I have UK Qualified Teacher Status as a primary school teacher, but i have a lot of TEFL experience in the past to draw from. I also have a degree in English and History, with a minor in Linguistics.
I was interested to know if my old TEFL courses would still be valid now, as I want to teach English in South America, and I don't really fancy doing a month-long course if I don't have to.
I did an i-to-i short TEFL course back in 2003, and a 2-week Berlitz English Language instructor course in 2004. I worked for Berlitz in Germany for 2 and a half months, then worked for a few different language schools in London for a year before leaving TEFL and going into primary and special Needs teaching.
I wanted to know if many schools in South America would take me on with these qualifications and experience, or if I would need to do another CELTA or Trinity TESOL course?
