Looking into TEFL
I've heard some good things about pursuing TEFL as a career, but I've also heard some very very bad. Does anyone have experience of it?
I know I'm not going to get rich from it, but is the pay enough to live on?
If you decided to leave the sector, how seriously was your experience taken by prospective employers?

really depends on where you would be teaching and how you live there. Going to clubs every weekend is definitely out of the question for newbies. I'm still teaching in China, so far it's OK-ish. Some supplement their income with private tutoring and such-which may or may not be legal in some countries. take a loot at these if you're looking into getting certified. http://teflintl.com/guaranteed_jobs_china.htm http://teflintl.com/guaranteed_job_vietnam.htm http://teflintl.com/guaranteed_job_korea.htm http://teflintl.com/thai_special_project.htm do your research before signing up with a provider. most people agree that online courses is better than nothing, but shouldn't really be taken/done unless you already have teaching experience.

The most important things to ask yourself right now is where do you want to teach and why do you want to go? Generally, you're right in thinking you don't get rich TEFLing. If you have god qualifications, such as a Master's in Education, then you can arn a very fine living abroad. If you're more interested in travel and learning about another culture, then TEFLing is good for you, but not as a way to earn a lot of money.
