Do you want to pay off your student loans?
Want to travel the world?
Want to have free room and board and travel?
Sounds more like you?
Do you like teaching?
Do you like kids?
Do you have a bachelor’s degree?
Do you have a TEFL?
Don’t know what that is, well in this blog I am spilling the TEA on how to have a lucrative career and travel the world!
Well, I hope you like TEA cause I’m spilling it! Want to know how people are relocating and becoming expats while working? Well the TEA is… They are TEACHING ENGLISH ABROAD and so can you, YEP I SAID IT! Moving ABROAD is ONE of the best ways to travel, and still work and get good vacation. YES one of the best ways to move abroad is teaching, it is so universal and teaching English is very lucrative.
“BECOME AN ENGLISH FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHER,” they said.
All you need is a bachelor’s degree, 2 years teaching experience or 120 hour TEFL certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) these are really inexpensive on groupon. Honestly that is all you need. This is the easiest part and then you can start applying online to jobs. Remember that wherever you are there are different time zones though.
Are you still interested?
If that sparked your interest, here are some more perks that may catch your attention.
3 Reasons You Should Teach English Abroad
The PERKS, you have little to no Payouts. You really don’t have to pay for much except living, they usually will give you a housing stipend or free rent. With that, you are able to save a lot of your income and you still have some money to pay off your bills in your home state. Sometimes they pay for your flight or reimburse you. There could be VISA fees but that depends on the country you want to go to.
If you are interested in getting a breakdown on the countries and visa requirements you can just look up the different embassies in the United States. Now depending on the countries depends on how much you get paid, vacations and what type of job you will have. Most times in these countries you will be an English teacher in a public school, but if you are in China you can teach at a University or Private schools and training centers.
Asia has a lot of expats and it is growing everyday with people moving to teach if that isn’t your continent of choice you can look into South America, the Middle East and some parts of Africa. If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to reach out on my Instagram at
