Thanks for being available, and providing so much insight on this new field! I've already read some of the posts which have been quite informative.
I'm just writing to get some answers more specific to my needs.
I have ministry and public speaking training, I have experience in teaching the Bible for some years now. I am fascinated with language, and am currently learning Spanish. It is my goal to move out of the country to expand my preaching work, but see a great opportunity in teaching english while abroad. I'm looking into South America - Peru, Columbia, or Ecuador. I would prefer teaching children and teenagers, but I'm pretty flexible.. Which age group do you find offers more work? or does it depend on the area? I don't have any other degrees, just figured this would be a great starting point. I've been doing online research for a while, and I think I'm deciding on the courses offered by Bride TEFL. I think Cambridge CELTA sounds most beneficial. What do you think of Part time or online courses? I have found that the most well known, externally accredited credited training courses are CELTA and TRINITY. It seems that these courses are only available abroad, is there anyway to obtain these certifications in the USA?
I look forward to your responses. Thank you.
