Does Thailand require it?

I know it's not the same, but when I taught in Japan, I didn't need to be TESL/TEFL certified.

Good luck!

If you're not stuck on a particular location in Asia, check out the JET programme - that's what I did back in 1999-2000 in Japan. Very well-run program, great experience. However, it does take a number of months after application before you actually get there.

If that doesn't work for you, try contacting some private schools directly - sometimes it's easier to get into a private school as they aren't always subject to all the Ministry of Education guidelines & rules etc. that the public schools are.

I forget the site but just google Thailand TEFL course. I know many people who teach or taught english here. also once you get here there are many places who offer the cert. It's cheap too.

If you have a degree and tefl you can get a job anywhere.
If you have nothing then you need to look at countries that will take anyone they can get.
Indonesia, I know, are going loopy to get people. I keep getting offered work and I'm a Yorkshire lad.
How the hell can I teach English when I can't even speak it?

Thailand is the same way. They really NEED people who can speak english. Its very different from Malaysia/Singapore/Philippines where the people are highly trained in english.

Good luck
