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 its 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 A Google search brings up millions of website results that are most often junk sites, filled with Google ads, spam, outdated information, and sponsored ads for placement agencies that charge you to get a job. Our friend (and fellow travel blogger) Nomadic Matt created a book that can help you navigate getting a teaching job with up-to-date information in it.
This 101 page book includes:
- Information on what a TEFL degree is and if you need it.
- Information on other degrees like CELTA and TESOL.
- The types of teaching jobs you will find.
- The requirements for being an ESL teacher.
- Salary and benefit information.
- What to look for in your contract.
- Online job Resources.
And what separates this book from every other book or website out there is that Matt asked his teaching friends around the world and used his own experience to bring together on the ground information about the application process, job types, current teacher salaries, job conditions, cost of living, and visa processes for the following teaching destinations: Argentina, Belgium, China, Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Ukraine, Dubai, Japan, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Guatemala.
