Yes, you may initially start to panic when you get your teach abroad placement, google the destination, and find nothing about it online. Yet, you’ll quickly realize that going off-the-beaten-path, is perhaps the best way to spend your time living abroad.

It’s for these reasons that CIEE has begun our Teach Abroad program in Lisbon. This program is perfect for anyone looking to immerse themselves in local culture, experience European beauty, and travel on a budget. The program is also only three months, so you don't have to commit too much time to it. Need more convincing? Here are 10 reasons why you should teach abroad in Europe’s hidden gem.
