    A 100-hour TESOL/TEFL certificate is the minimum requirement for an entry-level position in most countries. An online course doesn't cost more than $300.

    CELTA, Trinity CertTESOL, and TESL Canada are the most recognized certificates in the world and they cost up to $2,000.

    That just depends on what you want really. If you're looking to teach abroad for a year or two then you would be best doing a TEFL course. However if you're wanting to to teach English as a career, it might be worth investing in a CELTA course. You can get some advice about which course is right for you here:

    If you want to work in the UK you need a CELTA or Trinity TESOL certificate and they cost between £750-£1,200 for the 4 week course.

    If you want to work in Asia there are many online TEFL courses that are accepted widely there, which you can get for around £300. Generally you would want to do a 120 hour, independently accredited course.

    It depends what you want. If you want a cheap and cheerful online course to get a certificate and an entry level job then try ICAL. If you want to go for a top end TEFL course then try CELTA.

    They mostly ask questions about your view of language learning and teaching, and how you handle yourself basically. Being calm and having an open mind are very useful. Most programs are desperate for candidates, as it is a very expensive program they are trying to peddle. I know of a school - a supposedly good one - that accepted an austistic candidate :) One bit of advice: do not kill yourself during the program. Real life does not work that way.
