    Default TEFL - Teaching English Overseas (Recommendations)

    Hey guys,

    Long time no chat.

    Cliffnotes... I've been working my way through my education degree and almost finished 3rd year. However I'm considering going overseas for a while in order to teach English.

    I've done a bit of reading, and I'm not sure which program to chase up with...

    I found a group called i-to-i (Not sure if they're actually legit or anything).

    Could anybody recommend an organisation to do it through?

    I'm in Australia if that matters at all...
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    Where are you thinking of going to work? The course most commonly asked for in job adverts is the CELTA, though an equivalent course would also do in many places. Online training is not held in high esteem and some employers won't look at these qualifications.

    I was looking at Asia/South-East Asia. Many of the organisations I've looked at have asked for TEFL or TESOL.

    These aren't specific courses but acronyms for the area of teaching, so if they're asking for these, then pretty much any course will do.
