If anyone has experience teaching English as a second language abroad, I would love any advice on which areas I should definitely look into; which areas I should definitely stay away from, etc. I'm open to almost any country. Any advice is helpful. Thanks! Oh, and, I'm an American. Although I'm "blue-state minded", me being American might change some of your minds about where I would be welcomed.

Well as an American the usual choices of where to go are either South America or Asia. (It's harder to get into Europe due to visa issues.)

In South America Mexico is a popular destination and in Asia you might want to think about China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam.

Of course there are other destinations, but these are tried and tested for new teachers and you'll find other Americans there which is sometimes a good thing when you're starting out and need some help.

There are a lot of places to teach ESL in South America. Mexico and other central American countries have a lot of ESL opportunities as well but, consider Brazil, Puerto Rico (an American territory - no visa needed), etc. before settling on Mexico.

You are right, I have found many new things that helped me to speak the English language perfectly.

I only have experience teaching ESL in Europe, but I find that even during the Bush years Europeans were very happy to have an American teaching - any native speaker is better than nothing! Especially once they get to know you.

For adults there is no problem but sometimes I had trouble teaching high school students who needed very specific British English phrases and spelling, however.

Best of luck!

While looking for ESL job openings abroad, one must research on a few things. The region or countries he or she wishes to, the job openings found there, average remuneration package and whether it is sufficient along with immigration and general laws of that country. These jobs are available in most countries whether they are in native English speaking countries or non-English speaking countries.
