Teach English Overseas

One of the best ways to earn money overseas is by teaching what you know - English! When teaching English on an overseas working holiday, you can earn enough to live comfortably in the country you choose, sustain a healthy travel itinerary and, depending on your lifestyle, save a bit too!

Teaching opportunities are available in all non-English speaking countries around the world, although your main teaching options are in countries throughout Asia, South America and Europe, although the latter usually requires an EU passport.

At Student Flights, we can help you find work through our free job placement service or you can find work yourself. With approximately 20,000 English teaching jobs posted online each month, there are plenty of opportunities out there.

    The monks at the monastery may be experts in Buddhism but they aren't experts in English That's where volunteers come in. Many schools in Nepal lack the funds to provide effective English language training. You don't need any teaching experience - native or fluent English speakers with or without formal teaching experience can contribute greatly. For the best contribution, you should have good written and verbal English and you'll need to be flexible and patient.

    We work with two projects located in the favela Rocinha - both are nestled deep in the communities (and as a surprise bonus to the visitor, have amazing views). These two projects are the largest of their kind in the favela and offer programmes to both children and adults - the projects were set up by members of the community who wanted to do more for their neighbourhood and fill gaps lacking from the government.

    They have worked hard to provide programmes that mentor youth, advance the lives of the adults and to generally improve the overall life of the community.

    This project is suited to volunteers that have a desire to teach English as well as other subjects and if anyone has any teaching experience this would be better although this is not necessary, the desire to teach is the main thing.
