I am currently teaching in China. I have a BA in English Literature and, after this year, I'll have one years teaching experience and two years experience working with children in various capacities.
I have a question about taking a TEFL course. Many schools ask for a Tefl certificate, and my subsequent research in assessing the value of online courses state that a key part of any tefl teaching program is actual student interaction - a fact also stated by some school recruiters. Yet, considering my experience, would an online tefl course suffice to satisfy the job listings requirement for a "tefl certificate". I could show clearly on my CV I have plenty of experience with young learners in a classroom environment.
Thanks in advance for all assistance
