Frequently Asked Questions


(1) Do I need a degree in English in order to teach English?

No. You will likely be teaching functional/conversational English and not Shakespeare or Academic English, so a degree in anything is absolutely fine. We can even arrange for you to obtain a degree in a fast-track timetable, along with your TESOL/TEFL certificate. The certificate is your teaching credential and indicates that you are qualified to teach English as a second language since the training focuses on pedagogical technique, ice breakers, and lesson planning.


(2) I have no experience in teaching. Will I have trouble finding a teaching position?

No. Your TESOL certification and understanding of the English language adequately prepares you with the necessary skills to teach ESL. Some recruiters even seek first time teachers since their thinking is that you haven't made mistakes or are not already "set in your ways" and thus open to learning and implementing the school philosophy.
