Teach Your Way to Exotic Locations

There can be no greater option for people to travel the world and experience new cultures and communities than to teach English as a foreign language.

Like it or not the international business world now runs almost exclusively in English. Travellers communicate with local people in English, and in most countries that people are likely to visit the locals would cite English as the language they would most like to learn.

Business opportunities can be hard to come by in foreign lands. Not everyone is cut out to become an international trader or business guru. There's always the option of seeking career help, and for some that might pay great dividends.However for those people fortunate enough to have been born into countries with English as their native language the future is looking bright. The population of the world is only going one way, and as many teachers as there are scattered around the globe teaching English right now there must be a need for at least ten more.

There are many ways to approach this idea. Each has its own merits and potential downfalls. Some people might feel nervous about simply arriving in a new and strange place to look for a job. Those people might find that searching for career development help online is a good option. They might feel most comfortable knowing that a job is ready and waiting for them in their chosen destination. For others, perhaps more experienced part of the thrill might be in arriving in that new place with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the sense of adventure in their hearts. Neither is right or wrong. In this world of constant movement and transience there can be no 'right way' of doing things, and nobody can tell you that there is.

The key lies in each person doing things in a way that feels comfortable for them. If they want to take a 3 day intensive TEFL course and simply set off then there's nothing to stop them except their own fears and expectations. The sense of adventure and achievement will be reward in themselves. Those that are certain that this is the lifestyle for them might look for a certain amount of career help to best decide how to approach the issue. This is no less adventurous in its own right — but not all of us can claim to know beforehand that this is definitely the path for us.

Nobody will claim that teaching English is going to be the key to unimaginable riches, but they are wrong. The true riches of the world lie in the people you can meet and the places you can see. From the cool temperatures of the tea plantations in Malaysia to the thin air and baking sun of the high Andes this blue planet offers more options and destinations than most of us can ever imagine. You might never become a millionaire as a transient teacher, but the experiences you will have cannot be bought for any money. They are priceless.
