Haha I think we have our wires crossed. I also work at ILA. There used to be a rule that to take the DELTA through ILA you had to be officially employed by ILA (I think)..... I know that this is no longer the case. Anyone who has a CELTA can apply for a DELTA at ILA.

Bruno, ILA's Teacher Training Manager confirmed the Feb-Mar '14 Delta is full so I'm considering the DistanceDelta for Mod 1 and doing Mods 2-3 in Bangkok or ILA next fall. (I've only taught in China and Canada).

Does ILA's presence in Vietnam affect its competition? Are there other schools that are at least aware of the CELTA credential? I've mostly taught in China where many FTs don't even have a TEFL but since I do, I might consider doing my next contract there while working toward Mod 1 completion. Have any of your colleagues done the ICELT or TKT? Are they considered intermediary quals and would anyone recommend them? Most of my teaching has been with kids and beginner to lo-intermediate adults.

I'm not in a qualified position to give you the most up to date facts, but from what I understand I'll try to answer as much as I can.

First you say you have a Tefl? What qualification is it? The DELTA has some pre-requisites for entry, although from what you say it seems like you have already had some contact over that. Just a thought.

Secondly, if I had the choice between Bangkok and Vietnam I wouldnt even have a second thought. Vietnam is a easy place to live, pretty stress free (in my experience), I've never lived in Bangkok but I know people who have (dont we all :p) and I feel I made the right choice.

In terms of ILA's qualifications and the rest of the teaching world. ILA obviously offer the CELTA and DELTA. I think the CELTA that ILA offer affects things here. There are a few schools that require a CELTA or equivalent to teach, and certainly in terms of pay it will make a difference where ever you end up. Add to that the tried and tested methodology (its not the one true way, but its probably the best on offer) and yeah I think ILA's presence has an influence on its competition.

Thanks mk87. I met an Englishman in Beijing last year who invited me to visit him in Vietnam sometime. I've been thinking about him lately.
