You should already have a flavour of just how global the ELT profession is.
Where are you thinking of working? You might be thinking of working in your own country or you might want to go to another country.
You’ve heard from teachers about the different places they’ve worked. Did any of them sound interesting to you? Did you like the idea of teaching in Germany, or Spain, or Hong Kong? What jobs are there in different countries?
