#TEFLTalk: Can I get an overseas teaching job with no experience?⁣
⁣
Some regions, such as Asia and Central and South America, don’t necessarily require you to have previous teaching experience to teach English abroad. Simply check the requirements of the school where you’d like to teach.⁣
⁣
However, if you’re looking for a way to add experience to your resume, there are plenty of ways to gain teaching experience at home before going abroad. For example, you can start your own tutoring business, teach English online, volunteer, or assist teachers at schools in your area.⁣

"At Yayasan Widya Sari, an English Teaching school on the North Eastern coast of Bali, Kindergarten students are provided a 3-hour school day, six days a week in which they learn the fundamental skills of early childhood development. Their language education consists of Balinese, Indonesian, AND English instruction. The Kindergarten staff provides creative, active, and applicable lessons and activities for the students to learn. ⁣
⁣
In this picture, I am leading a hygiene lesson in which the students learn the proper way to wash their hands and brush their teeth. By providing tangible objects such as toothbrushes, toothbrush, water, and soap, I was able to introduce English vocabulary for these materials and make them applicable to the students as they were using them. Through imitation of my words and actions they were developing their listening and speaking skills. Repetition and visual connections supported them in taking directions from an English speaker." - Lindsay Mattone, IDELTOnline grad teaching in Bali

BridgeTEFL grad Lorena (pictured here with her daughter) leveraged her training and teaching experience to open her own English tutoring business, catering to the tourist sector in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. 🌴🏖 In her new blog post, she writes:⁣
⁣
"I started my own business when the father of one of my middle-school students asked me if I’d be interested in teaching English to his employees at his hotel. I immediately jumped at the chance, sent him a proposal, finished the academic year with my private school kids and started work in September of 2003.⁣
⁣
At that time, setting up my business was relatively easy because there were so many hotels that needed onsite English teachers, and I was one of the few people in the area that could provide their employees with classes. ⁣
⁣
Working for yourself has both its good and bad aspects. You can pretty much dictate how many days a week you’ll work and set your own hours, though you’ll find that most businesses will ask you to teach during times most convenient for them. You can also charge quite a bit more than what schools in Mexico pay, but you will have to register with the Mexican taxation department as all companies will ask for valid electronic receipts."⁣
