    Hi there,
    I am 34 years old, a non graduate, from Scotland, UK, looking to earn some money teaching English as I travel.
    I have seen various sites offering TEFL courses for less than €100 and would like to know if these are indeed accept these qualifications: http://www.lovetefl.com/ (for example).
    I have also heard it is possible to teach English as a foreign language without any of these qualifications – TEFL, TESOL, for example. Is this true? + if so, could you give me some information on this please.
    Thanks for your help! I look forward to hearing from you
    John

    …although I mentioned in the title, I should tell you that I am currently in San Sebastian. Although I am always interested to hear any helpful tips you may have in other regions.
    Thanking you in advance for your help!

    Johnbhoy,
    You might get some classes in a small school with that type of cert but if you are planning on teaching for a few years I´d recommend one of the more famous and expensive ones like the Celta. If you end up down in Madrid try a company called Vaughan. They take on teachers without qualifications but you would have to do some training with them.

    If you don’t have a degree then you really need something to show prospective employers when it comes to teaching. Without a single certificate it will be hard.

    I would say that Spain could be quite difficult without a degree or cert and that you could only target the bottom of the school pile. Maybe Eastern Europe might be easier?

    This is an article on finding TEFL work without a degree which might help: http://goo.gl/AXxEc6
