Without a doubt, a 60 hour TEFL is important if you are looking for a teaching job in China because it is a qualification you will require to get your working visa in China even if you’re a native and hold a BA degree. This is the first step to get a working visa. For those people who hold a BA in education a TEFL is not required to get their working visa.

An On line TEFL is acceptable and it is easy to get one. It takes you 2-3 days and you can apply it anywhere and anytime. Click here to get more details: http://teachingchina.net/tefl
