Your Regional Guide to TESOL Planet Teaching Overseas
Below are some regional guides to the world of TESOL Planet teaching. When considering where in the world you want to teach English, the big 3 for TESOL Planet jobs are:
Asia: Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia are the popular spots because they have so many TESOL Planet jobs available. In addition, there are always positions coming up infrequently in places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia though you must be a qualified teacher to obtain these. You may even find positions for Cambodia and Laos but you should look at the reputation of TESOL Planet schools carefully due to lack of a solid legal system for recourse.
Europe: Everyone dreams of teaching English in Greece, Italy, France or Spain but unless you are an European Union (EU) citizen it is difficult to obtain these teaching positions. The more frequent TESOL Planet jobs are available in Eastern Europe in places like Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine and Russia. These positions don't pay very well by western standards but they provide a lot of opportunity for travel while not teaching.
The Middle East: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates (UAE) are the most common with Bahrain, Yemen and Qatar occasionally having TESOL Planet job openings. Now there are also more teaching positions available in Iraq. The Middle East is popular for the money paid for teaching positions but don't expect much of a social life due to cultural restraints.
