    anything anyone could tell me about their experiences teaching abroad would be helpful.

    also, any recommendations as far as companies to work with would be appreciated.

    anything at all really.

    There are plenty of places that will sell you a "degree" in it. but I know a few people that just went to a country asia epecially and just got a job doing it with no experience, they pratically dont want you to know any of the native language because the people will exploit it and not learn anything..

    ^it actually pays decently and you go to a country you've never been to to earn a living.

    it's a really good idea and experience.

    It is becoming a trend though, I see at least 3 people a day in various travels on the net that want to do this. I'm guessing lots of people get rejected.

    The paid teaching jobs are a lot harder to get accepted into, but there's TONS of volunteer teaching jobs that will put you up with free accomodations.

    I'll be teaching english in either Railay or Chiang Mai (Thailand) this coming May for a month or so.. it's volunteer, but i get a free place to stay, and when the cost of living is only a few bucks a day, I can't fucking complain.

    Stoked!

    That's because the companies arranging for people to do this know that any old dumbfuck's English is far better than anyone in Japan or China can possibly comprehend at the stage they're teaching, so it doesn't really matter who they get to do it.
