Teach Abroad

Teaching abroad is one of the most popular ways to live and work abroad. There are plenty of countries all over the world that are looking for native English speakers to teach students English as well as other subjects.

You do not need to be a licensed teacher, or even have a background in teaching or working with children, to teach English abroad. In fact, some countries just require you to be a native English speaker with a college degree. Typically, you are hired as a language assistant or teaching assistant to teach english abroad for these jobs.

However, if you are looking to be an actual teacher at an international school, there are plenty of opportunities out there too. Typically, these schools will require you to have experience teaching and a teaching license from your country.
