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?


Let’s see if you can find a job in a place you’ve never thought of teaching.

Here are some links to websites that show some locations for teaching around the world. Explore the websites and identify a country you would never have thought about teaching in.

To open a link in a new tab, hold down ‘Ctrl’ (or ‘Command’ on a Mac) when you click on it.

Once you’ve chosen somewhere, complete the following sentence and post it as a comment. Read other people’s sentences. See if you can find someone who’d like to teach in your country and tell them one reason why it’s a good idea.
