I'm interested in getting a Diploma, already have CTEFLA (CELTA) and 10 years teaching experience.
The problem is, I live in Japan & don't have the time to return to England to take the DELTA course. So I think distance learning is the best. But, even through distance learning DELTA, you have to return to England for two weeks or so to teach observed/graded lessons which I also don't have the time or financial resources for. So, I'm thinking the TESOL Diploma is the next best thing as it's cheaper and doesn't require lessons observed/graded.
Has anyone taken the TESOL Diploma distance course? Or even the DELTA distance course? How was it for you? I mean, how did you get on with it? How do you rate the TESOL Diploma? Did you have to have observed lessons, or not?
Any advice or info is greatly appreciated!
