Share Your Thoughts: CELTA vs. TESOL Programs
by Mike Richard | April, 2009
Fellow traveler, Aimée, writes in to ask a bit of advice on CELTA versus TESOL teaching programs:
I’m focusing on confronting my fears of navigating a path in the world alone and getting a plan of action into place. I’ve been investigating teaching English in Asia and South America and have decided to get certified abroad – my first baby step.
As far as I can deduce from the world wide web, CELTA and TESOL programs are everywhere. I can’t seem to get an answer about which program might be the better choice. Or perhaps there’s another I haven’t considered?
Any articles from the past or recent opinions out there about teaching abroad with either a TESOL vs. CELTA certificate? Is one worth more than the other?
Very very best to y’all
Anyone have any thoughts on either of these programs? Which one might be more appropriate or worthwhile? Any pertinent resources? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
