Default Teaching English abroad

Hey there,

I have been looking into doing a TEFL course...and got the advice to do one with teflireland and had a look on there website www.teflireland.com

Has anyone done one with them? Or any better ideas?

Also I would be interested in hearing from someone who has been teaching abroad, really interested in going to Asia...?

Cat

So did you do a TEFL course before you went? One of my friends did the i-to-i one and said it gave her just so much confidence before you go! See I dont have any experience in teaching...so I really would rather have some kind of preparation!

Just a thought, you'll get more responses for this in the langers forum. That is all.

no girl, i didnt do any course before i went. I had 5 hours training in Japan and taught my first lesson. In at the deep end, yes, but at least you dont have a chance to be nervous. I had no experience in teaching either.
In asia, they are generally looking for conversational english speakers to teach and think about it, you have been speaking english all your life(i hope) so you ARE capable. In school, students are generally taught by Japanese teachers whose pronunciation is a bit off as they use different syllabels(sp?) etc. Thats why there is such a demand for native english speakers.
