thought I better clear things up
It must be they gave me a job?
It gets better, doesn't it :)
No I'm not on a break from uni, nor do I intend to ever go to uni or further my education in any way.
Now, why am I so surprised to learn that. Maybe you should give our old chum Chris Bradbury a ring, he might be willing to put some work your way :D
He's just looking to meet and shag as many young women as he can with this particular venture.
A thread entitled "Expats: Would you have moved to Poland if it was full of fat/ugly women?" is long overdue, lol.
No offence to the expat posters on here though, especially those who I respect, but you have to admit... this is the main reason a lot of these guys suddenly develop "an interest in Poland" :)
OP: Expecting to teach English with (a) no higher education and (b) poor grammar/spelling is laughable. As someone else said, it shows a lack of respect; it's a dreadful "colonial" attitude, implying that being British somehow makes you better than the natives, and they should be somehow be "grateful" for your presence. Those days are long gone. It's sad that someone your age has that attitude; you should know better. I imagine that you will soon be horrified to meet Poles with better written English than yours.
I have known a fair few excellent teachers of English with no degree, although it certainly is more unusual.
True, but if language teaching was all about "being a native speaker", we wouldn't need degrees in education/pedagogia. My most recent Polish ex had poor English, and wanted me to teach her. I agreed (to some extent), but explained that I could only teach her how to say/write things, not necessarily why
we write/say certain things - that's where teachers come in. I can teach my own professional speciality, but I'm not a teacher (I do have a "teaching qualification" though, but it doesn't mean I can teach anything else).
