Indonesia. China no degree.

Unread postby george » 24 Feb 2010, 07:17

I have been told that I can teach English In Indonesia, or China. With no degree.
I have experience teaching English in Korea for over 15 years now.
I have a business visa and have been doing private work.
I've worked in schools. Universities. Companies and in peoples homes.
Ages ranging fronm 7 yr olds to businessmen.

I also taught English for one year in Greece and 3 years in Portugal before that.

Is it possible for me to find this work legaly and how ?
Also can I obtain a TEFL certificate while working there ?
Any advice would be appreciated. As I'd like to move on very soon.

You can work in parts of China and Taiwan without a degree and also in some other Asian countries. To get work you really need to be there in person as most schools advertising online will ask for the normal full qualifications (i.e. degree + tefl cert).

In China many of the non-degree jobs tend to be in the smaller cities and out of town.

As for obtaining a TEFL certificate while you are there, you can do it online.

China is a big place. Who in thier right mind would wander off into a country that size. with no local language ability. Thanks for the help. Bu More specific info is needed. ie. Locality. Town. Names of some schools etc. Further advice would be useful.

People with a sense of adventure and a positive outlook. You could learn a lot, George.

It seems rather odd that you have 15 years of teaching experience in Korea, yet no degree or TEFL cert! How can this be? Your English is below par for a teacher, that's for sure...
