One of the best ways to appreciate a foreign country is to speak the local language – if you’re feeling a little tongue-tied, consider enrolling in Spanish classes in either Panama City, Boquete or Bocas del Toro.
Those who want to go out dancing in some of the capital’s nightclubs should learn the right moves: take a few salsa or merengue classes while in Panama City.
Teach English abroad with an i-to-i TEFL Course
If you’ve ever thought about living and working abroad, then why not teach English as a foreign language (TEFL)? It could be the key to funding your travels and experiencing new cultures in a totally new way. You don’t need teaching experience or even the ability to speak the local language – although you might learn it while you’re out there.
