In Response To: A little advice. (james)

Try to get some experience while doing your degree. See if you can do a language exchange with the international student's federation. See if there are events for international students on-campus (often there are movie nights etc.). Go and meet people.

Do some sort of TESOL certificate before you start teaching. And if you decide you want to keep at it, you should do a more-substantial qualification after at least a couple of years experience. (i.e. a masters degree in TESOL / Applied Linguistics).

How much money you need to bring with you depends on where you are going, the cost of living and the start-up costs. And, of course, how much money you spend (do you go out to bars a lot? Do you buy a lot of stuff? etc).
