If you are thinking about living abroad and do not know how this can happen, think about becoming a teacher. There are many ways to do this and you could go anywhere to teach, especially since right now most classes are online.
One option is to gain a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate. This can be done online or in the classroom. I completed 100 hours online through Bridge TEFL. Their website is Premier TEFL/TESOL Certification Courses | BridgeTEFL. Some countries do not accept online, so I eventually completed my CELTA through International House. It is a four week in person intensive program. They have schools around the world and you get a chance to practice and improve your teaching skills. This course is for beginner teachers and advanced.

Once you have completed a certificate, it is time to start searching for jobs. Think about a country you would like to work in and start doing some research. Then think about the age group and if working at a language center is more appealing, or maybe a university or international school is something more for you. Most international schools will require a bachelor’s in education or an equivalent so just double check before applying. The university I got hired at gave me some teacher’s emails so I could ask them some questions about the university before accepting the job. So before accepting a job, ask if you can get in touch with some of the current teachers. I found my first job through the local expat website. I have included some helpful websites below.
