Learning a new language while abroad
While you pursue your TEFL career in the foreign shores, it's but only natural to want to learn the native language where you're staying at. In fact many people move to a foreign country to learn a new language, such as spanish, and imbibe the culture of the country. As you may know, the easiest and fastest way to learn a language is speaking it on a daily basis and being there amongst the local people, immersing yourself in their culture.
If you've always harboured a desire to move to Asia, or couldn't get a ticket to Madrid for your TEFL job, well it could actually turn out to be a masterstroke of luck. Asia is one of the fastest growing regions and TEFL teachers are in huge demand out here since nobody actually speaks English fluently. It's also got a very unique culture where you can relish new experiences, learn a language and customs that are completely alien, and more importantly earn quite a lucrative salary in comparison to other regions.
