Does anyone know of short term jobs that include travelling overseas?


For example teaching English as a second language. I'm wondering if it's possible to go to a foreign country for say, 3 months, pay my way teaching ESL, and have plenty of time to explore it and learn their language. If such jobs exist, how do I get one? Thanks!

    Tourist guide sounds good. I don't speak any foreign languages well enough to be a translator or interpreter, though I have used Google Translate. Thanks for the agency leads - I'll check them out.

    The "chalet girl" job sounds interesting! Thanks!

    P.S. Do you know anything about short term volunteer positions overseas?

    Thanks! I have no experience in TEFL, but am willing to learn. So apparently there is work in Europe! I was afraid everyone there spoke English, and there would be no need.

    Thanks! I've checked some of them out. How about a summer position; wouldn't that run 3 months?

    By PR, do you mean mingling with the guests to make sure they have a good time? I think I can do that. Publicity for the cruise ship - that, I'm not sure about.
