The other day my assistant started telling me all about her experience teaching English in Peru. She got to stay with a loving family and created lasting friendships with the girls she was teaching at an orphanage. This started to get me thinking about all the other organizations that might offer this same unique experience.
These 5 organizations for teaching English abroad are looking for teachers to teach in Korea, Spain, South America, and more. There is even a program called Disney English that sets you up in a classroom in China. For some of these programs you can choose how long you want to be there to teach, and others offer contracted positions for longer stays. This is a wonderful way that you can be fully immersed into the culture of a country, while also giving back.
