The Best TEFL Jobs in the World
At the beginning of 2014, I started to post a list of the best TEFL jobs around the world. I choose these jobs based on money and here are the reasons why I did that. It’s true that money isn't everything so I have another list of popular countries around the world that you might consider teaching in if money isn't your main motivation:
I like organizing information and looking for good jobs is one of my hobbies. By posting a list of some of the best jobs around the world, I hope to let teachers know that there really are well-paying TEFL jobs out there. Here are some of the places I would recommend teaching in:
The small country of Brunei has many perks for teachers. The good location and safety also help draw teachers there.
China is an up-and-coming TEFL destination. While Korea and Japan are becoming saturated with TEFL teachers, China is a huge country meaning that there’s less competition. The low cost of living means that you can live pretty well too. Housing, insurance, and flights are often included.
Colombia is a gorgeous country and salaries are pretty good compared to the low cost of living.
Korea has been a top destination for a long time. Perks and benefits include housing, flights, insurance, and pension.
Tutoring can be very lucrative in Russia and it’s easy to supplement your salary.
Teaching online means that you can teach anywhere and supplement your main salary.
Schools with Branches around the World
If you get a job with an employer that has schools around the world it’s easy to change countries while maintaining job stability.
I really enjoyed putting together my list of the best TEFL jobs around the world. I have posts coming out this month about teacher self-evaluations, the salary myth, online doctorates, and mid-term student evals over at TEFL-Tips. I’ve been TEFLing for 12 years and blogging for about 7. It’s neat to see how much the TEFL community has changed during this time. I plan on teaching for many more years and I’m excited to see what the future brings.
