If you are thinking about English teaching you may be wondering "how the heck do I get started as an ESL teacher?" Well, you might fall into one of two categories:

The first is: "Hey! I can do that! I speak the language. English teaching is for me."

The second is: "Geez, English was my worst subject in school. How the heck can I teach something I was horrible at in school."

If English is your first language (or maybe it's not and you're just a wiz at it) and you have a desire to do something different, to help people, meet a lot of great folks from all over the world, to travel and work abroad teaching English as a Second Language just might be your cup of tea.

One thing that's important though--you really gotta like people. I think that is the one real important qualification to being an ESL teacher or really any kind of teacher.
