Re: Is there no chance for me with HIV?

Wow,sorry to hear of your unpleasant surprise. I think you need to find a country that does not require medical certificates which would eliminate most all Asian countries. I think you might have a shot in Latin America which is not very regulated on foreign TEFL teachers yet. Good luck to you. What...

Re: Scam Alert - CUCAS Study In China Program Targeting Teachers

The thing is you can get these scholarships yourself for free instead of paying CUCAS $3000 to fill out your application forms for you. Anyone with a GPA of 3.0 or higher can get the Fullbright or CSC scholarships simply by applying directly online. The problem with CUCAS is their total deception - ...

Re: Realistic Chinese TEFL Salaries

I cannot agree that anyone will make a lot or save a lot of money in China. You will make enough to live comfortably in China, but not enough to buy a car or rent an apartment in Beijing or Shanghai without roomies. I think people need to be realistic with their expectations of China and read up her...

Re: Ways to test the waters of TEFL before jumping in?

A good 120 hour TEFL course taught at your local community college would be a good start and give you the confidence you need to get to second base. Avoid the online courses which are garbage. TEFL can be enjoyable or it can be tedious depending on your students and your employer. If you plan to wor...
