TEFL Online Certification
« on: April 29, 2013, 10:03:29 AM »
Any recommendations for this? In terms of credibility, noteworthy instruction, and cost (both financially and time)?

Have a look through some jobs offers abroad that require TEFL.
There are varying degrees TEFL certificates and some are quite easy to get. If you look  through some of the job offers, they state a certain number of of study hours for them to recognise your TEFL cert. I can't remember the figure off the top of my head though.

Its usually 120 hours or more certificates that are considered noteworthy or creditable by most places. Where you get it from though can also have an effect.
