TESOL in Your Gap Year

Gap year travel (huge in the UK, unknown in the USA) is a way for students to take a year out
and travel before settling down to their studies at university, often working as a volunteer (and
teaching English is a popular option). The needs and expectations of both sides (agency and
volunteer) are very different for gap year compared to a qualified teacher taking a career break
or travelling, so there are agencies that specialise in this work. For information about working in
your gap year, visit these websites:
