Teaching English Abroad. Third Edition.
This guide offers advice on how to find long-term and short-term English teaching jobs for those with and without previous teacher training. The guide provides firsthand accounts from teachers to show the neophyte how to make the most of his/her experience (and how to avoid the pitfalls). It presents information on where to go for the best opportunities with a country-by-country look at potential employers, teaching requirements, working conditions, housing, and more, and provides details on more than 200 training courses that can help prepare individuals for teaching abroad. The guide is divided into two broad sections: the first section contains all the general information about teaching and living abroad and the second section contains information about each country. Appendixes contain a currency conversion chart, addresses of foreign embassies and consulates located in London and Washington, and addresses of British Council offices around the world. (NKA)
