Q: Do I need a TEFL certificate applying for teaching jobs?

Do most teaching jobs require a TEFL or not? Or just a BA degree will be sufficient for work visa?

No, you need BA, TEFL Certificate and 2-years working experience (which can be in non-teaching).

To put it more to the point: You don't need it if you have proof of two years of experience in the related field. That could be a company recommendation letter, get it translated into Chinese if its in English.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
