In Response To: Best teaching experience? (Mike)

As Stephen points out, the field is no longer wide open to vanilla BA holders who happen to be native speakers with no related qualifications. This is a change from past decades. You are unlikely to find anything resembling 'best experiences' without qualifications.

You might want to head over to the Job Discussion board and inquire what minimum qualifications are required for countries that interest you, so that you can see how to maximize your chances of finding something reasonable.

In any case, like every other job in today's world, expect to pay some dues! The days when a native speaker was welcomed with open arms and few demands for qualifications are long over.....
