Regan - I'm sorry we haven't gotten back to you. I think there's good points to both doing your course before-hand or after you've taught for a while. If your position will be as an assistant teacher, I would say wait and get some experience first. It will make the course easier as well as more interesting. I think you'll get more from it and the information will seem more valuable. If you are going to be the main teacher somewhere, you might want to take the course first. Your probably going to get a position with little direction and a lot of responsibility. You will definitely benefit from some background knowledge and training. I hope that is helpful and thanks for listening. Happy teaching, Mark

Hi Mark and Eric, Just discovered your podcast and downloading episode after episode now - they are a bit adictive! Do you guys recommend completing TESOL/TEFL certificate before you start teaching English overseas? Interested to hear your thoughts… Keep up the good work! Regan Western Australia
