If you wouldn't mind guys
I'm just wondering a few things about teaching abroad in general, and hopefully some kind fellow can shed some light on a few things for me.
First of all, a few things; I want to teach in the far east, i'm 23, have a degree, and I want to do a CELTA in the summer. Is having a degree and a CELTA a relatively good thing? Like, would I be looked upon favourably by prospective employers? Sorry I can't really be more specific with this one haha.
Also, will the fact that i'm young have anything to do with my applications? Do schools in the far east, and the east in general, favour older teachers because they see them as more experienced?
And one more thing, will the CELTA enable me to teach younger learners? I have no qualms with teaching adults (which is why I want the CELTA) but I suppose in the long run, I would prefer to work with younger learners/teens. Will I absolutely have to have the YL extension to the CELTA, or will having the CELTA standalone be enough?
Thanks to anyone who can answer these (probably) overasked questions
