: Teaching English Abroad
Has anyone here taught English as a foreign language abroad?
I'm just trying to explore different options for after I graduate... I've got a little while, but I'm feeling like I really need to expand my horizons past what my major (International Affairs) usually offers. I really want to travel and see the world for a little while after I graduate, and this just seems like a nice opportunity.
I'd love to hear stories/experiences if any curlies have them! Also, what kind of certification did you get? It seems like most places in the US offer TESOL/TESL/TEFL, whereas CELTA appears to be more common in Europe, if I'm understanding things correctly. Is there an advantage one way or the other? I know that some countries don't require certification at all if you have a Bachelor's degree, but that sounds absolutely terrifying to me.
