Before teaching the world, let the world teach you; study education abroad!
Traveling the world makes us awesome storytellers. Don’t believe us? Just ask anyone who’s studied abroad – we guarantee they’ll fill your ears with thousands of stories (we’re guilty as charged)! This gift of storytelling is especially powerful for future teachers. Thanks to studying abroad, the lessons you teach about foreign cities or cultures will have much more value after you’ve experienced them yourself – and there are a bunch of unique study abroad programs available for all sorts of education interests.
Here are a few of our favorite places to study education abroad:
1. San José, Costa Rica
