TEFL Academy’s online TEFL courses have become very popular in
recent times because teaching English has evolved to become one of
the most popular professions in the world. In this age of
globalization, communication has become easy between different parts
of the world. Technological advancements like the internet have
further facilitated this process. The boundaries of mankind have
thus, expanded and in order to excel or further one’s social,
economic, educational or professional affairs, the need to reach out
beyond the geographical territories of one’s country has become
essential. In such an age, English has risen as the global language
and serves as the primary medium in which people of different
nationalities and mother-tongues communicate. The Asian countries
are not an exception in this case and even in this continent English
has emerged as the language of the economy.
This phenomenon has obviously given rise to a huge English teaching job market all over the world. A larger number of people are relocating and applying for teaching English jobs abroad so that they can visit and Asia hosts some of the most developing countries like China, Thailand and Korea. These countries have been doing extremely well in the industrial fields and have carved out for themselves an important place in the world economic structure. But all these countries are essentially non-English speaking nations and they are quick to realize that their growth can be stunted if they don’t educate themselves in English language and reach out further in the world. Hence, they hire trained non-native as well as native English teachers.
Teaching English jobs abroad provide an entry to different countries in the world, which is otherwise a little difficult to get and also provides the necessary financial support. Taking up teaching English jobs abroad provide a fantastic opportunity to learn about different societies, cultures, religions and people. It is an enriching experience to interact with the locals on a personal basis and get a first-hand experience of a different world.
English teaching jobs in Asia is currently booming with the coming
of ASEAN. There is a huge demand of English teachers especially in
countries like Thailand and Vietnam. ESL teachers can have a
lucrative teaching career in most of the countries in Asia. The
teaching profession is not just limited to foreigners as local
people with good command over English language are also hired by
schools. In Vietnam and Thailand, the teachers can earn more than
1000$ per month along with other benefits. The ESL jobs are
available in schools, colleges, universities and also corporate
offices. Teachers are hired by private organizations as well as
state run schools. For teaching English in Thailand or Vietnam, the

recognized TESOL or TEFL certificate.
As English teachers in the Asian countries, the teachers will not just earn a living but can have adventure and experience of their life time. It is best way to explore vibrant cultures, taste exotic food and travel to some of the most gorgeous destinations.
