Quick Tip: Don't Work Illegally

I'll admit that in some countries around the world, it's pretty easy to teach EFL illegally. Border hopping is quite common or you can simply overstay your visa and pay a fine.  While this might be fine and well for some people, if you want to be respected as a teacher and make pave the way for future teachers, you really should be working legally.

Working illegally means that you're at your employer's mercy and you're breaking the law. To make things worse if you get caught there could be serious consequences. Border hopping might work, but what happens if you're not let back into the country? There are just too many issues with working illegally, so do the right thing and get a work visa and work permit.

Got an idea for a quick tip?
Email me with your quick tip, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
