Hi all,

I am 24 (25 later in May) & have been travelling through Asia, Europe & Australia. I absolutely loved it.

I'm not at uni studying Computer Science (just finished my first year) & ultimately would like to be able to teach English abroad.

What are your opinions on TEFL courses (or is there a better option?) I'm looking to try and do something over the summer. My friend did his in Paris but I would probably rather do mine in Asia (more expensive to get there but cheaper once there - and far nicer).

For example, this site offers a few different courses, if it's just the case that you need a TEFL, why get the full package?

I'm reluctant to do the online courses as I think they'd be viewed as 'cheap' & worthless.

Any advice would be great.

Cheers, Adam.

All depends on what country you want to go to to work. I'm teaching in Korea so if you want advice about working here let me know
