||Teaching without a degree
"Hi, my name is Jon and I live in Toronto, Canada. I am interested in
teaching english abroad and do not have a university degree. Is it
possible to teach abroad without a degree? Certain colleges in
Toronto offer TEFL certification programs and claim you can teach
abroad with this only. If this is true, do you have a preference in
the institution I have earned it with? What schools have the best
reputation? Is this considered when you hire someone? If you could
reply to my messege when you have time, i will be very grateful.
