In Response To: Re: Teaching ESL (nomad soul)

You can try a few job adverts here or on tefl. com or via google to find other sites and see whether they mention age limits. Many do, but many schools also prefer older-looking teachers as they feel they are more 'respectable'.
Indeed some visa rules preclude older people.
The country-specific forums mentioned before can also help with information on that.

Once you know where you might teach, then look at what qualifications they require.

If you are looking for a yea or two of overseas fun, then you probably want the lowest/chea-pest qualification. But if you want to do the job longer, or short-term with a level of professional competency, you'll likely need a benchmark-standard 120-hour cert with assessed practical teaching experience, so that would be a CELTA, Trinity CertTESOL, SITCert TESOL or something with similar criteria run by a properly-accredited university.
