Can't get enough of living abroad? Feeling home sick for your new favorite city across the pond?

Teach English with International TEFL Academy

Teaching English is a good route to go if you're trying to head overseas. You can experience another culture, earn some money, learn another language and get some great overseas experience. 

WSA has partnered with International TEFL Academy, one of the world’s largest TEFL certification schools to become professionally trained as an English teacher. ITA trains more than 3,000 English teachers annually and offers internationally accredited TEFL-TESOL certification courses online and in 25 locations around the world.

Happy Backpackers

The most fun, exciting, educational, and craziest weekend I had during my semester abroad. You definitely get the maximum bang for your buck with WSA. WSA provided me with an unbelieveable weekend in Budapest. After hearing from my friends about their amazing experiences on WSA trips, I had to see what all the hype was about. I chose to take part in a WSA weekend in Budapest, and I loved every minute of it. The guide, Bogi, was the best! WSA is the perfect blend of an educational/tourist expereince while also allowing for sites off the beaten path as well as kickass nightlife. You won't regret a trip with WSA.
