Teaching English in Europe: An Overview

Travelling Europe is expensive, but native English speakers can fund an open-ended world trip through teaching. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL, ESL, EFL or half a dozen other acronyms) is a time-tested way to work and travel or set up as an expat. Although there is high demand for quality English language teaching throughout Europe, you’re more likely to get a job if you’re an EU citizen.

Teaching English in Asia: An Overview

It’s not that hard to become an English teacher overseas, especially in Asia. No place pays better or has a wider availability of work. In Asia, large populations, mandatory English requirements, and an innate desire to learn the language of business, means that those looking for work in Asia will find a buyer’s market. No matter what country you land in, as long as you keep your options open, you will find a job.

Teaching English in South Korea: An Interview with Travis

For the cash-strapped traveller, one of the best ways to see the world without going into extreme debt is by finding work overseas. Not only does it ease the financial burden of travel, it also allows a first-hand glimpse into daily life in a foreign context.

Travis is one such cash-strapped traveller. He is spending a year in South Korea, teaching English to a group of eleven and twelve year-old students and sharing his (often comical) observations of Korean culture on his blog.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).
