Q: Can I get a TEFL certificate in China?

Is it possible to get teaching qualifications in China or do you have to do it abroad. If anyone knows any place in Beijing, I'd appreciate it.

There's a TEFL TESOL school in Beijing, and the course runs one month long. Let me know if you want their number.

TEFL Certificate
The online TEFL certificates are the cheapest, starting at around 200-350 $US, and take either about 40 or 60 hours. The lessons can be completed whenever you want and you normally have your own advisor who corrects your work and gives you advice. They include video tutorials and you have practice lesson plans and learn the basics of English teaching training. The certificates are internationally accepted but most of the time your employer will ask for additional experience. Either way, having this TEFL certificate can sometimes get you an extra 2-4000RMB a month and will give you an advantage over other English teachers.

The TEFL Diploma
The online TEFL diplomas are around 600$US and take 120 hours but include extra training in business English and young learner education. Business English teaching pays extremely well and you have the benefit of teaching adults who are usually eager to learn.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
