    I’m also considering a career change into TEFL after working for a couple of years in a boring office setting.

    I just finished my TEFL certifications this summer to prepare for teaching in South Korea in the spring. I did a 150-hour online certificate through learnTEFL (pretty cheap, maybe $50?), which provided the necessary grammatical information and basic teaching theory. Then I did a 20-hour in-class TEFL certification with i-to-i TEFL in Chicago. In case you are considering South Korea, the public school programs like EPIK and GEPIK have stated that they’re preferring candidates who have in-class components to their TEFL certifications.

    Feel free to check out my blog ( if you’re interested in the process of applying to teach (specifically in Korea), which I’ve been blogging about lately as I figure things out! Any idea where you’re looking to teach? Good luck with your course!

      Hey there, and thanks for the useful advice. To be honest, right not I’m just looking to get the qualification done and then see what happens next year. I’m fortunate that my office job is very flexible and gives me a chance to travel!
