    Tefl or Tesol?

    My boyfriend and I are planning to move to HK. I am looking into teaching English . Does Anyone have experience with either TEFL or TESOL? Which is better to take? And how hard is it to find work? BTW I can speak a little Cantonese and Mandarin as well.

    What kind of "teaching English" are you looking at? Joining the Government's NET scheme and working at a primary/secondary school, i.e. a qualified teacher? Or joining one of the many tutorial/languages centres, which isn't too dodgy?

    What would be better between TEFL and TESOL for either a tutorial centre or English centre?

    Most likely through a language center.
