1. We take risks

Life is short. We're taking chances.

2. We face our fears

There are two kinds of fears in life: real fear and imaginary or fear that is in your memory. Real fear will save your life - it's your friend. An imaginary fear is like that fear of the little red man with horns and a pitchfork.

3. We like tongue twisters

We like to come up with creative tongue twisters like: religion really rhymes with ridiculous righteous rubbish.

4. We are not conventional

If there is a better way than the conventional way then we do it.

5. We can change

We can grow and continue to learn because our brains are plastic. People may have limitations, but their biggest limitation is in their minds.

6. We can change the world

We are not helpless. One by one we can help change the world.

7. We are not followers

We don't want to be like everyone else.

8. We're on our own path

We often prefer the seldom traveled path or better yet blazing our own trail.

9. We like simplicity

Less is often more.

10. We're honest

We practice honesty, transparency and authenticity.

11. We're open

We are open to new experiences. We like fun and adventure.

12. Failure is one of our teachers

Failure is a good teacher. Failure is part of succeeding. We may not welcome it, but whatever we dream of doing, we do it. We won't always win, but even if we fail then we know, experienced it and we learned. Failure leads to success.

I have completed the course and have my certificate. You also said I would receive a strong formal letter. Please advise.

@John You don't actually need a certificate to teach in Korea. Read the article up and to the right (in the sidebar) about "qualifications". Courses are separate you can't mismatch them to add up the hours.

Schools can have different preferences/requirements. You can't expect to meet every schools expectations. And most schools prefer experience over any certificate.

Most teachers I met in Korea did not have certificates. It's usually an added bonus and it will help you in the classroom.

I see so many sites offering similar type of courses at different price, some offer 120 hour course.
I live in Korea now. Is 60 hour course sufficient to reach at hakwon ( private English tutor school)?
If 120 hour course is a requirement, can I take additional 60 some where else? I just don't want to run into a situation where an institution may require more then 60 hours.
Please advice

@D No, there is no hard copy. What you receive is a large high quality image with instructions on how to professionally print it out. You can do this from anywhere in the world.

Can you mail the TEFL certificate to China?
#18 Ian 2013-11-14 04:48
@Isaac It depends on the school, the country and some other factors, but most of the time yes. Read the article about qualifications and requirements.
#17 Isaac 2013-11-14 02:11
Would I need a degree to be considered by any recruiting authority for a teaching position in addition to this TEFL qualification?
