    So I've got an English degree and I'm currently doing my PGCE. I'm hoping to move to the US after a couple of years teaching in the UK but I'm unsure how eligible I'll be for a visa.

    What's my chance of being granted a USA visa for teaching English?

    Depends. I don't think English teachers are in high demand since it's more "skilled" labor they're after ( can this person do what a considerable % of American citizens cannot do? (E.g. Physics, Chemistry, History (especially European History))) and if you can secure a job already (is there a company that would be willing to sponsor a visa for this individual?)

    It's tough for sure. Do a lot of research. Your best chance is to get an organization to sponsor you, though that is really tough especially in professions which may be considered to be national only (though teaching isn't really one of them, e.g. high demand for native English teachers in Japan etc.)
