Okay, so I’ve never taught English overseas. It is something we talked about, even something we planned on doing when we first arrived in Ecuador. But it just never happened.
So why feature this book? Well, it’s still an awesome idea. If you are planning on moving abroad, but not quite sure how to fund your move and your life then you should consider teaching English. And it’s a great option to fund your round-the-world travels too!
Teaching English abroad is a great way for people without a lot of money to head overseas, learn a new culture, experience personal growth, and make good money that can be put towards paying off student loans, or (even better) more traveling.
But how to go about doing it? A Google search brings up millions of website results that are most often junk sites, filled with Google ads, spam, outdated information, and sponsored ads for placement agencies that charge you to get a job.
