    Teach English in these Countries Even without a Degree

    Employers are now placing more and more emphasis on real world experience. This is in part because theory without practice can go only so far, but it is also indicative of a broader mindset on the part of recruiters.

    For some, the idea of going to university and obtaining a degree feels like a compulsory step on the journey of life. However, in recent times it has become apparent that there are many roads to success, and not all of them involve a classic route through academia.

    In fact, employers are now placing more and more emphasis on real world experience. This is in part because theory without practice can go only so far, but it is also indicative of a broader mindset on the part of recruiters.

    This is especially true in the world of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). This sphere used to rely heavily on a traditional education to determine the ideal candidate for the job, but now an applicant without a formal degree has just as much of a chance of landing a great position as their university-trained rivals.

    What’s more, the field of TEFL is one where a teacher can ply their trade across the globe, and there are several countries for whom a degree is not mandatory. Below, some of these countries will be listed, alongside some of the most essential reasons why these places should be near the top of any new TEFL teacher’s list.

    Cambodia

    Located at the Eastern side of the massive Asian continent, the nation of Cambodia has much to offer a prospective TEFL educator. To learn more specifically about how to Teach English in South Korea, Cambodia, or indeed anywhere in Eastern Asia, it is worth doing some research about the country and the many ways in which it has grown in recent years.

    For one thing, there is such an array of free time activities to do there, from summer sunbathing at one of Cambodia’s many relaxing beaches, to visiting an historic site such as Angkor Wat in the mountainous regions. Additionally, Cambodia has a real balance between big city life and a more rural approach. As a result, this really is a wonderful place to be for any travel enthusiast.

    In terms of TEFL, there are opportunities galore to gain real world teaching experience across the nation, and to work with pretty much any age group. This might make the decision to move East that bit easier for any novice TEFL instructor who is unsure of where to go first.

    India

    At the heart of Asia lies the large and well-known nation of India. With millions invested in local infrastructure in recent years, and more economic growth set to be on the way, India can be a fast track for the new TEFL tutor to make huge strides in their early years of teaching the subject.

    Although the summers are usually hot, this is the time of year most TEFL teachers have off for holidays, so the majority of the teaching year takes place in more reasonable temperatures. Indeed, an evening visit to the New Delhi or Mumbai in the wintertime might just require a jacket or sweater.

    Beyond that, most schools in this country are privately run, meaning that class sizes are typically well controlled, a blessing for most new TEFL instructors. On top of that, the early starts also mean an early finish to the work day, with a 2pm afternoon finish at some schools leaving plenty of time for free time activities in the rest of the day.

    Colombia

    At the northern edge of the South American landscape, Colombia has a long and fascinating history that has so much to offer the historical buff or more casual tourist. Even though the global rankings for English have Colombia some way off the top, there is a growing acceptance that things need to improve, and many projects are underway to uplevel the overall English language competence of Colombian citizens.

    This is fantastic news for the new TEFL educator, who will be welcomed to Colombia safe in the knowledge that there are steps underway to increase the performance in this realm. Additionally, there are an abundance of bilingual programs now in place, from principal cities such as Bogota and Medellin, all the way to rural countryside villages gaining better and better internet access all the time.

    There is also a deep and rich cultural heritage throughout Colombia, which really has to be seen to be believed. Furthermore, the people are friendly and always willing to share their stories and experiences with others, making this an appealing destination for the social TEFL teacher to think about. 

    Spain

    In spite of the fact that rules and regulations have changed dramatically in recent years, it is still possible to find an exciting and interesting opportunity to work in Europe by looking in the right places. For instance, there are many areas of Spain where it is still possible to find a job as a TEFL expert, even without a university degree.

    However, as with much of the rest of mainland Europe, it is still advantageous to go about obtaining a reliable TEFL certification before setting out to try and get work. For one thing, employers are far more likely to prioritise a candidate who has gone the extra mile and become TEFL certified.

    Also, the new TEFL teacher will be equipped with a toolkit of knowledge ideally suited to the classroom, from the latest vocabulary trends to the classic grammar rules. Last but by no means least, these courses are run and taught by experienced professionals, who have been working in the area for a number of years, and are always happy to answer any questions they may receive.

    So, no matter whether the TEFL lesson is about the latest pop culture trends, or the difference between the gerund and the infinitive, the qualification does enable the TEFL tutor to respond and teach their new TEFL classes with the confidence they need.
