Teaching English Abroad
Summer schools are popular in English speaking countries since they offer the learner a short course in English which total immersion into the language. These courses can be from 2 - 8 weeks. In the UK, the main opportunities for work are in June, July and August. Scotland is becoming increasingly popular for learners, particularly Japanese students.
Voluntary teaching is also popular since it gives you the chance to travel and teach abroad for short periods of time. Often the teaching is in poor areas in schools that cannot afford a teacher. India is a popular destination and there is a lot of work to be found teaching street kids to give them some kind of leg up in life. It is also possible to get voluntary work teaching in Scotland by teaching English to non-English-speaking communities.
