What's Next? Fighting the Travel Bug After Teaching English Abroad

By: Kirsten Iverson

I sat there staring into space, holding my pen to my lip, my eyes glued to nothing. I was daydreaming again. Dreaming of trying to communicate in a new language, trying new foods, standing in a new place, long bus rides, and uncomfortable hostel beds. I wanted it back: life abroad.

Finding Cherry Blossoms in Boston

By: Becca Simas

I am a born-and-bred New Englander. The only region in America where you can drive through six states in one day and never pass an exit sign that doesn't have a Dunkin Donuts. I grew up loving clam chowder and watching the leaves change colors every October. I was born in Rhode Island, grew up in Connecticut, spent winters skiing in Vermont, and moved to Massachusetts after college. I love where I grew up, and I’m proud to call New England my home. I’ve always been a restless soul, though, and I longed to travel. Besides a family vacation to Portugal, and a week-long volunteer trip to Nicaragua in grad school, I had never traveled outside of North America. After 27 years of calling New England my home, it was time to make a change. I requested information from the International TEFL Academy, and with in a few hours, I was chatting away with Jeff, my representative, about the magic of teaching abroad. I was sold. I signed up for the online TEFL class, and within two months of earning my certification, I was ready to move halfway across the world to Japan.

Jumping Across the Ocean - The Challenges of Returning Home from Teaching English Abroad

By: Judy Liu

What do I do when I move back?

It’s a daunting question. And sometimes, it’s the very reason why we never return to our home country.

That courage it took to pack everything into two suitcases and move across the world? It takes that very same courage to move back.
