In Response To: TEFL Hong kong Teachers (Adam)

I've taught in HK. Unless one of you is very well qualified or has a business/diplomatic job, you will be on very low wages for the co-st of living. Sharing a small apartment might be affordable. There are jobs there for no-experience ESL teaches, mostly with small children and mostly with abysmal management, but you might manage to find some ok roles by looking around.
Great place to be, though, if you get out of the city itself a lot.

As others said, do a CELTA at home where the cost of living while you do it is che-ap, and use contacts from there to get some experience first.
You do NOT have time to do anything else while on the course.
Maybe the CELTYL or Trinity's version would be more suited to HK.
