Teaching English as a foreign language has become extremely popular amongst travellers these last few years.
I have friends in so many countries in Central and South America, mainland Asia and South East Asia that currently work full time as English teachers.
It’s a great job for anyone wanting to live in a specific country, and earn some money at the same time.
Teaching also has many benefits for us.
We learn how to stand in front of a group of people and get a point across.
We gain self confidence, and the ability to hold people’s attention for a given amount of time.
