7 Unlikely Places You Can Teach English Abroad

Posted on by anthony

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

 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

 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

 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

 

 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.

Google Map Updates

Posted on by anthony

At LTC we try to use the web to provide as much information as possible to our students before they arrive. The idea is to ‘open a window’ onto the experience they’ll have in the UK at our schools in London, Brighton and Eastbourne. We believe that this means that students will arrive in the UK better prepared, more excited and also a little less nervous about their stay!

So if it’s information about the nearest coffee shop to the school for coffee addicts, the nearest place to play tennis for those inspired by Wimbledon, or the location of their homestay, our Google Maps are a great place to start the search for information.

LTC Brighton was the first school to integrate its Google Map into pre-arrival information for this summer. You can find our map at http://bit.ly/ltc-b-map so far we’ve had over 600 clicks.

London’s map can be found at http://bit.ly/ltc-l-map and Eastbourne’s http://bit.ly/ltc-e-map

We’ve just updated all the icons on the maps to make them more user friendly. Happy clicking!

2011 to 2012 A busy year and then a birthday year

Posted on by anthony

2011 was a very busy year for LTC. We taught over 7000 students in London, Brighton and Eastbourne and welcomed over 250 study-tour groups from around the world. We also relocated our London school to a larger modernised building in Ealing, West London. You can find our more about London’s courses, including its new afternoon general English courses and part time classes on this website.

2012 will move the focus to LTC Brighton, which is undergoing a makeover for its 40th birthday. The school first opened its doors as an Inlingua school in 1972. We don’t know how many students have been taught at Portland Road in 40 years but a conservative estimate would be 50,000, probably many many more.

In the meantime, you can find our 2012 course and price information on this website.
