It’s no secret that teachers can feel underappreciated, underpaid, and overworked. This is largely the case throughout the western world. However, perhaps the best kept secret among those of us teaching at international schools is that, it doesn’t have to be this way!

Whether teaching English as a foreign language or working on a full-time contract with a top flight international school, teachers get paid much higher salaries and wages, receive excellent benefits, and get to enjoy living in an exotic or interesting place.

Teaching abroad is an exhilarating experience that will change your life. And the great thing about it is, you can actually receive the level of pay that all of us hard working teaching professionals deserve. 

In this course, How to Get a Job Teaching Abroad, I will teach you EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW to get hired with a high salary teaching in a foreign country.


Why Teaching Abroad is Awesome!

Teaching abroad solves many problems that face professional teachers in the West. Among these problems are low pay and lack of appreciation.

In this lesson, I will go over the many benefits of teaching abroad in various countries and situations.
