Teaching overseas in a foreign country is one of the best kept secrets in the teaching profession. Every year thousands of candidates take their first position abroad thinking that it will be their last. Although this is true for some, many teachers make international education a career choice, which opens up new horizons filled with excitement, discovery, and fulfillment.
BENEFITS OF TEACHING OVERSEAS
