The path to becoming an English teacher isn’t difficult or long. Most important, is that you enjoy and have the patience to teach; this will give you confidence and control of the classroom.
English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers are auxiliary to the education process, focusing on listening comprehension and speech; there is no need for a full English linguist education degree.
All native or near-native English speakers aged over 20 years old with a bachelor degree and a TESOL/TEFL certification are welcome to be an ESL teacher in most schools.
