I believe travelbud is a good organization if you choose the program that fits you. Most of the programs are geared toward first time teachers and may not be exactly what you expect. You will need to ask a lot of questions to get confirmation on basic logistics. If you have traveled before it is likely you will be able to find something that fits you by simply searching online for jobs within the country. There are hundreds of jobs available with legitimate schools. The coursework for TESOL is very broad and minimal and does not really prepare you to teach English specific to where you are going. I would suggest you take full advantage of every time you have to travel and do it on your own, not with the organization. It is much more authentic and certainly more cost-effective

Would you recommend this program?

Private Note to Provider (optional)
Travelbud was helpful, but XploreAsia needs a lot of improvement with communication and support for those who are enrolled.
They certainly need more help in assisting with placement officers to make sure that people are being placed in the correct locations for teaching
