Love travelling to new places?
Enjoy meeting new people?
Then teaching abroad could be for you, but do you know what you need to teach abroad?
Here’s 4 things you need to know before apply:
Do you have a Bachelor’s degree? In order to get a visa to teach abroad, this will be a basic requirement, as well as having the relevant teaching qualifications. You are also often required to possess at least 2 years’ teaching experience at the relevant level and in the relevant subject.
Moving to another country requires a person who is able to easily adapt to their surroundings. The schools abroad may be quite different, they may have very different ways of operating, as well as different ways of teaching, so be flexible and remember most importantly to enjoy the time you have there.
If you have a passion for travel and exploring new places, then it would be perfect for you. Alongside of working, you will be able to explore your chosen country in your free time. Contracts are often between 1 - 2 years, so this would be plenty of time to visit those beautiful sites.
Moving to a new country will often have its own challenges, a different local language, new customs and manners, and cultural norms. Could you adapt yourself to learn and accept these new cultures? Visit our Middle East and Far East & Asia pages for more inspiration.
