Before you decide to work abroad as a teacher, think about where you will work, the cost of living, visa regulations, the climate, the culture and if you are up to the job of teaching. Teaching English is not just about the language, you need to be a good communicator, you need a knowledge of grammar, you need to be an extrovert, you need to be inventive, charming, fun and more importantly, you need patience, time and energy to do it. Teaching is not easy and not everyone can do it just because they speak English. Native speakers are very popular with learners of English and if you can do it well, you should be able to make a good or even an excellent living abroad as a teacher. To teach English to children, you need experience and courage, to teach English to adults at home or at their work place, you need confidence, good organization and langauge ability. Going it alone, is far better and I recommend most people to try it.
Despite my experience, I still fail to learn by experience and still fall into deep holes that trap me into believing something is a good option when money is needed. Don't make my stupid mistakes and walk carefully when money is involved, always be suspicious of what is expected of you, this is very obvious advice but many don't follow it. There are always long strings attached that can sometimes be invisible.
