Dear Doc,

I'm currently employed in the hotel industry (F&B) and would like some advice on changing my career. I'm in my late 20's with a degree in Hotel Management and speak native English. The problem with my job, is that I'm finding it leaving me physically drained and tired.

I'm desperate to get into teaching but Im not sure what is the best way? I noticed that most places require TEFL and that there's also online course available. Doc, do you know whether online TEFL course are recognized in HK? Ideally I want to work at my current job while my studying for TEFL. Due to shift work it would be hard for me to attend TEFL taught in a classroom, therefore I'm just hoping that the online course is recognized...!
