For that reason we have listed here two websites with good search functions for short-term teaching jobs and several schools that have a history of hiring people into positions of six months or less.
ESLJobs.com has a search function that can typically find a good number of short-term English teaching jobs from Korea to China to Latin America. The link for the search page is here: ESLJobs.com Search. You'll have to scroll down past all the advertisements to get to the search tool.

Many countries have informal English teaching sectors where many teachers work with only a tourist visa. While technically illegal, you will find literally thousands of such teachers in South and Central America and Thailand. Investigate such jobs very carefully so you don't find yourself in an immigration jail awaiting deportation.
