Answer:

For individuals seeking work teaching English outside of the United States, it is necessary to research the specific requirements of the country that you are planning to teach in. By and large, most countries will require that foreign English teachers hold bachelor's degrees. For many countries this is necessary in order to ensure that teachers are able to obtain a work visa. That said, some countries may allow individuals who hold an associate degree the chance to teach abroad. In addition, many countries will require teaching certification, such as the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification. These programs ensure that future teachers have the skills needed to work with students and manage a classroom.
