"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience." - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120

Have you ever wondered how you could possibly use your TEFL certificate? Most people only think of using it as something to show to an employer. But here are a few more uses you probably never thought of.

1. Be proud and make a crowntefl certificate crown

You earned it. Be proud and show your new certification off by wearing it on your head.

2. Eat on it

3. Use it as a medicine

Just keep in mind that wherever you try to use it as a medicine probably has different laws than where you live now. So you may end up in jail. Asia is not a very tolerant place when it comes to marijuana. Consider moving to Colorado, Washington, or maybe even Holland.

4. Cool down with it

Use your TEFL certificate as a fan

It's hot in the summertime in Asia. Use it to cool down.

5. Fly to Asia with it

This is a slightly more subtle way of using it to find a job. It would work great to look for privates, jobs, dates, etc. This is the great thing about a digital file. You can make it any size you want. This small business card sized certificate would pack a strong punch.

9. Use at as a dart board
