What course to do?
Who to do it with?
What country to go to?
What to expect?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
This website is the biggest job site for Asia.
From my experience the tefl cert you have doesn't matter, Groupon has deals for tefl certs for 5-10 dollars no need to pay hundreds for one.
The most staple places are Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan. Other countries have less stable markets like Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
When contacting schools ask for a foreign workers contact and you can ask the foreigner questions, make sure you can get a legitimate work visa, many schools will lie and say they can get you one, if they can't then you should quit.
Best thing is to pick a country you like and then a city and look from there. If you've other questions it's better to pm me.
