What People are Saying

  • I have gone through CIEE for both study abroad as well as teach abroad. They have always been so helpful and there is always someone to help answer your questions. I like how organized of a company it is and I like how you can tell they know what they are doing.

  • There are many programs to choose from if interested in teaching in a foreign country, but I'd recommend CIEE for the connections. The orientation give the opportunity to settle in and meet friends that will be located around the country. CIEE also gives so much in country support which can be very helpful if anything comes up.
