Teaching and education related applicants may need to be flexible with destination and program dates as school academic calendars abroad vary greatly by location. Most destinations in the northern hemisphere have a similar calendar and experience extended summer breaks during May, June, July, and August making placements limited during this time.  The Southern Hemisphere locations are a great alternative during this time of year as this is their winter months.
