Hi I'm not Lucy, but can perhaps help:

Try the CELTA ... uth-africa

Maybe it's not cheap, but with it you should have few problems finding work.

The CELTA is an excellent course, as is Trinity. You should check if they're offered in S Africa. You could get in touch with the British Council or British Consulate to find out. You didn't say what you lecture in. Could you teach that subject abroad?
