how can i take online TEFL/TESOL exam to get the certificate?

I live in Bosnia and I have a BA in English language and literature. Since my diploma is basically worth nothing in the world and I unfortunately cannon find a job in my country, I have decided to try to take the TEFL exam. However, I cannot take it in Bosnia and I cannot afford to go to another country and take the course. It seems like the only solution is to take the exam online. So my question is, how can I do that? I'm worried about possible scams, because I really cannot afford to throw money away :) As for my work experience, I have spent a year working at Cambridge Center in my city where I have taken the TKT exam, passed it of course. At the moment I am working at another school and preparing students for TEOFL. Is this the kind of experience that can help in the future when I apply for jobs abroad?

So, if someone has some experience in taking the exam online I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Hey,

    You can take an online course, which gives you the qualifications to be able to teach abroad. Some courses, such as i-to-i's have different modules in which you need to do reading and some quizzes. Then you submit an assignment which is marked by on of our tutors, located across the world.

    As you are working at a school already, you already have the practical experience that a classroom course would give you. So doing an online course will give you all the skills you need to be able to teach English as a foreign language. To get more information on the course you could do, you may want to take a look here- http://www.onlinetefl.com/tefl-course

    You can also download your free guide to teaching abroad here: http://www.onlinetefl.com/contact-tefl-team/tefl-e... This will give you lots of information on the courses available to you, where you could teach and how to find the best TEFL jobs.

    Hope this helps!

    You can take a TEFL course online - see http://icalweb.com for example. If you are working in a school some will allow you to submit video lessons to get observed teaching practice.

    Just take a online course, it is much cheaper and does not require you to attend any institution physically. The certificate is going to be shipped to your home. Once you receive it you are good to go anywhere, of course you will need a visa.

    no, there aren't. you need to take either the Cambridge CELTA or the Trinity equivalent. online certs are a not considered reputable b/c you won't get any teacher time with feedback.

    I know TOEFL has the iBT, Cambridge might have something as well. I would contact the nearest centre and ask.
