Hi guys!

Im Swedish and speak fairly well English if I may say so myself. Im thinking about getting a TEFL certificate and teach English in China. The problem is that there are a zillion different sites that offer TEFL certificates but I've read somewhere that the vast majority of them are not recognized in China.

Can someone here please recommend a site with valid TELF certificates that offers online courses!

Thanks in advance!

It’s not the certificates that aren’t recognised, it’s the on-line courses and that goes for the on-line degrees. It’s certainly a short cut, but not one I’d recommend.

Since there is no international standards established for TEFL certification, Chinese employers do not give much weight nor credence to TEFL certificates, and dismiss those that were obtained through on online or CD course. But they also recognize the fact that TEFL courses are money-makers so many employers like EF and Wall Street push applicants into their own TEFL courses. Officially TEFL certificates are not required to teach in China but recruiters like to say otherwise. More about this subject can be found at http://reddit.com/r/chinatefl.
