Reasons to Get a Job In Asia

Globalization has never been stronger with China becoming a superpower in the world. This connection will proceed to draw economies and governments near and far closer together in just about every manner. The one remaining obstacle is understanding the language.

Will I be able to teach English without a degree? The answer is yes for China as long as you're a TEFL course graduate because of their huge demand. Other countries where people who do not have a four-year degree can be taught are Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, Philippines, and Vietnam. While in other Asian countries like Japan, Korea or Thailand, even though you have a TEFL certificate, not graduating college will not get you into a school. However, you are able to teach independently but only do so if the law allows.

Isn't it a problem that I don't speak any Asian language? Not really. The most effective method to learn a foreign language is for students to learn from a native speaker of that language. This type of immersion helps the students to grasp the lessons and acquire the common everyday slang, metaphors, and expressions from the teacher. As a result, the demand for native English teachers in Asia is very high to teach adults and children.

China, Korea, Japan, Thailand, and several other Asian countries sponsor thousands of teachers every year for an opportunity to teach, as well as experience the cultural places of interest you've only dreamed about seeing.
