In-Person vs On-Line Training

Posted By: Rick Derflinger <>

I'm in the process of trying to decide whether to take an on-line or in-person TEFL certification. To keep things simple, we'll assume that either course is 120 hours with at least 6 hours of practicum.

I don't have any EFL teaching experience. I do have 20+ years coaching experience.

My goal is to get a Business English job in China.

My question is what is preferred/required by employers? On-Line or In-person?

I see some some ESL providers, WSE for example, that say you must do in-person if you do not have 2 years of ESL experience. What I don't want to do is get an on-line/blended Cert and then be told it's no good.

So, are there limitations to the on-line cert that one will not face if they do in-person cert?

Any feedback and guidance is greatly appreciated.
