    As for the initial training, I'd usually recommend a CELTA (as mentioned above) but this is not designed for teaching young learners, which you may find to be a problem, given that you say you'd like to teach kids.

    I think as long as the institute you choose is suitably accredited, any of the Level 5 courses you list in post #1 would be suitable for your needs. You might want to pay attention to any job placement assistance the course offers, too.
    Thank you for your answers!

    jutfrank, I am eligible for the courses listed.
    I am eligible for the TEFL Diploma offered by i-to-i. No initial training or previous experience is required.

    But youíre half right, because many other places require initial training and experience for a TEFL Diploma.

    Unfortunately, I am not eligible for the CELTA course (high school diploma required, i do not have).
    I learned a profession.

    Note my corrections above.

    I did my first ever TEFL training with i-to-i. It was just an introductory weekend course but it was well run and interesting.

    I have lived in Cambodia- the CELTA is respected there regardless of the age of the students.

    Re: Which TEFL course should I choose?

    Thanks for the help.

    I choose the 300-hour course offered by i-to-i. After the course, I take a TOEIC language exam.

    What other additional courses can you offer?
    I would also do CELTA, but as I mentioned earlier, I donít have a high school diploma. CELTA requires a high school diploma!

    I would also like to do a CELTA no comma here but, as I mentioned earlier, I don’t have a high school diploma and CELTA requires one. a high school diploma!

    Re: Which TEFL course should I choose?

    I got a response from tefl.ie.

    So in the first post, I withdraw negative opinions.

    What could be the difference?

    See my corrections above. I don't know what you mean by the underlined sentence. Do you mean that you have discounted the courses in post #1 that you/we have a negative opinion of?

    Do they have any classroom practice?

    Re: Which TEFL course should I choose?

    Thanks for your help, my question is no longer important. I got all my questions answered from a TEFL teacher.

    Now the point is one: I need to learn English at C1 level.

    Dear emsr2d2 and other English teachers I would like to ask:

    What method do you suggest for learning English?
    I am currently learning in a way that does not use my native language. It is a paid course, it cost a lot, it was developed by Hungarians, in principle it is the best, it develops all skills, so it covers all areas. In principle, you don't have to add anything to it, because the material is so complete!

    My other method is "Flow English Advanced" - you just have to listen to it. Similar to Effortless English.

    The point of all my learning English is that I don’t translate words into my native language. The understanding of words takes place through different images and situations. I would like to show you a detail of it, but I would like to send it privately or possibly to an email address. I really want to show you the method, I want you to check its effectiveness.

    As English teachers, what else can you suggest to me?
    But the material must be monolingual in 100%! This is very important.

    I know I made a lot of mistakes in this text because I was in a hurry! I'm sorry! And thanks for the help!
