  TEFL fall back position
"I'm doing a PhD in Biochemistry at a UK university and I intend to leave the UK with my French girlfriend when we finish our studies. I would like to know whether it would be possible/appropriate to do a TEFL course as a 'fall back' option, so that if one or neither of us is able to obtain a postdoctoral position there would still be the option of teaching english. Also, would it be possible to combine the TEFL qualification with a life sciences PhD? "

QUALIFIED, LOOKING FOR EXPERIENCE
Q.
I am a TESOL accredited teacher (founder of NALATIE), authorized by both the Canadian and American government. I have also just obtained my Bachelor of Arts from the Dept. of English from a well known University in Montreal, Canada. I will also be undergoing a course soon on how to teach TOEFL. I have some experience privately tutoring and teaching ESL, but seek to cultivate and expand my experience. My question is this: Are there many opportunities to go abroad and do some kind of a teaching internship, some kind of teacher training, or teacher's aide program, preferably within South or Central America? I am primarily looking for experience right now. Considering my above mentioned credentials, could you give me some advice and help? It would be so greatly appreciated. A.

A.
With your qualifications and experience you should be a welcome applicant for overseas voluntary organisations which, in turn, should be able to provide you with the teaching experience you are looking for. Organisations such as the Peace Corps www.peacecorps.gov; Global Volunteers www.globalvolunteers.org and Voluntary Service Overseas(VSO) www.vso.org.uk may well be interested in employing you.
