Finding work as an ESL / EFL Teacher

Life as an ESL / EFL Teacher

One of the great things about being an English teacher, especially if you teach English as a second language, is that it can be your passport to a new life. Unlike people in most professions, forced to follow the work, the ever-growing international demand for good English teachers means that your qualifications allow you to choose where you work and live. Fancy a few years living and working in Asia? There is a queue of employers waiting to help you achieve your goals. Or maybe you’d prefer South America, Europe, the Middle East or perhaps Africa?  The salaries might not be comparable, but there are plenty of jobs available.

Why Teach?

There are probably as many reasons for becoming a teacher as there are teachers in the world, but many teachers say that they chose the profession because they love the sense of achievement and having the ability to make a difference, being able to use their creativity, the love of their subject, be it English or Art, plus of course the fun of working with youngsters. The ability to travel is rarely mentioned, mostly because the majority of people entering teaching spend a large part of their careers working at a single school. Passports don’t enter the equation. However, that’s not true for English teachers; ESL Teachers to be more precise. Are you interested in a teaching job that allows you to travel the world?
