The Best Places to Start Teaching Abroad:

The most popular countries where people start teaching abroad are South Korea, China, Japan, and Thailand because they offer great packages that include work visa, accommodation, and airfare. This allows teachers to return home with a few thousand dollars in their pocket. Another great thing about teaching abroad in East Asia is that you can use a recruiter to apply for jobs from home, so there isn’t the risk factor of moving to another country and not knowing when you will line up a job.

Schools in Europe and Latin America are smaller, so they do not have the infrastructure and funds to recruit teachers all over the world. This means that you have to move to the city where you want to teach, apply for jobs in person, and secure your work visa on your own. Also, most European countries only provide the work visa to those who hold a EU passport, so teaching abroad in Europe is more challenging for US, Canadian, and Australian teachers.
