Teaching Abroad

Teaching abroad is a good way to see the world. If you're from an English speaking country, are a native English speaker, can pass the photo test and are in the preferred age range for your chosen country, you can get there and 'see the world'.

However, there's one very serious reality to consider, and that is that teaching is a difficult job. Your salary will generally allow you to live comfortably (but not always), and depending on the type of school or company you work for, you may have enough time to see a number of different places.

But when you're teaching, you're working. It's possible that you'll be working and working and working, just like you would be in your own hometown.

Clever expats find different ways of circumventing the daily grind, but if you're teaching abroad, count on a full workload.
