How can I get teaching experience abroad?

Teaching English is a great way to gain experience overseas. If you’re unsure as to whether you’d be best suited to teaching adults or children, you can choose a placement which involves a range of age-groups and abilities. If it’s your first experience teaching, taking a qualification such as a TEFL can make such a difference to your confidence in planning and leading classes, as well as standing out to future employers. This is why I’d advise choosing an opportunity that involves a TEFL, as well as training within the country. insert: </p>
