Comprehensive Information July 11 2009
By Butterscotch - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most comprehensive and useful sources I've found on this subject. It's modern, up-to-date with information, and is definitely a 'bible' for EFL teachers, or those who wish to become one. The first few chapters are introductory and provide some informaiton about various language degrees and certifications, and general information about working abroad and some of the potential problems/concerns you might have. The second part of the book -which takes up a majority of the pages - has a page or so devoted to all major countries in the world. For each country the author describes the EFL scene - whether jobs are plentiful, the amount of schools already in place, etc. and how difficult it will/won't be to get a work permit. There are also some leads for language schools in each country, with information about salasry, who to contact, requirements to work, etc. The unfortunate part about this book is that EFL comes across as a field that is non-lucrative and difficult to break into (especially if you're an American wanting to teach in the EU). Many of the country listings, when the author describes the prospects for teaching, are not encouraging at all, and have made me less interested in pursuing this line of work. The book, however, is a great resource if you're looking for EFL positions and further information.

Fantastic March 18 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The information provided in the book is a god send for someone starting out. It provides information on where to begin study wise, getting the job, local contacts in countries, and stories from others out there already. I highly recommend Teaching English Abroad for the novice and beginner.

A fantastic insight to teaching abroad, filled with great ideas. The do' and dont's to teaching in foreign countries. A must have to the your collection if you are serious about working overseas. The book also has list of courses around the world as well as the different levels of certificates but the beauty of this book it also has schools around the world that employ english speaking teachers.
