In Response To: Start teaching straight out of High School? (Gabriel)

Perhaps you should do some research about what TESL/TEFL employers want in a EFL teacher. If you go to Dave's "International Job Forum" you will see the majority of foreign EFL employers want their prospective teachers to have a minimum university Bachelors degree. This is a requirement for an entry visa to legally teach in most countries.

Plus, many foreign employers expect English language teaching experience and perhaps an English language teaching certificate, such as a CELTA.

Other good advice is for you to research a country that you may think you have a "fighting chance", research schools in that country and find out directly what EFL institutions expect of their prospective foreign teachers.

Volunteer teaching in Latin America may be an option but it is not what you want: a "teaching job".
