Teaching English Abroad on a Working Holiday Visa
Various countries throughout the world maintain reciprocal agreements with other nations that allow their citizens (typically youth under the age of 30 or 35) to work, live, and travel - usually for one year - in a foreign country legally through a Working Holiday Visa (also known as a "Youth Mobility Visa" in some cases). English-speaking countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, and New Zealand have established numerous relationships with countries throughout the world, including many countries in Europe that are popular destinations for teaching English abroad, including France, Germany, Italy and some other European nations.
Unfortunately, the United States and South Africa don’t currently maintain many Working Holiday Visa agreements with nations around the world that are typically strong markets for teaching English abroad. But don't let that stop you from considering teaching English in such nations as Italy and Germany, because there are still many opportunities and thousands of Americans do live and teach English in these countries.
