    Hi, Need help! we just moved to Singapore and I want to work as an English teacher here. I have done my B Ed but would like to equip myself with an extra qualification. Thinking of doing TESOL/DELTA/CELTA. Can anyone guide me as to which qualification will serve me better. How to find a job as an ESL teacher ? Where and how to look for jobs ? Many thanks! ES

    The CELTA is the most widely recognised basic qualification, so that would be a good place to start.

    Sites like http://www.tefl.com/ have lots of jobs advertised. Here's a Singapore page: http://www.asiateachingjobs.com/singapore

    Re: ESL Teaching jobs in Singapore

    I want to perfect my pronunciation and do not intend to start working for another 6 months as have a new born baby. If I need to choose between CELTA and DELTA - which one is the better choice given that one is diploma and the other is certificate. So sorry to bother you again, but your help is the only solace which I have in this new country. Thanks once again.

    Re: ESL Teaching jobs in Singapore

    The CELTA is an entry-level course and the DELTA is meant for experienced teachers. If you can get on the DELTA with your qualifications, it may help you get jobs higher up the academic stream, but I don't know what experience you have. If you're interested in the DELTA, ask the centre if they'll accept you with your qualifications and experience.
