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

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