Delta is at the same level as an MA, but that does not make it the same as an MA. Even in the UK.

Are you saying that there are teachers that don't know the difference between the CELTA and the TOEFL test for non-native speakers in the US?

WOW... Rolling Eyes

Can't imagine being quite that clueless about one's own 'profession.' But, anything is possible I guess. Laughing Actually I am not sure about how long a particular TOEFL test score is accepted. I would have thought that was up to the institution. Maybe the two year time limit is from ETS and their doing an official report.

But... again we digress...
