Product Description


I highly recommend the Teaching English Abroad book for anyone interested in teaching English. I'm the Director of a TEFL school in Prague and we consider this to be our bible! Our staff and students use this regularly for up to date information on language school contacts, types of jobs, recruiting agencies, salaries, visas, and working conditions. A definite must have! - TEFL Worldwide

HASH(0x9dcf9630) out of 5 stars Really great resource for prospective teachers! April 27 2012
By SH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I highly - HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who wants to teach aboard. For the record, I'm American, and while some of the information does talk about interviews in the UK or whatever, I've found it to be a HUGELY helpful resource for job-hunting. The GF and I are using the book to look for jobs in Asia, and it's been invaluable.

This book will answer your basic questions about almost any country in the world: what's it like to live there, what are the teaching conditions like, how much will I be paid, what's the cost of living, etc. It also lists reputable schools in each country and gives their contact info - a REALLY REALLY valuable resource!

The information in the book is clear, straightforward and well organized - pretty much the opposite of searching online. I really can't overstate how immensely great this book is - especially compared to the other options: Google searching, forums full of trolls, etc.

Getting a job teaching English abroad could be as easy as:
1. be qualified
2. find a country you like in the book
3. send your resume, etc to schools listed in the book
4. hopefully get some interest, and some offers

Good luck!
HASH(0x9dcf987c) out of 5 stars I loved this book April 22 2015
By I. Lilaj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book! I ran across it at my Career Centre and I couldn't put it down! The author has done a wonderful job in compiling very useful information about various countries. It is very easy to navigate this book. Although this version is from 3 years ago, it was still very pertinent to my research.

I love that she has incorporated materials, employers, and even testimonials from past teachers into this book. Well done!

HASH(0x9dcf9c60) out of 5 stars A great review of TEFL Sept. 7 2013
By Sam Sei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Griffith really knows her stuff. She even supplies links and names that I would otherwise not trust as much online. The book discusses opportunities as well as difficulties to overcome and expect.
