  QUALIFICATIONS FOR NON-NATIVE SPEAKER TEACHERS
"I have a question for you concerning getting a certificate of teaching English (in Asia or South America for instance). Since I am an English teacher (upper secondary school), although educated in Sweden I have the necessary teaching skills, and normally people hardly hear an accent when I am speaking. I assume I still have to take a test/course (or equivalent) in order to obtain a ESL/EFL-certificate, but I do not know how to go about it here in Sweden. "

EMPLOYER PROBLEM - WHERE TO GO?
Q.
I am in dispute with my employer over my terms of contract. What do you suggest would be the most effective action to take considering that I'm miles from home and require an exit visa.

A.
Probably the most satisfactory and amicable way to resolve the situation would be to try and work it out by talking calmly and politely with your employer while putting your case forward. Ideally a solution might be negotiated in this way. If this is not successful, I would advise you consult your local consulate or embassy. They will almost definitely not be able to resolve the situation but they should be able to advise you of your legal rights, but probably more importantly, what outcomes you can reasonably expect. However righteous you may feel your cause to be, I would suggest you do not take the law into your own hands - you may find yourself in very deep water indeed, given your circumstances.
