10 ways to travel and make money with your language skills

Travel and make money. Sounds like an advert for your dream job, right? Well in the modern world these two things can feasibly go together...  


In addition to many surprising mental health benefits, being fluent in multiple languages looks excellent on a resume. If you already speak a second (or third, or fourth) language - you’re one step ahead of the game. If not, you might want to start learning!


There are countless new and exciting opportunities for multilinguals, especially in the job market. Being multilingual can lead to higher salaries, easier travel, as well as more networking and connections.


If you haven’t found your dream job yet, there are also dozens of side jobs that language lovers have access to. For example, becoming a language tutor is one of the easiest ways to earn extra income. With today’s technology, you can be a virtual tutor to students around the globe from the comfort of your own home.


Another fun option is to create your own YouTube channel. Language videos are great visual tools and very popular among students. Once you’ve built up an audience, you can make money through affiliate ads.


If you’re more artistic and like writing or journaling, creating your own blog might be a better fit for you. Once you have enough followers, it’s easy to monetize your blog with ads, guest posts, and/or paid links. Freelance writing through sites like Upwork is another great option for writers.

These are just a few of the ways you can make easy money with your language skills. Check out the infographic from TakeLessons below for even more job offers that will help you put your skills to good use!
