I am a newly certified teacher here in the USA for English Language Arts for grades 6-12 and will be graduating with my Master of Arts in Teaching in mid June.
A friend of mine with similar credentials and I are planning to take a trip to Taiwan and look for teaching jobs. Neither of us have TEFL certification, but I would think that our Master’s degrees and teaching licences make up for that.
Will we need to get our TEFL certification?
I also spoke to a recruiter from the International TEFL Academy who said that Taiwan doesn’t hire very much in-person and mostly hires via Skype now. Is this true?
With my friend and my teaching credentials, will we likely be able to find a decent job if we have enough money to stay for 1-2 months without seeking TEFL certification?
Thanks for any help.
