Reviewed: Teaching English Abroad

Susan Griffith / Crimson Publishing
576 pages / 9th edition / £14.99

Over 620 English language schools and teaching organisations around the world have participated in revising the latest edition of this popular publication.

Teaching English AbroadBut Susan Griffith’s guides are usually much more than the sum of their facts and contacts and Teaching English Abroad is no exception in not relying solely on information gained from the industry. Much of the content comes from the perceptions of traveller teachers on the ground.

Teaching English Abroad promotes the rewards in doing just that but doesn’t neglect the problems that may be faced in both securing and undertaking a teaching post. While the first hundred or so pages deal with methods for finding a job, preparation and problems and the value of ELT qualifications, the majority of the book lies in the Country Guide.

Each country is assessed for its prospects of providing work to English teachers and local work regulations are examined as to how they are applied in reality. Practical solutions are offered to combat competition from other teachers and the book identifies areas of growth and decline. Small details are not neglected such as whether schools are biased towards the British or American accent.

Verdict: Comprehensive global coverage – the top guide to securing a teaching job overseas.
