I have over three years of teaching experience in South Korea and I'm looking to teach somewhere new. Preferably, somewhere in the middle east. However, a lot of jobs I see requires some sort of certificate.

Right now the LoveTEFL 120HR online class is only 99 pounds which is pretty cheap but is it a waist of time? Will it help me at all with obtaining a position in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East, or other parts of Asia, ie. Malaysia?

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Waste of time.

What reputable employer will take you seriously with a qualification with that name.

Pay for a Trinity or CELTA. The jobs that these certificates open up are worth the initial outlay.

WASTE. Cannot believe this thread is being repeated with the same spelling error on yet another forum. We are English language teachers here, after all!!!!

LoveTEFL....seriously??

If it is not 120 hours of classroom time plus at least 6 hours of observed teaching time then it wont be useful for any country or school that requires a TEFL certification. The best it will do is give you a few pointers that you would learn after a few months of work most likely anyways and maybe a slight leg up on another applicant that has no TEFL/experience at all.

If you want to work in the ME, get the CELTA or Trinity.
