Hi, I've recently finished a first degree and the idea of teaching English abroad for a while appeals to me, I have some questions about it:
1. I'm interested in teaching in developing countries, maybe in South America - will I need a full 4 week intensive TEFL course or would one of the shorter internet ones like the i-to-i do? I'm probably not going to make a career out of it but just teach for a few months/a couple of years while travelling and I'd like to avoid excessive expense.
2. My degree is in Psychology not language studies, will this hinder looking for a job?
3. Can people recommend good countries in the South/Central America region? I'll need a paid position, but just bringing in enough to keep me in living expenses and travel money. Particularly, does anyone know what demand for TEFL teachers is like in the French speaking areas, as I'd quite like the chance to brush up my rusty French?
