My partner and I are both 28 and would love to teach in Thailand. Unfortunately, neither of us have degrees so understand it will be very hard to find employment. Therefore, we've both also been looking at China, which seems a little more relaxed.
Currently, we have a few choices and wonder if anyone can advise on what they think might give us the best chances of getting work:
1. Do a CELTA course here in the UK, which would allow us to afford to live comfortably in China for one month without a job. My worry with this option is that although a recognised course, it doesn't focus on working with children (which could limit our choices)
2. Do a 120 hour course in China with practical experience, then attempt to find our own work there. Finances would allow us to live comfortably for one month. There are also options for a guaranteed job placement, but as this is a little more expensive, we could probably only survive for about 2 weeks without work!
3. Do an online 120 hour course (with no practical experience), then afford to live in China for up 3 months to find a job
Any suggestions/recommendations would be much appreciated!
