    Hi, I am an experienced English teacher and am looking to work abroad before I retire (I'm 54). I'm really looking for advice on what to avoid. What should I look out for etc?
    Thanks

    Avoid working in England!

    Other than that, bonne chance, mon ami!

    Decide where you want to go
    Research school in the region
    Look for jobs in that region
    Send schools a prospective CV- good school will respond.

    You might be limited by your age as some countries won’t issue visas after 50, so make sure you research visa requirements too.

    Thanks for your replies. I never considered my age might be an issue but I can see from the link it is in quite a few countries.

    There’s plenty of places that will be happy to employ you. I did my last round of applications at 54. I had three offers on the table and a reasonable number of further interview requests after I had taken a job.
