I am in my 40's, have a bachelor's degree (nothing to do with teaching/language) and have never taught before. I am considering a CELTA course in Chicago, where I live. Is it realistic to think that I would be able to: 1) learn enough through the CELTA course to be able to teach and 2) be able to get a job with just those qualifications?
I am interested in South America (even though I know the pay is horrible), Turkey or Eastern Europe.
Any advice you can give is much appreciated!
