you try where I work (http://www.aspectworld.com) as we have schools in US, Canada, Australia and UK.

Summer school staff and IAY's (Intense Academic Year) tend to get short contracts teaching juniors and the all year rounders but there are thousands of language schools just in the UK.

I live on the Southcoast of UK in Bournemouth and we have over 30 language schools. Our students come from 4 principle regions; Asia, Western Europe (which is my region), Eastern Europe/Middle East and Latin America.

I think it is a fantastic career because you get to see and work with so many different cultures that boundaries become irrelevant and prejudice anathema. My office is so chilled and great to work in because - I'm sure - there are less of the Ol' British Empire types and more groovy global types :)

Good luck if you decide to do it.
