What Are the Basic Requirements for Teaching English in Spain?

By Paige Lee

1.  NOT a requirement – Four-year college degree!

First, let’s start with what you don’t need to teach English in Spain, a completed 4-year college degree. Demand for English language education among Spaniards is robust and a native English speaker is the ideal educator for the world’s 2nd language. Therefore, it’s common for language schools or families looking to hire tutors based on the fact that they are a native speaker with a TEFL certification and not to prioritize a 4-year degree. Great news for the 1/4 of ITA’s certified teachers looking to live abroad without having completed their 4-year degree!

How Can I Teach English in China without a Degree?

By Havvah Holl

Teachers looking to move abroad will soon become familiar with China’s massive job market for TEFL teachers. With an almost absurdly large number of students who want to learn English, China is constantly hiring teachers, and offering great benefits to entice teachers to make the move. This demand gives China the unique distinction of being a country with a high savings potential, whether or not you have a university degree. It is key to understand the issue of visas, and that those without a degree may need to be more persistent and flexible in their job search.  Also, holding citizenship from a native English-speaking country, and getting a TEFL certification can both be important in most cases.
