i am from china. now i am working at a tour company. i have been studying english last 5 years . now i have a good command of english. i got 6 on IELTS exam last year. now i am thinking to be a teacher in the future. i search lots of course online. many said that thier's are the best. but i am confused about to take which one?
is CELTA ok for Non-native speakers? or do we have to take TEFL first before get CELTA?
which TEFL is the best on the base of classroom in china?

CELTA is fine for non-native speakers, but you will need at least an IELTS 6.5 or 7.0 to get on a course. As well as working on your language, you could take a course to prepare for the Cambridge TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test)
