If you don’t mind crazy hours and a hectic lifestyle, this is the perfect job for you. The perks of the job come with heavily discounted or free flights for you and our family.
No, not like Mrs. Smith, your high school English teacher. Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) allows you work practically anywhere in the world. The length of time varies, usually, from one month to up to a year—plenty of time for you to explore your host country and soak up its fabulous culture, and get to know the locals. The job often comes with flights and accommodation provided. Qualified candidates should speak fluent English, have a college degree and TEFL certification. TEFL courses can be completed in as little as four weeks and generally start under $200. To find a course, go to tefl.com.
