    Take a Year Off Working Overseas: Teach English!

    By International Teacher Training Organization

    Do you need a break from the books? If university life has got you burned out and you are eager to see the world, taking a year off during your studies or after graduation to travel and do a little soul searching can be a wise investment in your future. Harvard College Admissions has been encouraging their students to take a "year off" for over thirty years, recognizing that those who take a year away from their studies to work or travel return refreshed, focused and with skills they could never get in the classroom. If you are considering taking time off to study or work overseas, the International Teacher Training Organization has the perfect opportunity for you.

    Why Teach English as a Foreign Language?:

    • It's the "loan-free" way to travel abroad.
    • International work experience looks great on your resume or grad school application.
    • There is no better way to truly experience another culture. Your educational and career goals will become clearer.
    • Second language skills are a major asset to your future.
    • It's the adventure you've been dreaming of.

    Unlike traditional study or volunteer abroad programs, teaching English overseas is paid employment. You won't have to take out another loan for this adventure and because your job is important to the community, you will have a unique chance to become integrated into the culture like no traditional student ever could. You won't just study and read about the culture, you will live it through experiencing the food, art, music, politics and day-to-day life of the place you choose to teach in. You will meet fascinating people, gain second language skills and develop valuable teaching tools that you can use for the rest of your life. When you return to school or begin your post-grad job, you will see the world through new eyes.
