Hello Smile
As a non-native TEFL-er wannabe, which countries should I focus on in terms of employment?
Salary wise, breaking even is fine, as I'm more interested in immersing myself in foreign cultures. I have a (non-related) undergraduate degree and CELTA.

I'd appreciate any advice/ suggestions. Thank you Smile

If you have experience I'd say apply for the British Council in countries where they don't have local laws that discriminate against non-native teachers. E.g. Hong Kong. The BC likes to show how diverse it is when given the chance so you might have an edge.

What's your nationality? Also, do you have any teaching experience?

The easiest answer is 'where you can get a legal work permit.' This is often more closely related to your country of origin than to your qualifications. Where are you from?

Thanks for the suggestion Bograt Smile
Unfortunately, I have no experience yet.

Hi Nomad Soul Smile
No teaching experience yet. I'm from Malaysia.


Hi Spiral78 Smile
Thank you for your feedbacK. Yes, I suppose I should start looking up info on work permits.
