Wow your job sounds interesting and great that it makes you laugh but yes I totally feel the need to earn extra pennies especially after backpacking for the past year, 2minute super noodles are fun for only a short time LOL! I just can't wait to get out of dreary Manchester again!
Celta is run through Cambridge it does hold more and is recognised in worldwide but it costs a lot more too, I think a lot of people do TEFL to begin and move onto CELTA in the future, I don't have a degree so I have chosen to do TEFL first as a stepping stone really, I am enjoying it. I think with CELTA you can teach in English speaking country's and TEFL is mainly for country's where English is not their native language.
PS What is CELTA? Does TEFL allow you to teach TESOL to foreign students? I need to work out what I am marketing....
Good for you. That's it you can extend the course duration and go at your own pace.
I am working through the grammer section. Exercise 31 onwards appears to be a bit tricky but using August to tackle these modules. The other sections seem a bit more lighter and creative. I have found the TEFL textbook invaluable resource.
I am a LAMDA Speech and Drama Coach by trade which I enjoy and in a play at Woking Theatre. Both jobs make me laugh, make me cry but not making me much money and I am hoping my TEFL qualification will pull in a bit of cash and be something I will love. I am impressed so far but I think it will take a few weeks to plough through the grammer section. If that is a 20 hour course I am the Pope.
Thanks for adding me. My first TEFL friend.
All the best
Hey, how are you? I went into this after coming back from travelling as I now have the travelling bug and after only reaching checkpoint 4 (as I am working through like a snail due to work commitments) I am coming to the conclusion that I do want to become a teacher full time, 27 and finally made a career decision I never thought it would happen! I think the course itself is great, I aim to do Celta in the future but for me and my situation tefl is perfect for me right now. How about you, where are you in the world?
Hey Jenny Thanks for adding me. You are my first TEFL buddy! How are you finding it?
Cheers for the advice although I have already booked onto the 140 hours TEFL . I have only just begun it but for now I think this is a comfortable stepping stone for me ,and wow I didn't remember grammar being so in depth in school! I have a lot of reading to do.
I would definatly go with the Bridge CELTA
as it combines both a vocational and academic learning (as endorced by cambridge university) to the qualification. Del
I'm glad I'm your NO 1 friend! Thank you for the advice the more people I speak to the more eager I am to do this, let me know what happens after your course is finished - keep me posted.
your defiantly my NO # 1 friend ! :) I like your vision and with the cost of university education,training in ESL/EFL is a sound inverstment for your future.
I wish I had done so 20 years ago, good luck. Im finishing the 120hr TEFL cert but have endorcements in young learners and business english modules left to do, so if you need guidence , drop me a line via my website.
I'm 27, very creative and love travelling. I have just come back from Australia after 1 year I am raring to enrol and complete my TEFL and begin a new adventure very soon.
