work overseas

Teaching English is a popular method of earning money abroad in order to help fund your travels, as well as opening exciting opportunities to live and work abroad for extended periods of time and start a new unexpected career (trust me, lots do!).

I’ve fallen into teaching English a few times, mostly to help fund my travels, and although it’s not made me rich (I don’t think many people have got rich from teaching English come to think of it), it certainly did its job of extending my travels and keeping my abroad and fed.

** Note: I used to recommend Nomadic Matt’s book in this post but he has since removed it from sale and no longer supports it, so you will have to find an alternative now. I have removed links from this page to it for that reason too so if something doesn’t make sense that is why.****

To really get full details of how to do this, I recommend Nomadic Matt‘s book ‘How to Teach English Overseas’, not only does this cover the basics, but it has extensive details on some of the more popular destinations including insights from different and excellent people who’ve taught in each part of the world, including me, I helped contribute towards the teaching in Japan section, some more of my experiences can be found in this post.
