I was getting two different answers at ESLCafe (their forum is full of recruiters pretending to be "helpful teacher colleagues" and then I read this here on Reddit... https://www.reddit.com/r/ESL_Teachers/c ... rement_to/ What is the truth guys?

Norman is right - These recruiters have been feeding me a bunch of BS and I fell for it last year taking a course from OnlineTEFL.com. But I know have the assurance that if I want to go teach in Haiti, Guatemala, or Somalia, THEY will "recognize" this otherwise worthless piece of paper that I paid $299 for! http://www.opnlttr.com/letter/foreign-e ... equirement

for Z Visa

Plan A bachelor degree + two years related work experience.
Plan B bachelor degree + TEFL or other English teaching certificates.

Plan B means a college graduate, who has a TEFL, can work in China without related work experience.
