    Yes WJ, I wanted to ask similar questions. Somehow, as soon as I read the opening of your post here and saw that you were in Korea, my mind said, I bet he does what I was hoping to do :lol:

    Do thy call it ESL there or EFL? I found all the acronymns a little boggling at first as I'd always understood ESL = English as a Second Language. Then I began investigating studies and was told it's TESOL = Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and/or TEFL = Teaching English as a Foreign Language when teaching in a country where English is not the native tongue. Just curious about that from someone who likely studied elsewhere and has been working in the field.

    I don't have a degree and learned a little late in the game that my simple tutoring certificate was not gonna crash open a lot of doors around the world and that most countries (Korea in particular) would require me to have a degree just to even be considered for work as working visas are not available to foreigners without a minimum bachelor degree. This represents a pretty huge time and money investment for me but I'm willing to pursue it if the payoff justifies it. I can use a degree in my current field too so it's looking like something I'm going to go after in the fall of this year. Anyways, my main question would be this... Does it appear to you that the demand for ESL instructors either in Korea or internationally is sufficient that, so long as they were skilled, someone new to the field would have little trouble finding consistent employment over the coming years?

    Thanks and welcome to the forum. I really like band #5 :lol:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Right so! As for ESL, EFL, TESOL, TEFL, they all basically mean the exact same thing. TESOL is sometimes used to specifically refer to a Cambridge language exam that is sort of the international measuring stick, but even then, sometimes it just means English lessons.

    The international demand is strong. It has flagged over the last year, largely due to global economic issues. I would expect it to remain so for the forseeable future, given that English is the accepted lingua franca, so almost every country needs it, to some extent. Many places are striving to make English education more professional though, which increases the amount of teaching qualifications.

    Some places require more qualifications than others - Korea expects a degree (university or college) and that's it, whereas somewhere like Dubai expects a bachelor's, a teaching degree (either B.Ed or TEFL/CELTA diploma), and previous experience. I ended up in Korea because I had a BA and a TEFL, but no experience. (...and I'm in my third year of teaching here, so now I have that too.) However, I didn't come here because I aimed to make teaching English a long-term career choice. I just wanted to shake things up in my life, move abroad and see more of the world, and teaching English seemed like a good way to do that. So I took a TEFL course (lasted a term, basically), and off I went. (So to answer cycosurgeon, I guess it was a premeditated pack up and go. :lol: )

    Welcome :heavydrink: Are you guys going to the NW gig in LA before the cruise?


    Hopefully! We still have to set our plans straight, since we arrive in Fort Lauderdale in the morning of Jan. 21st, and I think it's a bit far far from Miami. We'll check how much it would cost us to take a cab on both days to join you all in the multiple pre-cruise events, but I'm pretty sure we'll be there on the 22nd! :cheers:

    I'm flying into Ft. Lauderdale too. Did it before the last cruise. Assuming you are staying in Miami each night, I recommend taking a shared van. They will bring you to anywhere in Miami or South Beach. They'll also pick you up after the cruise and bring you to the airport too.

    Cabs from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami are extremely expensive.

    Mmm, didn't about that option, we'll have to consider it too! I know cabs are pretty expensive since it appears to be quite a long run (I have no idea of how long it will take us to get there), but the good news and that we're 5 peeps in the cab (hopefully there are some mini-van cabs...), so we'll cut it between each of us. I'll bookmark the site you posted Mooyagi, it might come in handy, thanks! :beerwink:

    Are you staying in Ft. Lauderdale? You gotta stay in Miami! That's where all the action is going to be. If not, you can also look into renting a car/van. May be cheaper in the long run.

    Well my uncle lets us stay in his empty house in Ft. Lauderdale, so it's an advantage for us to stay there I guess.

    How long is a Ft. Lauderdale-Miami ride, approximately?

    Can't remember but with the shared van, which made stops it was about 45 minutes from the airport to the hotel. I believe it's a bit over 20 miles away.

    Staying in an empty house sounds like a sweet deal! The savings doing that over a hotel may offset the cost of taking a cab.

    I try to play ice hockey and the result is: fibular and tibia fracture on my left leg...
    My first thought was: Damn, what about the cruise ?! but the doctor says i have to exercise physically every day, so hopefully it won`t be problem.
    So if you see me at the pre party and onbroad - be careful , handle with care and bring this guy a beer because i cant`t dance - only drink :lol:

    Ouch... but hey, what do you need your legs for, especially on this festival? Definitely not for relaxing on sun deck or drinking beer (I guess the most elementary things to do) - and don't worry, when I see a poor soul on crutches at the pre party I'll bring some beer! :beerwink:

    Welcome :heavydrink: Are you guys going to the NW gig in LA before the cruise?

    Baileydawn and I were going to go, but the money wasn't there. As sad as I am that I will miss it, it was LA or 70k, and the choice was obvious. We'll probably make up for it by stalking Nightwish on the ship.

    If someone up and gives us a few thousand dollars this week, we'll see you there! If not... tell us how it was when we meet onboard!

    No! Don't stop, I was merely poking fun at your use of the word 'restrain'. It's not wrong at all, but people (creepers) can interpret it in different (naughty) ways. :P
