||MA SOUND INVESTMENT?
"Is getting a TESOL MA worth the time and money? I'm British, presentable, nearly fifty with a BA, TESOL Cert, a tax-inspector background and three years teaching experience in China and Taiwan. I like my present post but I'd really rather be working (for a living wage!) in the UK or Germany or, if still in Taiwan, enjoying steadier hours and paid holidays teaching adults or tertiary students. Would anyone care to speculate: by approximately how much will my chances of securing a steady job be improved by spending a year and much of my savings on a year at University? Bear in mind that, for what it would cost me, I could cover unpaid annual holidays from the present job for the next decade or so. "
