Question Easiest countries for Americans to move to and work?

So, as we know, we take alot of people in in this country cause we need the workers

but it doesnt seem to flow both ways!

what are some of the best countries where an American can go and work (and hopefully speak english)?

I recently met two South Africans, in different situations, neither of whom knew the other, who told me that it's very easy for college-educated Americans to immigrate to South Africa as South Africa is currently experiencing a brain drain where many of it's more educated people are seeking greener pastures abroad in places like Australia or the UK. English is one of the official languages of South Africa, the country is routinely cited as among the most beautiful on Earth and the cost of living there is incredibly low. However, its big problem, the main problem that is sending so many people scurrying away, is it's insanely high violent crime rate.

I've also heard that Singapore is a fairly easy country to immigrate to as it is facing a population shortage due to the fact that the country has a low birthrate, so it actively encourages immigration. Singapore is a thoroughly modern advanced Western nation where English is one of the official languages.

I've entertained the idea of moving to both countries.

It seems as if it's kind of easy for an American to come and work in Sweden- most people speak English, and we are usually very curious about your country. Have a go for it!

Obviously the big English speaking countries...

Australia
Canada
Ireland
New Zealand
UK

I have a friend who just moved to Ecuador (he's fluent in Spanish) and absolutely loves it there. He says that the country is beautiful, the people are friendly, the cost of living is dirt cheap, etc.

Also, I think any place in Scandanavia or Western Europe would be nice.

I would never have said Australia but my cousin is 28, no qualifications, doesn't have a job to go to and has debt here in the UK, his girlfriend is going to be a nurse there, anyway he got his visa through yesterday only after 2months of waiting I couldnt believe he got it, its a shame I dont want to move to Australia myself.

I've just been reading up on that also (would like to be able to consider Scotland), and it does appear quite difficult. We are of Scottish and English descent, but it seems you cannot get an Ancestry Visa unless your Grandparents were nationals. I miss it by one stinking generation!
