Is a TEFL Certificate Necessary?
Although there was a time when simply being able to speak English was enough to land a job as an EFL teacher, those days are largely assigned to the past. In today’s world, most employers expect their teachers to have had some level of real instruction in how to actually teach the language in the classroom. If you do find an employer who is willing to hire you without any qualifications, the chances are that the pay and conditions are likely to be far from great.

Is Teaching Experience Necessary?
While a TEFL certificate is largely seen as a requirement to teach English, experience in the classroom is generally not necessary. Due to a huge demand for teachers in many areas, employers are more than happy to take on first-time teachers who have completed an internationally recognized TEFL qualification.
