Truth of the matter is, I don't have a degree in anything. I have been through high school and technical schools. I have a lot of life experience, but I have never taught (besides a few religion classes when I was younger). I have a nagging feeling that I am under-qualified to even take a TEFL course. I am currently signed up to take one in Florence, Italy in March. I don't want to doubt my decision, it is a huge commitment. I have a very strong desire to immerse myself in other cultures, and I thought that teaching my native language would be rewarding. I guess no matter what, I am going to go through with it. I just want to know if not having a degree will hinder my chances of being successful.
