Tips for Teaching English Abroad
I’ve been an English teacher for more than 15 years now, in three different countries and in all kinds of situations: university, high school, general ESL schools, conversation clubs, meeting rooms in factories, people’s homes, even at a kindergarten in South Korea, which was my first teaching job.
What began as a means to adventure and living abroad has become my career. But it’s more than a career; it’s still a means to adventure and living abroad, and it’s also opened other opportunities, such as translating.
I’ve learned a lot, from teacher training courses and especially experience, and I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way. These experiences (including mistakes) informed my newest article for Transitions Abroad: the Guide to Teaching English as a Second Language Abroad. Please click the link for the article.
International ESL teaching is a profession that’s not going anywhere, and it’s a great opportunity for anyone who likes working with people and wants to see the world. Whether you are an aspiring teacher or are teaching already, I hope you can gain some insight from the article. I welcome questions and different opinions in the comments.
