Are you looking for an adventure? Deciding to teach English overseas can be an exhilarating but overwhelming experience. I know, I’ve been there. When I started teaching English, I was exactly where you are now. I didn’t know where to find a job, what schools were reputable, how to negotiate my contract, what degrees were needed, or if I had the skills needed. I had the same concerns and questions you have now. I know first-hand how stressful and confusing the process can seem, especially if you’ve never done it before.
While getting a teaching job might seem like a time-consuming and stressful process, it’s actually very easy once you know a few tips and tricks — even if you have never taught before.
Don’t get lost in a sea of information.
Like you, I was lost and spent days searching the Internet, trying to find up-to-date, honest, and accurate information. I rarely found any (which only added to my stress). Too many potential teachers give up and lose out on this great experience because they go crazy trying to find trustworthy information.
With all that confusing information out there, you can be unsure if this path is really right for you. That’s why I wrote this book — to make you sure you are making the right decision! This book will save you weeks of online research and give you the most accurate and updated information from real teachers — teachers who are out there in the field right now. You’ll hear secrets from practicing teachers sharing what that they’ve learned. This book will also show you the exact steps I and other teachers took to get a job overseas.
One of the greatest things I did was teach English overseas. That experience allowed me to learn about new cultures, pick up new languages, make international friends, and break out of my routine. Teaching showed me that if I can get up and move to a new culture and survive, I could do anything I put my mind to. It gave me confidence and international friends. And it helped me earn a lot of money while still saving for travel and paying off my debts!
This 166-page book will give you the tools you need to travel the world and work overseas by doing something you do every day: speak English.
There is so much information on the Internet about teaching overseas — and most of it is a ploy from schools just trying to recruit you to sign up for one of their TEFL courses. Thus, a lot of those sources cannot be trusted. This book is not like that. Matt’s book provided me with so much practical information and answered many of my questions. It was a great investment.”

How to Teach English Overseas
When you’re just getting started, there is a lot to consider. The list of questions and concerns (like the ones on the right) can be long. I know, because I’ve been in your shoes and had the same issues.
This book will discuss each of these points, offer viewpoints and advice from other teachers, and share my expertise. You don’t need to be stressed or overwhelmed about this process. It’s a lot easier than you think!
Teaching overseas is a great experience. It taught me that if I — a shy, introverted guy — can make it in another culture by myself, I can do anything I set my mind to! The experience boosted my confidence, and I’m forever grateful for the time I spent overseas.
And I want help you have the same experience.
Here’s how this book can help you get started teaching English – right now:
It will save you valuable time and energy.

Your time is more valuable than that.

When it comes time to interview for a position, you’ll be fully prepared and leave your competition in the dust.
It will help you understand teaching degrees.
This book helps you understand the most misunderstood aspect of teaching: teaching certificates. I compare and contrast the major teaching programs, and tell you when you need them and when they are a waste of time. You’ll also learn the best place to get a legit degree fast and affordably. This section will help you save money by showing you how to avoid scammy companies and overpriced courses.
It will give you one-of-a-kind comprehensive country info.
You’ll get information that you won’t find anywhere else online for the top 15 teaching locations in the world, including working conditions, salaries, benefits, cost of living, and visa information. This section provides all the information you need to make an informed decision on where to work.
It will hand you a comprehensive resource list.
I’ve compiled the best online websites and job boards that don’t charge fees for applying. You won’t have to worry if these companies are legit, because I’ve already vetted them. With these resources, you’ll start your job search on the right footing. There is too much spam on the Internet; by using this resource list, you’ll avoid getting cheated.
And you’ll get lifetime updates for free. Every year, I update the book’s contents to make sure you have the most current and accurate information for all of your decisions, including choosing where to teach. How awesome is that?
After hearing about a friend’s amazing experience teaching English in Taiwan, my wife and I began seriously considering the possibility. Matt’s How to Teach English Overseas provided great info to set our expectations for teaching and living conditions, and using the resources listed we found jobs, applied online, and secured positions at our top school within a few days. Two weeks later, here we are in Taiwan getting ready to start teaching tomorrow. I can’t believe how simple the process has been.” — Ben and Shonda

Matt’s book made me feel totally equipped to find a job abroad that would fit what I was looking for. I really appreciated the variety of locations he covered and how he dives into the pros and cons of each, in addition to providing resources for actually finding jobs in those areas. Matt made teaching English overseas no longer feel like a complicated process.” — Ben
My favorite part of the book is the crapload of information about teaching in different countries. It’s damned near impossible to find all this stuff rounded up in one location. There’s nobody trying to sell you a job; it’s all honest, raw information. Matt’s no novice either; he’s taught in both Taiwan and Thailand, so he knows what he’s talking about.” — Candice
Among the countless websites and digital resources providing information on where and when to go teach English abroad, I found Matt’s book to be the clearest and most up-to-date. Although I had narrowed down my choices prior to reading it, I think his page-by-page country guide allowed me to truly compare my choices. Most impressively, he sent an update to the digital book a few months after I bought it, so I knew I had the most recent info! Thanks so much!” — Valerie
