New to TESL - A few Questions!Hey everyone,
I've just considered teaching English abroad with my girlfriend and I have a couple questions to ask. First, we both plan on getting a TESL certificate, but only I have a degree. I was wondering where people who have experience teaching abroad would recommend that we look for jobs? What are some of the more common places people go where degrees are not required for legal work?
We both also have EU passports, as she is holds a dual citizenship with France, and I with Italy. Does that help at all? Where in Europe can people typically find jobs, if anywhere, that don't require degrees. I have heard Prague thrown around.
I'm sure I'll remember some more questions soon,

2OP, we don't know where you are from, but assuming you are from somewhere non-EU, then yes having those extra passports does help; it gets you legal status to live and work int eh EU. If you wanted to work in Japan, they don't help much. Some countries care that your passport shows you to be a native speaker of English, and don't care a bit about your actual ability to teach.
ESLcafe.com indeed holds lots of info on where you do/don't need a degree to get a job.
