Re: Non native speaker teaching abroad
I would say it is not impossible to get a job as a non-native English speaker but it is certainly more difficult. My suggestions:
1. Get a CELTA rather than a TEFL. More widely recoginzed and respected.
2. It is easier to gain a position if they see you face-to-face and you are there to help with an immiediate teaching need. Once your foot is in the door, impress them and they will keep you.
