In Response To: TEFL Hong kong Teachers (Adam)

I am looking at possibly moving to Hong Kong and have been looking at applying for a TEFL course so I can get a visa and work. However as I have no teaching experience is there any TEFL teachers that would be free to meet in the first week of April? or any way of getting to sit/assist/volunteer in a lesson or two?

You're asking if there are any teachers in Hong Kong willing to allow you into their classroom (if that's even permissible by the employer). Rather than counting on strangers to provide a platform for you to do some volunteer teaching, look into TEFL courses that include a supervised/assessed teaching practice component. The CELTA, for example, is globally recognized and provides teaching practice. If you plan to do a TEFL course in your home country, there likely are opportunities to volunteer teach in your area.

That said, trying to land a job in Hong Kong with zero paid teaching experience will be a challenge. I suggest you head to the Cafe's Hong Kong job discussion forum to ask expats currently teaching there whether your expectations are realistic. See the link below.
