Hello there,

I'm a 26 year old Australian...I've taught English in China before (6 months) and now I'd like to teach in Germany as I love the country, the culture and the people !

Now, I have an undergraduate degree in psychology and a TESOL certificate (100 hours - in class).

Will this be enough to secure employment?

I'm considering doing an MA in TESOL. Is this is a good idea or would you recommend other course/s?

Thanks,

Nick.

Well, I don't know much about your certificate, but it might be difficult for you to get work since you are non-EU. Bring start-up money definitely. I'd recommend an MATESOL. It would up your chances of working and living here.

Why would an employer jump through all those bureaucratic hoops to hire you, a non-EU national, when they can hire a native speaker from an EU country ? (UK or Ireland)

Well, Scot, you're probably not asking me, but I don't know why an employer would hire me, a non-EU national over someone from the EU, but they just did. Of course, my being already here in Germany, fluent in German and having an MATESOL may have something to do with it. It is possible, but maybe not probable.

Fluency in German is a big plus. How many hopefuls clutching a new CELTA can boast that !????
