Good luck trying to find a job teaching English in Iceland — television has already done your job for you. A very high percentage of Icelanders speak English to various degrees of fluency. This is a country where intro level English teachers are truly not needed. Though I am sure that if you have advanced credentials — a masters or PHD in TEFL or lots of experience — you could land a job in a high school or university.
