Hello,
I am hoping you can help me by providing me with some basic advice.

I am a recent university graduate and am determined to spend some time teaching english abroad. I've spent the day surfing the internet, trying to get a feel for the international english teaching community, and feel quite overwhelmed!
My question: Can you reccomend a guide, be it a website, FAQ, book, etc., that can explain the basics of finding work internationally teaching english? I am looking for a basic explanation that illustrates how to search, apply and accept a job teaching english overseas. I would like to know more about visa requirements, necessary credentials, compensation, and everything else. I want to learn about the fundamentals of this profession - what source of information do you suggest?
Thanks,
Ash
P.S. - If anyone would like to contact me personally and help me illuminate this new world I wish to step into, please feel free! It would be greatly appreciated!

To see what's available do a web search for > Dave's esl cafe <

It has general info plus a daily listing of jobs advertised.

Where do you want to go?
If you're interested in Asia you could spend years there, going from country to country, job to job.
Or you could settle there. One former student of mine went to teach ESL in Malaysia 10 years ago. He's now director of an ESL school there. The son of a neighbour went to Korea, married a Korean girl. They are now the translators for a large Korean firm, as well as teachers of English to the firm's employees. And well paid.
Two other former students went to Asia for 2 -3 years, then used their teaching experience there to secure jobs back here in Canada.
That's from a town of 50,000.
