I recently finished college and as a result was hoping to apply for a tefl course. Could anyone recommend a good and reliable course that would not be too expensive and could guarantee me a job?
I'm hoping to get going soon after Christmas if everything goes acording to plan?
Could anyone recommend any good countries to teach? I was thinking either the UAE or Japan but any feedback is much appreciated

I did one with TEFL courses Ireland, it was around 320 euro, but it was really good. 100 hours online, 20 hours in class. The in - class was great, and I really enjoyed it! There's discounts as well if you're a recent graduate, unemployed or a student! And you don't have to prove your status as any of the above! I think they have some summer sale until the 31st of august too! They have a job centre on the website too

I am going to be an English language assistant for the year in Spain. I'm going to work with a company called Meddeas. I start in two weeks! You get paid 840 euro a month, and you only work 20 hours. My brother worked for them last year. He got on so well that the school asked him to stay on, and now he's an English teacher in a primary school in Spain and he gets paid as much/almost as much as any qualified primary school teacher in Spain! See for me, I would only be going to Germany or Spain, but that's because I speak both of the languages and want to improve my spoken languages. But, of course middle eastern countries pay their english teachers an awful lot. And just remember, if you do a TEFL course your not qualified to teach in Ireland! But some places would take you on with it.

Is TEFL Courses Ireland the best one? They have a sale on at the moment, thinking of going for it but not sure if there's better companies around the same price range? Around €280 for 120 hour course.
