Native English Speaker vs. Non-native English speaker (NES vs. NNES)
In certain countries, such as South Korea—you will only be able to find a teaching position and obtain a visa if you are a "native English speaker". Essentially that means that you come from either Britain, Ireland, America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand or South Africa. If you are from a country that is considered "non-native" then don't fret, the opportunities out there are plentiful in a variety of countries across the world. The guide will explore those countries and opportunities with you. There is also an additional chapter for Filipino teachers looking to make the move abroad and information on how and where to find a position.

In addition, you will also learn exactly how to land a job, the desired qualifications, visa requirements and expected salary in over twenty different countries.
It's extremely important for you to find and choose the best contract, in the best country, at the best school or language institution. There are so many jobs, in so many countries available, and this book will give you specific details on what to consider. For example, is this job, this school, this contract, this pay rate and benefits, the amount of holidays, and this community the right choice for you?
Don't just holiday abroad, move there, live there, teach there, play there and completely immerse yourself in a brand new culture. What are you waiting for?
