In Response To: HELP! Deciding on a program (Garrett Minx)

I will get my TEFL certification in HCMC, Vietnam (my girlfriend is there), and I'm curious if anyone out there can recommend any programs. I have a BA and all other requirements... now I just need to decide who to go with!

I'm looking at:
internationalteflacademy.com
avse.edu.vn/
(any other recommendations?)

I'm curious about job placement, global opinion of their course in regards to the respect it receives in the job market (like, do some schools seem to prefer training with one over the other?), compensation, alumni support, and simply your general experiences.

For starters, a TEFL cert is simply an entry-level qualification designed to get your foot in the door. In terms of global respect, go with the CELTA. I believe ILA and Apollo offer it in HCMC. The CELTA is recognized and respected the world over. It's administered by Cambridge, and therefore, the course content and delivery are the same regardless of where it's taken.

For more on TEFL qualifications and teaching in HCMC, head to the Cafe's Vietnam jobs discussion forum via the link below.
