Teaching English-Language Corps
Hi, I'm new here and am considering moving to Buenos Aires. I plan on supporting myself by teaching english and had a few questions.
The first one is a matter of certification. I've noticed there are a lot of different types of EFL certification, but have also heard that these certificates are not neccessary for employment. Could anybody shed some light on the advantages of being EFL certified as opposed to not being certified. Especially considering there's usually a 1,000 dollar, or more, fee to attain the certification.
The second, has anybody heard of language corps? They seem like a great company that provides their participants with home stay families throughout the first month, during which they receive an EFL certificate. Has anybody had experience with this program, and perhaps more importantly, do you think its a good idea to pay to be part of a program, or to go it alone?
Just curious, any help would be great.
