My answer to: Can you teach with just a TEFL?

Can you teach with just a TEFL?

Thanks for the A2A, Laura.


The short answer: You can teach with absolutely no credentials.

The long answer will depend on where you want to teach, what you are teaching, who you are, what you look like, and a myriad variables.

I have written several post addressing the details of this question:

Enna Morgan’s answer to Is it true that a Caucasian person is paid twice the salary of an Asian person for teaching English in Vietnam?

Enna Morgan’s answer to What is it like teaching English in China?

Enna Morgan’s answer to I would love to teach English in India next year. What are the qualifications I need and how do I apply?

The first one may be the best for you, the others are equally informative. If you have specific questions that are not addressed in those, I would be happy to see if I can shed some more light…..
