In Response To: M.B.A needs help becoming a TEFL teacher (April)

You certainly possess academic credentials very useful for TEFL employers who want ESL/EFL teachers to teach Business English.

If you read some of the recently posted request for advice on this site, you will read about some novice teachers put into a second language learning classroom with the teacher having no previous second language teaching training. It is not a pretty scenario, particularly for the poor teacher.

Most posters here will recommend you at least obtain a credible TEFL teaching certificate. At least that bit of training will provide you with a "feel" for the field and some comfort in the classroom.

If you really find teaching second language Business skills to your liking, you probably will want to obtain further academic training in the EFL field.
