Out of the many travel jobs out there, teaching English as a second language (ESL) can be one of the most rewarding. Although prerequisites vary between countries and agencies, opportunities to work with children, adults, college students and even the mentally disabled are readily available.
Proper Schooling: Having a Bachelor’s degree greatly helps your chances of landing a teaching job abroad, but each country requires different things, such as a Master’s with TESL certification.
Finding Work: With help from communities such as Dave’s ESL Café, finding work anywhere in the world is only a few clicks away.
Where to Teach: When choosing where to go, don’t be afraid to be bold, but also choose a part of the world that you’re comfortable and somewhat familiar with.
