A letter from CIEE’s (Council on International Education Exchange) Director of Teach Abroad Programs Matthew Redman appeared on my desk on top of the keyboard.
“Dear Colleague, I write today to share two interesting facts for your graduating seniors: It is easy to get an international job and gain valuable international professinal experience; Graduates of any major are eligible to teach English abroad.”
CIEE Teach Abroad is not a corps. Not Peace Corps, not Teach for America Corps, not Army of Engineers Corps. CIEE Teach abroad emphasizes being a program provider and not a recuiter.
- Teaching programs are located in Chile, China, Dominican Republic, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The Nuts and Bolts from the poster:
