We talked last time about how package tours and first class hotels just don’t give you a real international experience when you’re abroad. You need a lot more than this, if you want to really experience a foreign culture. So what’s the solution? What can you do to really learn about and really get a taste for what this new country is like. The answer is, stay for a long time. We don’t necessarily mean a lifetime, although some people who start down this path never return home again. But we do mean a good long time. Definitely more than a couple of months. A couple of months is great. You can see so much, but time goes by so quickly. A couple of months is really just a good long vacation.
We recommend international school teaching jobs. Whether you go abroad to teach ESL or if you feel like putting in the time to actually get a teaching license and teach a subject at an international school, this is really a great way to travel.
Imagine living in a foreign country and not having to worry about spending all the money you brought with you. Imagine knowing when yo u wake up tomorrow that your trip isn’t going to end anytime soon. You live there. You live abroad. Teaching can really make this a possibility for you. And who would have thought it. So many teachers seem like they’re never going to leave where they are, but this is not the case.
So if you’re serious about spending some time abroad, if you’re serious about really experiencing a foreign culture, if you want to see the world in a whole new way, look into the possibility of teaching abroad. It’s a great opportunity, and you don’t even have to be young, although it helps.
