Tired of teaching in your home country? Are you interested in obtaining an international teaching gig? Then keep reading to see why English Teachers Internationalis the best option for you.
Travel the world for free
If you love to travel and teaching, then teaching English abroad is the best job for you. You don’t have to be a native speaker or a fully qualified teacher. Teaching abroad is open to anyone who has a passion to teach and learn.
You can discover the world while you teach English abroad. You get to know different cultures, meet new people, make new friends, and experience a new way of life in a foreign country. And it doesn’t necessarily have to cost you a fortune. There are many programs that offer free flights, accommodation, and meals while you teach, so you can just focus on your career and enjoy your travels. Teaching abroad is one of the most rewarding jobs you can choose. You help others learn a language that can lead to greater opportunities in their lives – be it getting a better job at home or immigrating to an English-speaking country. While doing that, you get paid for the work that you do and learn about other cultures from the inside out.
Meet new people from different countries and cultures
Teaching English overseas is a great way to see the world and experience new cultures. As an English teacher, you will have the opportunity to travel, explore and live in a completely different environment.
When you work abroad you will meet new people from different cultures, learn new languages and share your own culture with others. You will also develop an international network of friends for life.
Learn a new language
The benefits of learning a new language are truly endless. The most obvious benefit is that you can communicate in more than one language. You will be able to communicate with more people and talk about things you wouldn’t have been able to talk about otherwise.
When you learn a second language, you also begin to pick up on the different cultures of the country. You will be surprised at how much culture can affect how we speak, why we say things, and how we act. This can be extremely helpful when you decide to travel abroad or if you need to move somewhere else for work or for study purposes.
Get to know yourself better
Teaching allows you to get to know yourself better. You are constantly challenged, and the more you are challenged, the more you will learn about what you like, how you think, and what your limitations might be.
Teaching is a job that requires mental alertness. It requires a lot of preparation and planning….preparation and planning that isn’t always done in-office hours. Sometimes it’s done at home in the evening or on weekends. But if you like being mentally vigorous and involved, teaching will satisfy this need for you. In fact, many teachers say they enjoy preparation time almost as much as classroom time.
Teaching is a job where there is always something new to experience. Students change from year to year and from one class to another. The curriculum changes; sometimes the new curriculum is exciting, sometimes it’s difficult to implement. New colleagues are a constant source of change and challenge.*
Teaching can provide a sense of accomplishment or pride when students have learned something well or overcome obstacles.
Gain professional experience
Teaching is a great way to gain professional experience in your chosen field, as well as build up your skillset. It also provides a way to earn a living while still studying.
Teaching is an excellent way to meet people, especially if you are new to the area. You will meet other teachers, and parents of the children you are teaching.
You don’t need to be a qualified teacher to teach English. If you do have the qualifications, this will make it easier for you to find work and more likely that you’ll get paid more.
