5) Teach a Language

This requires a bit of planning, and you’ll need some formal training and credentials. Still, once you get your necessary schooling, you can travel virtually anywhere you want. A great example is teaching English as a Second Language or ESL. Certificates in ESL can enable you to go almost anywhere in the world where people want to learn how to speak English. You can get hired by schools, colleges and universities. You’re likely to have to make some sort of time commitment, though, but this might be as short as 3 – 6 weeks. Most often, institutions will offer financial assistance. This may include them paying some portion of your travel costs, providing you with help in getting cheap tickets, or offering you free or low cost accommodation for the duration of your stay.
