teaching English overseas

Im about to begin a TEFL course as I would like to be an English teacher as my profession. My passion for this job was caused by a trip I went on with my high school friends from Salamanca. Twenty of us did one of the cursos ingles Nueva York in the USA and more or less everybody has decided to continue learning Enlish, it really was a wonderful experience! My TEFL course will be in Oxford but I hope to be able to see a little more of Europe before I take on a permanent job I have bought a Eurostar ticket and during the weekends will take every opportunity to see Europe. We explored America so much during my time in New York, I feel terrible for not seeing what is on my doorstep! I hope to be working as a Spanish teacher, alongside the English teaching, and think my final destination will be France (my family is French and so I am fluent already). Please, if anyone has any tips for must-see cities, tell me! Once I begin work and dedicate myself to a house and job, I will be unable to travel so much so I want to take every opportunity NOW! Seeing new places at this stage in my career would be good for me as one never knows, I may decide to settle there to do the teaching!

English teachers?

I think teaching english in several places in asia like China, Japan and Korea can be a very good idea for those who wish to enjoy some travel, while getting a very good teaching job, and some regular pay.

I've known lots of people here from Miami, mostly my friends who opted teaching abroad than staying here because they find teaching a very noble profession.. I believe it's a very good thing to do.

I agree. I have a friend who taught English in France for a few years and said it was the best thing he ever did.

How long does it take to finish a TEFL course? Also, if you happen to teach in one, how long would the job take (like is it only a few months? a whole year?).

When you travel to Vietnam, you can teach and earn for your trips in Vietnam. It's easy to become an English teacher here.

True. I heard Koreans are also looking for English teachers. The job seems to be popular in Southeast Asia.

Good day Julianne, English teacher as profession is a remarkable and wonderful experience in life. Especially if you travel on the certain place with the use of 'Cruceros Baltico' , this is really a greatest holiday ever!

Just like my cousin went on an internship abroad Italy, for a way longer stay. She went to Florence for around 5 months, to build up some work experience. Because she always wanted to improve her Spanish after she finished her studies and decided to work in one of those 'hoteles en Segovia', in Spain. When she came back, she told me how great to study and work abroad.
