MOst certs that are 120 hours with 6 of teaching practice are good. BUt the namebrand ones: SIT, CELTA, and Trinity might be preferred by some.

I currently live in the metropolitan Washington, DC area, which has a very diverse population. As such, ESL programs are widespread and growing. My local community college just started offering a certificate program this year. Course listings and other info can be found here:

While I remain undecided as to whether to enter the ESL field, I continue to review various programs. (I have a BS in information systems management) I've posted mainly in the Taiwan forum as that's where I will be moving eventually.

Thoughts, feedback, and questions are welcome.

Cheers!


If you are looking at Taiwan you might want to look into getting a teachers certificate and state licensing. Without it you are limited to the language academies and it is a hard row to hoe and you will be competing with a bunch of 20-somethings (and the directors are looking for young folks to sing, dance and play with kids).

If you DO get it then you are eligible for work in the public school system. The salary is about double what you get in the academies and often include perks such as airfare, housing, medical insurance, etc.

Make sure you know the difference between ESL and EFL. What they teach in Taiwan will be EFL.
