    It is a fact that most schools prefer younger teachers in their twenties. This is perhaps because they can pay them less and manipulate them more easily. However, there are certainly many schools which prefer older teachers who can often bring authority to the classroom as well as greater experience and style to the lessons. Although most jobs won't specify an age limit, it is as well to let the school know when you apply how old you are to avoid....

    I agree with Pete but having lived in Thailand for the past 8 years, I know that there are very few teachers over 65 that can "legally" teach. I say this because of the mandatory retirement age for Thai public school teachers (government civil service). If a foreign teacher is over the age limit and still working at the school but Thai teachers are forced to retire, this can sometimes lead to resentment which is understandable because it is a dou....

With regards to age requirements, this can be somewhat “nebulous” because most countries have mandatory retirement ages for their native teachers that generally are around 60 years old. This being said, there are some schools that will take on a senior teacher if their need is great and the teacher proves to be adept and ener....

    Note: this has been cross-posted to the new forum at 1) David's English Teaching World vs. Dave's ESL Cafe (discussion forums) Dave Sperling of ESL Cafe has seen challengers come and go over the last thirteen years. Some have persisted and even thrived as go-to websites in their own right but none have made a real dent in ESL Cafe's traffic and/or user base. In that regard, David's ELT World is differ....

    Criteria for choosing a TESOL course (views: 3411)

    - Online - Mon, 14 Jul 2008 Posted by eigoman

    Just a quick rant on something I read somewhere and now can't find. An experienced teacher answered a query on a forum regarding criteria for choosing a TESOL certificate with the advice that the person make sure it qualified for credits towards a Master's degree program. This seems ridiculous to me. I know some TESOL courses do garner credits with some Master's programs. While there is nothing wrong with that, it shouldn't be seen as distinguish....

    Thanks for plug on my blog! Mexico can be tough for landing a job over the net or by telephone. You'll pretty much have to resign yourself to coming here before having employment secured. I would advise be very vague about your TEFL qualification when applying. Oxford is well known in Mexico and will shut doors rather than open them. Play up your degree or any other experience you have. ....

    Interesting. Are you saying that no course is better than this course as far as employers in Mexico are concerned? It used to be that schools preferred something to nothing but that might be changing. And maybe it should. ....

    Darn it, had a typo in that last post. No, I wouldn't say that having no course is better than this one, though I can see how I may have left that impression. I don't want to kick Oxford around here online, but they are known well enough for not providing actual teaching practice. Highlighting that on a resume isn't a good idea in my opinion. I don't see any harm in mentioning having taken a TEFL course (and any course is probably better than not....
