Re: Teaching online for newly qualified TEFL teacher

I have a different issue with Pay Pal. i once got a payment-due notice form "Pay Pal" even though I had never used that service. I wrote to Pay Pal explaining my situation, asking for an explanation. They never responded. Even if it was phishing by some-one else, why couldn't Pay Pal have responded...

Pay pal isnt allowed in most of the asian countries
1. Not sure how true that is and in any case there are a million other ways for payments, including Alipay from China.

Re: Do agents make 40% on every student?!

I think there might have been some confusion (I think because of my original wording) re student referrals between schools although you went on to answer my question anyway. Just to confirm, the commission charged by schools in other countries for recommending a particular school in London is more ...

I share your enthusiasm for grammar, but prefer to see it not as a set of rules but more as a reflection of how we speak:

Re: Some information needed please

That really is a horses for courses question. It just depends on the country and on the school. Some will, some won't. But in general if you're talking about docs that only they have, then they will help you.

The verb governed by the catenative verb may be in infinitive form (with or without to) or in -ing form. In "...

In general YES. https://www.tefl.net/tefl-courses/guide.php Are you planning to travel abroad? If so, a degree (in any subject, which you have by the sound of it) is required but this is for work permit regulations. After that, a TEFL certificate is more and more required by schools.
