Hello Everyone! I posted this in the Newbie forum as well, wasn't sure which forum was the appropriate place for this.

My wife and I are native english speakers living in Canada, and are looking to get TESOL or TEFL certified. It seems like we have two options A) do a program that certifies you in the country in which you will end up teaching or B) do a certification here in Canada.

Option A, based on my internet research, will run is at least 2000 USD which really sucks for us due to the poor Canadian Dollar. But out of all the companies I've looked at, we're considering Language Corps Asia.

Option B is limited, as we only have two companies that offer certification; Oxford Seminars, and Global TESOL College (http://www.globaltesol.com/). We are considering the latter simply because they are offering half price for the second certification, which would be my wife's. However, I'm a little concerned, as their 120 hour TESOL certification offers 60 hours in class, and the rest we need to complete online on our own time. How does this compare to TESOL / TEFL Certification standards world wide in terms of recognition and job placement?

Any advice, input or suggestions regarding the options mentioned above, or a better course of action, would be greatly appreciated.

We're mainly looking at going to SE Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia mainly), but will also consider the middle east.

Thank You so much in advance!
