Comments Teaching English Abroad

  • Denice

    I am not sure which edition I read, but this is an excellent introductory book when considering teaching English abroad. With that said, it's not very helpful for non-EU citizens wanting to teach in Europe as nearly all of the legal work there must go to EU citizens. I think it's better to get this book at the library and then do some research online.

    Although I can't judge the effectiveness of this book because I haven't tried to get a TEFL job or course recommended in the book, I can say that it was a well written and interesting tome, which gives you information about pretty much every country you could be interested in teaching in. The things I liked most was getting a sense of how many jobs where available in each country/region, which jobs had the highest pay, and anecdotes (both good and bad) from teachers who had been there, done that [...]

    This book is an excellent guide to getting a job or volunteer position teaching English anywhere in the world. The author goes country by country and offers all the details you need including what the rules and regulations are in each country, what to expect in the way of housing, food, shopping, etc and the best part of all are all of the links to actual programs in each country you can apply to complete with all of the info on what their requirements are. It is easy to choose a country or regi [...]

  • Angela Randall

    A really good reference guide for people who are about to do an EFL course or to consider teaching. It's got a few chapters of simple advice and anecdotes, but the bulk of the book is contact details for companies who you might do a course with or gain work with in the country of your choice. Very useful for people who are roaming the globe and planning ahead.

    not quite as helpful as "Getting Out"; it still gives me viable options for how to survive as an American who plans to live semi-permanently outside America. it does give some good information regarding pitfalls and scams

  • kylajaclyn

    I acquired lots of helpful websites through this book - but the majority of the information I need is for Americans, and this book is targeted for those in the U.K.

  • Amber

    This book has quite a lot of information for those who are looking to teach English in another country.
