In Response To: Certification requirements (Kristen)

Competitively, if you want to be on the same level as other credible competitive EFL teachers, you will require an undergraduate Bachelor's degree. An EFL/ESL certificate will also be an asset for some employers.

Short answer, yes, it will be harder for you to succeed without the degree.

And, no, you do not need a "a bachelorettes degree" (I assume you mean a university Bachelor's degree)to obtain an ESL certificate.

Though, you do need a Bachelor's degree and some ESL certification to obtain a teaching license to legally teach in some geographic areas.

In your research, pick a country you want to teach in and browse Dave's International Board to see what prospective EFL employers seek in a potential EFL teacher.
