I am going to taiwan in feb, i have a degree, which is fine for taiwan, but no tefl.
and, i have only had a weeks teaching assistant experience. but i have been learning
from English language practice/ teaching books...
i do not have the time or money to do a TEFL course in the UK, is it worth me doing an
online TEFL? or, just going for it. i have been told that my accent, being quite BBC news,
will get me a job easy, which i find hard to believe. hehe
i know that for my first lesson i will have a mountain of notes, but basically i am crapping
myself and would like some advice. i have read the argument on whether is good to have
a TEFL or not... as a piece of paper... but what i gathered is that down to the person
actually teaching, but a TEFL will give a foundation of sorts. Also, from the research i have
done, some schools give a few days training...
can anyone give their guidance?
