Hi

Im new here... I am contemplating getting a TEFL certificate and I wondered what I could realistically do with it.

Im 34, have 10 years experience as a practising lawyer and have recently moved into freelance translation. In the winter I also teach skiing. I am looking for a way to spend time in a francophone country between ski seasons (ie May to November) while still doing my translation work. This means no more than 20 25 hours a week and round-the-clock access to the internet.

So my question is: can I realistically do something along these lines with a TEFL certificate and no language teaching experience? I dont care too much about the rate of pay provided that my accommodation is covered.

I am posting this in the France, Africa and Caribbean forums - ideally Id like to teach in the French Caribbean but I realize Im already asking a lot...

I have a UK passport, BTW.

Id appreciate any advice,

Thanks,

CC

Hi Caveman

I know it's been 2 years since your post so guess you might not be a member of this forum anymore but just in case you are I wondered how you are getting on and whether you did leave the law and do tefl?
I'm a lawyer too but also wanting to leave the legal world and give tefl a go so wanted to know how you have found things??
