All it takes is a degree and a TESOL certificate . Most schools will even reimburse your airfare!
Remember, these are from one source only. I can tell you there are hundreds of teaching jobs available.
Why not get started today? You could be teaching in one of these countries within a few weeks. Such is the demand that students are often hired even before they complete the TESOL course!
With a university degree and a TESOL Certificate, you can start applying to teach overseas immediately - and be prepared to move quickly. Many schools URGENTLY need teachers and they may want you there yesterday! Do a little research first and see what you can find about the school. Have them email you a contract so you can check it out. Ask me for a copy of my eBook Introduction to Teaching Overseas.
