I'm enrolled to take a CELTA certification course at Instituto Britanico in August in San Jose. Apparently there's a good chance I may get offered a TESL job there if I do well in the course. I was wondering, do any of you know anything about Instituto Britanico and its reputation as an employer? Also, for a college-educatated 23-year-old who has worked full-time as a journalist for a year, how difficult will a month-long CELTA certification course be? Thanks.

When I took my course it consumed all my time outisde the classroom. Any time I didn't spend eating, sleeping or commuting was spent working on my lesson plans. You may be different, but you should expect to have zero life outside of the course.

Any training course for EFL worth its salt will take all of your time. It took all of mine--and I was an experienced teacher.

Find out how much they would pay you to work there after you finish the course--might not be worth it...
