Hey,

Sorry if this has been asked before - I am pretty set on taking a CELTA course, but while I have been browsing job availabilities in China, Taiwan, and Korea on Dave's ESL Cafe and Footprints Recruiting, I noticed most of the job descriptions require a TOFEL or TESOL certification ... I just want to make sure, am I right in assuming that I can apply to these programs with a CELTA certification, too?

Also, if anyone has any other links to look for teaching job postings abroad, that would be great :)

Cambridge's CELTA and Trinity's CertTESOL are two of the most internationally recognised qualifications in TEFL/TESOL.

If you are looking for jobs, Welcome - TEFL.com is a good site
