hi! there I'm new to Tefl and this forum
can you help?
Do i need a degree to work as a English teacher
in say Japan or Taiwan etc?
I'm currently working my way through an on-line
TEFL course.Would that be enough to actually teach?
Way back when, I know for a fact that there were people who doctored and photocopied degrees just to get a job. That was when the demand was way high and the joke was, "They'll take anybody as long as the body is still warm".
Now, don't get me wrong; I'm certainly not condoning such behavior.
I've seen some god awful language teachers with Masters and I've seen some very effective teachers who had but a high school education.
