I have just completed my TEFL and i am really looking to work in thailand/vietnam/cambodia.
I've looked on the usual job websites but most r requesting a degree.
Has anybody done teaching work in the above places without a degree, any contacts you could give me or is there better countries to do this type of work.
Thanks for your help!!!!!

Thailand has really cracked down on teachers that do not have all the required documents. Cambodia is not as strict. When I was there a few years ago, teachers were working w/o degrees. I will e-mail my friends in Phnom Penh and see if that is still the case.
Teaching is getting harder in Thailand.
My friend, a Phd. with decades of teaching experience, was jerked around when working on his visa. The Uni didn't want to help very much.
You might imagine how much help a simple TEFL certificate will garner.
What do we not understand?
That's what i thought. I'm going to go over to Thailand for 2/3 months in October and see if i can get any contacts/job while i'm there and if not i might try China as i know they are very short on native English Speakers. I just wanted to see if anybody had any contacts or experience in this.
