We are dedicated to helping people discover the life-changing adventure of working and studying abroad. TWA was started in 2006 by Lizl Smit, after her return to South Africa from travels abroad. TWA has partnered up with fantastic agents abroad with extensive experience in their field.

Amongst other skills some include: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and international recruiting. But more than that, TWA team shares a love and passion for Assisting South Africans to make their dreams of working and living abroad come true. We believe very strongly in what we are doing both for our clients and the communities in which they live and work. We have all experienced the transformative effects of living and working abroad and are dedicated to enabling more people to share in this experience.

Teaching in Thailand




I have had the best experience with the Pretoria office anyone could ever ask for. I could call Lizl at 11pm and she would help me, I could text or email her anytime of the day, week or month and she is always helpful. Never did she once get mad when I called her or texted her with many random questions, she always answered me with kindness.

When I was not able to get to the office in Pretoria to do my test Lizl and Samantha drove to the office I worked at just so that I could do my test! I could never have asked for better service than the service I received from the Pretoria office.


My experience was more than I expected, it was great!


My experience has really been fantastic. Thailand is a beautiful country and
there is still so much I want to discover.


I really feel prepared and good to go. My experience has been very good, I love
it. Especially with the attitudes of everybody, they care, it’s very comfortable.


I want to make a difference and mean something to someone. I love teaching,
being funny, and working with kids!
