I'm Irish. I've been to Australia for a year and really enjoyed myself. it's easy to get work and I recommend travelling the coast all the way around the country. I am currently in New Zealand, working for the moment and planning to do a bit of travelling here before going somewhere to teach english. I originally thought of Korea or Japan. Some people say deffinately Korea.. while others have said they hated it. Japan can be more money but expensive to live. I've heard Qatar near Saudi Arabia is a great place to make alot of money teaching english but the quality of life is not so good. I want to teach for maybe 2 or 3 months and save money. what influenced your decision on where you were going to go and why?
