Have you considered taking a Teaching Jobs Abroad? Have you decided to take a year to get away from it all? If you are teaching at a school, a college or a university? If so, taking a break from your career or keeping busy during retirement affords you the opportunity to meet new people and experience new cultures.
There are two types of break from which teachers like you normally choose: a relaxing holiday-style experience or a productive skill-enhancing one.
Whichever choice you select, you have the ideal opportunity to go to a place you have always dreamed about visiting.
If you choose to explore Europe, you get sun and sandy beaches as well as culture and different civilizations. A lot of Europe is still relatively undiscovered by most Americans, Canadians and Britains. In Italy you can find history, architecture, nature and glamor. Further east you could take the train through Russia for a culture shock and a half. Russia’s history is evident on every street as poverty and massive wealth live side by side. For anyone who like history, architecture and Vodka, Moscow and St. Petersburg are the cities for you. Getting away from the classic British holiday destinations into somewhere a little less well traveled is what a gap year is all about.
Some people are looking to enhance their CV during a year abroad or want to learn new skills. Teaching jobs abroad are very popular as are volunteering projects. Teaching English as a foreign language enables you to develop a skill while getting paid and living in a totally new country. It is not only for the young though, Teflworld have estimated that 35 year olds and above make up the majority of English teachers abroad, so it is ideal for those experiencing a career break.
So if you are planning a gap year, do what you like, but remember to do something different! Sitting on your sofa for eleven months out of twelve with a couple of weeks in Magaluf doesn’t count as a gap year. Whatever you do, make sure you make some memories that you can treasure forever.
