Can I Teach English Abroad Without Teaching Experience?

YES — Every year, more than 200,000 English speakers get jobs teaching English abroad, and more than 90% have no prior teaching experience and no degree in education, or even English.  In fact, up to 20% of them don’t even possess a four-year college degree!  With up to 1 billion people taking some form of English class each year, the demand for native or fluent speakers to work as English teachers is virtually insatiable. From summer camps and kindergartens to public schools, language institutes and corporate training, English speakers with no prior background in professional English teaching are employed in more than 100 countries around the world.
