After my article in International Living was published,
( http://internationalliving.com/author/sbaxley/ ) I was flooded by e-mails from people hailing from all parts of the English speaking world wanting to experience life in a different country, but having no idea how to go about getting there.
They were seeking answers on getting certified to teach in a foreign country, choosing a continent to live on, the best and worst aspects of being overseas, securing visas, finding housing, dealing with homesickness, creating engaging lesson plans, and traveling cheaply to exotic corners of the world on school breaks!
You, too, can live in a faraway land and take dream holidays! I am anxious to share my secrets with you. Would you like to travel this amazing planet? How about traveling on the cheap with paid time off or travel stipends? I’m snorkeling with sharks in turquoise water and exploring ancient rainforests on a rented motor scooter... why aren't you?!
Let me help you sort through the details before you accept a job offer. Using my checklist can help you sidestep some major issues, and help you avoid some of the mistakes I made. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) can be a once-in-a-lifetime roller coaster ride, and this guide is here to give you a taste of what to expect!
In my e-book, I give you an honest view of the process of finding a dream job overseas and life once you are working there. This guide covers everything from assessment reports to negotiating contracts, verifying the authenticity of a position to adjusting to culture shock and getting plugged in to your new city. Plus, I have included 89 children's games to jump start your lesson plans and liven up your classroom!
This guide is nothing fancy or professional, just me telling you like it is for less than three dollars.
Whether you are looking for adventure and exotic travel, desperately need employment and housing in the economic squeeze, or are simply seeking a change of scenery, you’ll find the cure when you teach abroad.
If you can read this, you have a very valuable gift that people are willing to pay to learn. Let me show you the way to your next job!
