Job placement in [Busan, South Korea] is extremely competitive, and without the UT CELTA I would not have had this opportunity. I would definitely recommend learning from the Austin, TX CELTA center. The cost and effort of the CELTA was the best choice I made when I chose to teach English abroad.Erica Zielinski, UT CELTA 2018
