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.

Lonely Planet on Brighton and Hove

We noticed a link to Lonely Planet’s write-up on our lovely city of Brighton and Hove, and thought we should share!

Our only problem is that they don’t mention what a great place it is for language schools, English courses and of course the home of LTC!

Love Brighton!

Brighton is small enough to get to know in a few days, but big enough to have all the nightlife and entertainment you could want. It’s also so close to London it’s sometimes know as London by the Sea and the culture and buzz of London is only 55 minutes away by train.

The Brighton Tourism department has recently started a blog and a Facebook page all about why people ‘Love Brighton’ and there is also a great Flickr photo album.
