Teaching English Abroad
Teaching English Abroad constitutes an exciting career move mostly for new college graduates. However, the number of applicants who view ESL jobs as a rejuvenating life change is on a rise.
TEFL and CELTA Certification
inAdvance has teamed up with a number of educational institutions offering TEFL and CELTA courses online. Studying online represents a unique opportunity for teachers who are already employed, particularly away from home and abroad.
Teaching AbroadTeaching English abroad offers a unique mind-broadening experience. Deciding on a career in ESL may in fact constitute a very important step in personal enrichment. While sharing your gift of English, you affect people's lives and their economic well-being. You learn about diverse cultures and different perspectives.
Jobs in EducationEducating foreigners in English implies promoting western values and to a degree lifestyles. Those considering 'careers in English', in other words, seeking jobs in education abroad, should act responsibly exemplifying the principles cherished in most developed democracies; to many students you will be a glimpse of the world they can only dream to be a part of.
Working in the Middle East
While considering teaching English in the Middle East, a number of considerations ought to be made in order to avoid unnecessary disappointment. Teaching English in Egypt may for instance offer great opportunities to explore the region's rich history; perhaps learn the language; however, salaries in Egypt do not match salaries offered by schools and universities in Saudi Arabia or the UAE. The same applies to teaching in Yemen; Yemen too is rich in history, yet teaching English in Yemen is not financially as rewarding as teaching ESL in other Gulf countries. Teaching English in the United Arab Emirates, and particularly teaching in Dubai represents likely the most lucrative ESL and EFL career opportunity in the world, however, often, English language teachers are discouraged by the high cost of living in the Gulf.
Teaching Jobs AbroadAccording to the U.S. Bureau of Statistics teaching jobs abroad are amongst the most sought after international jobs including trades and labour.
