Should I get tesl vs tefl certified?
I am currently taking a TESL certificate course but was informed that TESL is really only needed if you want to teach in an English speaking country. I am debating dropping out and taking a TEFL course instead. The issue is that it is difficult to find a TEFL course with in class hours near where I live. I am hoping to teach in both Korea and Japan. Does anyone know which certificate is better? Do I need to spend the extra on TESL or will I be ok with a TEFL? From what I understand Japan doesn't require the TEFL at all but Korea does.
