I am looking for the best route into teaching english abroad, and exploring nearly all avenues open to me and my tight financial situation, I would like some opinions on the following.
I would love to teach english in mainland Europe as of September for a 6-12 month contract, preferably to children and/or teenagers. I do not have any experience in this field, but I have got time working with me so that I can gain some good experience. A lot of the 4-week courses available are far out of my price range, so they will have to be overlooked unfortunately. I understand a lot of the weekend/online courses are either complete rubbish or can only offer so much, and generally are pointless if I want to secure a long contract abroad. SO, how about this for a plan? Indeed gain a TEFL/TESOL qualification from one of these weekend courses, then work at a camp over the summer. Would this be a suitable path accepted by future employers?
You're experienced opinions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks a mil
