7 Unlikely Places You Can Teach English Abroad

So, you’ve decided that you want to teach English as an additional language abroad but where on earth (literally) should you go? Before you rush into a decision, it’s worth considering all the possible options. Yes, we have all thought about Italy, France, Mexico and Japan, but here are some other ideas to take you out of your comfort zone that might not have previously been on your radar.

1. Pakistan

Although undergoing various domestic troubles in recent years, Pakistan, particularly the north of the country, should be considered a viable teaching option. If you have a love of mountainous treks, rich and spicy food, and you’re looking for a low cost of living, Pakistan should certainly be worth some consideration.


2. Chile

South American teaching jobs are often very popular, however they are rarely the best paid. Chile is considered one of the more generous when it comes to teaching in Latin America. In addition to a healthy salary, Chile is a truly fascinating country with incredible cities and a rich history.


3. Morocco

This North African country might be heavily influenced by France but in recent years it has become much more important to speak English. This is especially true in some of its more modern cities, such as Casablanca, and there is now a big demand for English teachers.


4. Mongolia

Located in Central Asia, Mongolia is one of the least densely populated countries on the planet. Teaching jobs are on the rise here and, if you fancy experiencing throat singers, Buddhism and the Gobi Desert, this is the place for you. The pay is certainly not the best but you get to live somewhere completely unique and almost untouched by the English language teaching community.


5. Kyrgyzstan

Like Mongolia, there is a burgeoning market for English language in this Central Asian country. Kyrgyzstan is looking to increase its tourism trade, which requires it to embrace the English language. Perhaps surprisingly, pay in Kyrgyzstan can be relatively high.



6. Azerbaijan

Acting as a crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Azerbaijan is a great option when it comes to teaching English abroad. The country is looking to move away from the Russian language and embrace English for international trade. If you can teach business English you’ll be held in particularly high regard.



7. Bhutan

The King of Bhutan made English the official language of instruction here and, therefore, this landlocked Asian country always has plenty of English jobs going. You can be forgiven for not knowing much about Bhutan but it’s a beautiful, forward-thinking country, which is in the midst of exciting developments.

Letter from Buckingham Palace

It’s not every day you get a letter from Buckingham Palace, but we received one this morning.  A could of weeks ago, as part of a class project, some of our Colombian students from Colegio San Bartolome in Bogota wrote letters to the Queen.

They were thrilled this morning when we got a reply from the Queen’s Lady-in-Waiting.  And what a nice reply it was!

LTC Eastbourne’s 60th Anniversary

This year LTC Eastbourne is celebrating its 60th anniversary. It has become a landmark destination for international students to learn English in Eastbourne

Compton Place has always been a well-loved destination, even for royalty. It has welcomed many royal guests throughout its 700 years of history including King George III, King George V, our current Queen Elizabeth II, her sister Princess Margaret and a German Princess, Alexandra of Hesse, who later became the last Tsarina

Compton Place first became a ladies residential finishing school in 1954, it opened as LTC Ladies College of English. Apparently ‘LTC‘ stood for Ladies Training College,  but we have never seen this in writing.

As time went on fewer and fewer young girls dreamed of becoming a ‘lady’ and began to train as doctors, lawyers and for other professions. As a result, the demand for LTC’s courses declined.

In 1983, LTC became a language school for boys and girls and has grown to become the school we know today. Last year 3,035 students and 120 groups from 43 different countries came to learn English for an unforgettable learning experience.

Celebrations will take place this September to commemorate LTC Eastbourne’s 60th anniversary. It will be an opportunity for past and present students and staff to reflect on their time at LTC and look forward to many more successful years.
