Traveling Abroad – The Advice You Didn’t Know You Needed


By: Cassie Wells

It’s good for you. It changes your life. It expands your horizons. It fills your heart. I could be talking about a multitude of things here… broccoli, puberty, math, or puppies. However, I’m talking about travel. Some consider travel a luxury while others consider it a necessity. Personally, I think it’s a little bit of both. I went from having never left the country in my mid 20’s to having traveled to about 20 countries in my early 30’s (notice how I said early 30’s…really hanging on here!).

I have learned a lot about how to pack just the right amount, how to ask for help in a few different languages, and how to turn strangers into friends. I’ve also learned that travel isn’t always what it seems. I’m not just talking about glossy Instagram pictures, either. Let me explain. Travel can be some of the best experiences of your life and sometimes the most challenging. There are many highs and lows. Travel makes you fall in love and breaks your heart all in a single day.

11 Reasons Why You Might Choose to Teach English in Latin America Over Spain

By Helen Schenck

I was 20, in college, day dreaming about my dream-life in Spain. I dreamed of sunny days in parks that have been around for centuries. I imagined myself walking through museums studded with Picassos and Goyas. I saw myself meeting my friends for tapas, all while having deep, Hemingway-esque conversations. Within months I was actually in Spain, living this dream.

While I was fortunate to experience each of these things while teaching English in Spain, I came back to the U.S. with a thirst for something more….but still in a Spanish accent. My thirst was satiated upon my next trip to Central America…and then again to South America and Mexico and beyond. Before, I had seen Spain as the end all be all of the Spanish-speaking world, but experiencing Latin America changed this, and my world, entirely.

So, if you want to learn Spanish and enjoy a tremendous international experience teaching English abroad, here are 11 of the many reasons to consider teaching English in Latin America rather than Spain.
