We offer teaching placements in three different countries in Asia- All of these countries are unique and offer a wonderful glimpse into a different world-Thailand, South Korea and China.
Thailand: Thailand is a popular destination for teachers who are interested in gaining a valuable cultural experience. Thailand embraces a rich diversity of cultures and traditions, and prides itself on rich history, tropical climate, and renowned hospitality. However, Thailand is much more than just a place with beautiful islands and beaches, enchanting temples, great climate, cheap shopping, and friendly people. Thailand is without a doubt one of the most exotic destinations in Asia.
Korea: Korea is a dynamic country where old meets new and a centuries-old heritage coexist with cutting-edge technology. Although less known than neighbouring China and Japan, Korea is a culturally diverse and economically advanced country full of dynamism. Building upon incredible post-war economic growth, Korea is the 12th largest economy in the world, and is becoming a powerful focal point of the Asian economic block. It is a global leader in information technology and the home of such global enterprises as Samsung, Hyundai, and LG. Teaching is an amazing opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, while experiencing the rich culture of the Eastern world.
China: Is an amazing place to teach English and explore a culture that is really just opening its doors to the world. Teaching English in China is a rewarding experience but you need patience and open-mindedness. Teaching jobs in China are plentiful but finding a professional and well-organized institution can be challenging. Time spent in this culturally and visually stimulating country is truly a unique experience and well worth it. Teaching in China does not necessarily offer a great deal of money, but if you’re looking to work in some of the most unique destinations in the world, then read on.

Do I have to have a degree to do this program?
You do not need to have a degree to teach in Thailand but one is required for South Korea and China.
How long are typical teaching posts?
Typical placements are 12 months in length but sometimes one can do it from 6 months.
Do I need any vaccinations?
What is the cost of living like?
Generally, it is quite inexpensive throughout compared to most western countries. Living in larger cities though like Bangkok, Seoul or Shanghai is expensive! One earns the most in South Korea.
Do I need to speak the local language?
No you don’t. Actually, most schools prefer that you don’t speak the local language when you teach. You’ll be teaching back-to-back with a teacher so they will be doing all the local dialect speaking speaking. Your purpose is to take the lessons and apply them, in English, in ways that can be educating and entertaining for the students.
