Hello, I have a question about acquiring a TEFL certificate, and in my situation, what would be the best way to approach becoming certified.
I'm a 25-year-old English major currently attending a community college. I will be transferring in January of 2006 (possibly to NYU, Syracuse, or Binghamton, but I haven't made any concrete plans just yet). My question is, do most universities offer a TEFL course as an option, or this is something that would have to be obtained exclusively from a language school?
I would like to become certified as quickly as possible, so I can try and get a job abroad next summer teaching English. However, if most college and universities offer this as an option, it seems like a waste of money and time to become certified from an outside source. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
