I live in the US, and am currently beginning my training for my Private Pilot's License, so this scenario is a few years down the line. By the time I finish high school/ secondary school, I will be 18 1/2 years old and hopefully have my Commercial and CFI licenses. After graduating high school I am planning on taking a year off to work overseas before going to university. I would like to find a way to stay up to date and build a few flight hours while I'm in another country, and figured perhaps I could become a Flight Instructor. Does anyone have any advice about doing this? Is it even feasible? Are there other ways to build hours overseas, perhaps certain programs, jobs, etc?

All ideas are much appreciated,

You have to have a license for the country of the aircraft's registration.... which, for you, would mean getting a license for whatever country you're going to be based out of for your gap year.

To flight instruct, you must also be eligible to work in the country you're staying at. It sounds like you will already want to have a job, but "overseas" is pretty vague. It sounds like unless you have dual citizenship in some EEC country, you will have a near impossible time getting work authorization.
