    I wanted to respond to your post because I was in a similar situation when I got into TEFL. I was a French and German teacher in the UK before taking a TEFL course. I still found the TEFL course very useful and practical because teaching English, while using many of the same techniques, is different. Also, the course I took (Via Lingua CTEFL in Crete) has a very practical approach and gives you a lot of real practice. I found that the CELTA and Trinity courses focused a lot more on teaching theory and methodology when I researched them. Because I felt I already had this basis, I chose the Via Lingua course. CELTA and Trinity are big names but the certificate from other course providers is the same (if not better) because it is still internationally recognised. I had NO trouble finding a job with the Via Lingua certificate. I also appreciated the focus on teaching English grammar. Even if you know grammar, you learn how to teach it - this is what I meant by the practical application. I found the course well worth the money and I have found a great job with my Via Lingua certificate... and you can't beat the island of Crete for a nice place to relax after long days at school! Good luck to you in your search.
