Language Corps
Language Corps is a company that connects you with various schools, programs and organizations around the world that offer TEFL/TESOL (Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language), Jobs as an English teacher abroad, and volunteer opportunities. They are the middle man that helps ensure legitimacy, which can be hard to decipher when googling teaching English abroad. They are the company I used to find my job in Peru.

Maximo Nivel
Maximo Nivel is the company I got my TEFL certificate through, and worked for as an ESL Teacher in Cusco, Peru. They have locations in Peru, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. They also offer Spanish classes and volunteer opportunities.

Sky Scanner
Sky Scanner is one of my favorite tools. It allows you to keep track of flight prices when they drop and rise without having to constantly be checking travel websites. They automatically send you email alerts when your selected flights become cheaper!

Secret Flying
Secret Flying offers unbeatable but random deals for flights all over the world. It is especially useful for people with flexibility on their travel dates and open to several destinations.

Lonely Planet
Every trip I have ever taken, I used Lonely Planet, and I swear by it! They may not be the cheapest travel guides, but they certainly can save you money with their extremely detailed and helpful budgeting tips. All their guides are available in pdf formats or hard copies, which can be ordered online through websites like amazon.

Idealist and Devex are both databases that put you in touch with a huge range of volunteer opportunities, internships, and even paid jobs around the world. is how I found my current job in Tanzania.
