A qualifications conundrum

Can you help out and offer some advice to this teacher?

Are TEFL teachers unambitious?

What can you do about it if you feel you're stuck in a 'teaching rut'?

Do you want to be a TEFL teacher or a licensed teacher?

The positives and the negatives of each

Do you want to continue working in TEFL or become a licensed teacher in your home country and go for the higher-paying international school jobs. It's a big decision to make!
