CELTA Italy

Hi, I'm currently looking at options for taking a CELTA at some point next year. The two countries i would like to teach in are Vietnam and Italy. I have done a fair bit of research into Vietnam and now I'm looking at Italy. So inevitably I have some questions I'd like to put to those of you with ex...

Re: Finding work in Vietnam without a degree

As far as i'm aware you need a degree just to get a work permit in Vietnam, never mind a job. Although i'm told that the Vietnamese work permit is such a pain to get that some schools don't bother getting you one. That is second hand information though so i wouldn't put too much faith in it

Re: Which Course

Thanks Alex, I have to admit i am more tempted to do the course over there as it means i can get on a plane even sooner. I'm getting itchy feet after five months of waiting for a Canadian visa and going through various set backs. I was supposed to be away half way through April. Do you happen to kno...

After a fair bit of research i'v decided that Vietnam would be my ideal destination. Preferably HCMC but i don...

Re: Which Course

Does this just mean an undergraduate degree (which i have) or an undergraduate degree which is 1st class (mine is only 3rd class unfor...

Re: Which Course

Hi Radmila, Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure what i want to do after the course, ideally i would like to use TEFL to see the world whilst earning enough to live off. Places like China, Japan and Vietnam appeal to me because their cultures are so different to what i know. It sounds like a CELTA re...

Which Course

I graduated from university back in October and while i plan on traveling for a year (Canada) when i get back i am strongly considering taking up TEFL. I was put onto the idea by a friend of mine who is currently teaching in South Korea. The problem is there are so many courses available i don't rea...
