I loved where I was placed or housing, the school was fantastic. My co-teacher and I worked together for four years and I hated leaving her. We got along fantastic with no issues all four years. All of the Arabic teachers were friendly and loving. My English co-workers were from all over the globe. Was great to find out how other countries taught. At the time I was there everyone was new so we blended together and form lasting friendships. I still stay in contact with many of my friends from the UAE experience. Can't say enough about how good the experience was. Wish I could have stayed longer.

How can this program be improved?
I could have used a little more support for Teach Away in letting us know more on what to expect.

My experience in South Korea was amazing. I felt very supported by my recruiting agency, Teach Away. From the initial contact through the application process to my over the phone interview, reviewing and signing the contract as well as physically traveling to join us in orientation in South Korea - Teach Away was there for me every step of the way!

I loved my teaching experience in Korea. I was able to make life long international friends. Working in the public schools allowed me a unique experience to get to know the local people and culture (I was the only foreign teacher in my school - probably my favorite thing about the program). I found the school very supportive and attentive to my needs. They were very welcoming and wanted to make sure that I felt comfortable and safe in my living accommodations. They went above and beyond to teach me about their culture and language and in return, I helped them learn conversational English. It was a great exchange! I was also able to travel extensively while I was there as well, an opportunity I do not think I would have been granted otherwise. Overall, the best experience of my life!

How can this program be improved?
I was very impressed with the program overall. I experienced this as a new graduate, and that's whom I'd recommend the experience too - someone who is looking to develop their skills as a teacher, travel and experience something new!

Teaching in China was one of the best experiences of my life. I made so many friends with people from around the world and built lasting friendships that have withstood the test of time. Seeing the genuine smiles on my kids (yes, I call them mine) faces when they saw me each morning was something I will always cherish. I would recommend teaching in China and going through a recruiter made me feel more prepared, as opposed to going to a foreign country and finding a job after the fact.

It's been a lifelong dream of mine to teach overseas and I was happy to realize it in Beijing. There's so much to see and experience inside the classroom and outside with my teaching colleagues. I feel invigorated and re-inspired in my teaching. I found my job through Teach Away and the experience was great. They were professional at every point in the process and I felt really comfortable to take my career overseas with their help. A big hand to them.

How can this program be improved?
In country support could be improved. Though I had very little questions for Teach Away at that time, could have been nice.

I've had an amazing experience teaching in Hong Kong. There is a very big expat community and in no time I felt completely at home. While it was definitely one of the hardest teaching jobs I've ever had it's been one of the most rewarding. I still stay in contact with Teach Away and was so grateful to have the help and support of my placement coordinator Katie - I even sent her a few email while I was there and she was always helpful and supportive. If you ever have the chance to teach in Hong Kong do it. HK is the perfect place if you want to travel without leaving the comforts of home behind. Easy transition!
