No, I'm saying there English is what you said it was mate Not worse and not better
I didn't think you would agree with me about things changing. But it's definitely the case, certainly here in Bangers anyway....maybe not where you are

I have a newbie question...what does OP mean? I know I am one, but I don't know what it means.
Well I decided to take my goody goody girlfriend to a bar to meet some of my friends tonight. We'll see what happens AF. A test to see how "bar girl" she really is. hahahaha I'll keep you guys informed.
EP, in case you hadn't had your question answered from April 7, OP on forums means "Original Post."
THE TRASH IS IN THE IZE BOX yet once again, with no apologies from me. Next time there's one off topic post, don't be the least bit surprised if the thread is closed.
This part of Ajarn Forum is the Staffroom, not a place to discuss sex, receding hairlines, etc. Plenty of other places to play in the toybox.
Opening post or opening poster.

In most states in the US you need a teacher's certificate, which requires one year tacked onto your BA--that's for teaching in the public schools. (Substitute teaching does not require any sort of credentials in Minnesota because the demand is so high; other states I don't know).
There are now many ESL programs in universities and community colleges for foreign students. Your experience teaching in Asia would apply directly to teaching in one of these programs because many of the students are Asian. However, most of the programs requires an MA in TESOL, but there are some in which a CELTA certificate will get you in.
so many people do a masters in tesol or linguistics, how do you stand out from the crowd. personally i do a masters in something else and dop a dip tefl and or postgraduate certificate in education instead.
Yes, your teaching here and with a TEFL can lead to teaching in the states. You can work for a private language firm (EF, ELS, etc.) and in some cases you can teach in state schools in the ESL program.
If you want to teach something other than ESL, though, then credentials are required by most states. In California, for instance, you can get a CBEST, which is the 'teaching license' required of substitute teachers and can be obtained with just a bachelor's and taking (and passing) a test. Otherwise, a degree in Education is required to teach on a full-time basis.
I've taught in private language schools in the states with only my TEFL cert. I have friends that teach in the Boston school system in the ESL program and they began with only their Peace Corps experience, no TEFL or Education degree.
yeah, isn't that great? I stopped reading when I got to this gem: "The first course is the One-day Certificate In Teaching English to Children, which is held early each year on Sundays in different cities around Japan."Originally Posted by hentaigaijin
One day. One stinkin' day, and I'll bet that there are opening and closing tea ceremonies. Granted, if you saw it as an endorsement to your existing TEFL cert (especially if you had a CELTA but not a CEYTL or a Ceylonese celery), it might be a very brief refresher course.

you want to teach in japan and korea----you have a BA and arent already there??
buddy- you need to get off the forums and start emailing!!! look at korean recruiters...email them and you will get blown awya by the response.
make simple cover letters, polish your resume and you are GOLDEN for korea. japan is a bit rougher competition-wise but in some cases, like eikaiwa- a private language school- they will hire people from lots of backgrounds.
if you want to go to korea- that is your website. period.
ive thrice been to korea. good food. decent pay. unfriendly environment.
