I am considering teaching abroad for the first time, and have a few questions and would just like to hear as much first hand experience as possible. I am considering Costa Rica and Chile at the moment. I have bachelors degree in finance, no actual teaching experience but I have two years of coaching on my resume. OK, so a few questions:

1) Is a CELTA certification necessary? Is a TESL certification adequate? Do I even need a TESL?

2) How is the safety in Costa Rica? Compared to Chile if you have that experience.

3) Seems getting on the ground and hunting for a job is the best way?

4) I know little spanish but would definitely try to improve that before i left, how crucial is it to landing a job over there?

5) I am considering becoming a teacher in FL, would getting my teaching certificate benefit me in landing a job and negotiating pay?

Any extra tidbits of info you have would be extremely helpful. Thanks so much! feel free to PM me as well with anything.
