Has anyone ever gone through the certification process? I'm considering doing it, but I'm not sure how to go around it. It seems as if a lot of the courses offer a package deal (meaning, you take TEFL courses while you are teaching abroad), but I know I can't afford doing that at the moment. I've found a bunch of websites that offer TEFL online, but I'm not sure how legit they are. As for researching college campuses in my area, the only courses I can find locally are TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language), but I'm not interested in that. Argh. If anyone can offer advice, I'd greatly appreciate it!
