In Response To: TESOL certification online? (z)

As a US citizen, you're highly unlikely to get a job in the UK - just as in the US, they will hire their own citizens first and there are literally thousands of well-qualified UK citizens to teach English language. Ditto most of the European Union - there are visa issues that prevent US citizens from living/working here.
For entry level jobs for a US citizen, Asia is probably the best region to target - I think that your literature qualifications will also be more welcomed there than in many parts of the world (where a knowledge of literature isn't seen as an indication of aptitude for teaching language).
As for certification, the standard course that will be accepted everywhere is 120 hours on site including supervised teaching practice with real students.
