Recently, more and more people go abarod and teach English in Asia. But there are so many different opportunities, which are hot jobs markets for teaching English in Asia.
China is definitely the first choice. As the deepening of globalization and China’s status in the world, it has a great need for English teachers, because more and more citizens need to learn English well to get a decent job. It’s estimated that there are 300 million Chinene learning English. There is no doubt that it’s the largest job market for teaching English in Asia as it has the world’s most population. Therefore, it’s very easy to get a job there wherever you go. Teachers there can get a very competitve package consisting of high salary,free apartment, airfare reimbursement, medical insurance, free meals, paid holidays, completion bonus,etc. The living cost is relatively low there, so if you want to save more money, this is the place you need to consider. Besides, China is a great country with thousand of years of history and culture. There is a lot for you to explore.
Every city has its charateristics, not only Beijing and Shanghai.
There are also many people go to South Korea because some schools there can provide the flight in advance and the salary is higher. If you don’t have teaching experience, Korea would be a good choice. If you want to find a good job in Korea, I recommend you to study a 170h online tefl certificate. But I have a friend who worked in Korea before, he said the life there is a little boring, there is not much to do except the a few famous places. And the living cost there is high. For example, 1 kg beef is 200RMB, an apple is 50RMB,a watermelon is 200RMB. However in China,1 kg beef is 40RMB, apple is 3-5RMB one kilogram. So you can see the difference.
Many people are attracted to Thailand because of the cheap cost of living , beautiful beaches, good weather and so on. The salary there isn’t high unless you work in a big city like Bangkok or teach in an international school. So if you are not for money, you can go to Thailand. But the internet there is always bad. I also have heard that the country is a little uncooperative if you want to leave there and go to teach in another country, such as China.
There are also other countries for you to teach English in Asia, such as Vietnam, Janpan.. Every country has something for you.
