    If you take and pass a CELTA course, you will get a certificate which will make it easier for you to find work teaching English.

    It is a very intensive course and you will find it hard work but you will also gain confidence and teaching knowhow.

    They prefer a first degree but it's not essential.

    I can't see that this would be a problem.

    It really depends on where you want to teach and at what level. In most places the basic requirements for entry level teaching positions are a degree plus a TESL/TEFL certificate - not necessarily a CELTA.

    As with any job, the more you have to offer in terms of qualifications and experience, the better your chances of landing a well paid job with opportunities for advancement. However unless your intention is to remain within the ESL industry and build a career for yourself in this field then you could quite happily opt for a basic TESL/TEFL Certificate to add to your degree.

    Celta takes about a month, if you do it full-time.
