How to become a "TEFL" teacher

Unread post by Mchristine » 12 Oct 2011, 12:31

I live in Paris, am French but lived in the UK for quite some time and went to uni there. I am searching through the web for somewhere where I might do some teacher training in TEFL, as I would like to redirect (the rest of) my career in that direction. And I don't know where to start...
I phoned the British council here in Paris, but they weren't able to help. Can you ?

ITTT ( ... nce/paris/) gets a lot of very positive reviews.

ITTi (https://internationaltefltraininginstit ... bout-itti/) has courses from 120 hours up through a master's. Strangely, I couldn't find any independent reviews. lists seven TEFL programs in France (including ITTT).

There are also hundreds of online possibilities.
