Are you a young professional interested in moving abroad to work? Are you farther along in your career but looking for a change of pace and lifestyle? This book is meant to show you that a year or more teaching abroad is well within your reach! With as little as one month of teacher training, you'll be a viable candidate for teaching jobs throughout Southeast Asia, which will allow you to earn enough to live comfortably in your home city and even to travel throughout the region in your time off.
Moving abroad is a stressful subject to think about, and is surrounded by uncertainty. Things are even more uncertain concerning the countries of Southeast Asia. You're sure to have lots of questions about how long it will take you to find a job, what qualifications you'll need, how much you'll earn, and how much you'll spend. Will you be able to find an apartment with WIFI? Will you be safe? Will you be able to find a decent hospital if you get sick? These are all things that many people wonder about if they haven't been to the region before. This book is meant to give you accurate information based on the author's experience living and traveling throughout the region, interviews with over 20 teachers throughout the three countries, and extensive online research as well.
This book is also meant to save you time as you search for the best information about teaching in Southeast Asia. You can spend hours combing through scattered blog posts about what it's like to teach in each country. You'll find lots of stories about what people had for dinner. Everyone will tell you how cute their students are. But what you won't find is accurate and clearly presented information about the things you need to know most - how each country is alike and different from the others. This guide gives you more information about how much you'll spend from day to day in each country, what kinds of things you'll be able to do in your free time, how easy it will be to find a job, and how much you can expect to earn.
Another big feature of this guide is an extensive list of schools and teacher placement agencies in each country. Many schools can be difficult to find through a simple Google search, but extensive research has been done to present the most comprehensive list of language schools in each country where you can look for work.
In short, this book is meant to give you the practical information and insight you need to follow in the footsteps of tens of thousands of teachers who have happily lived and worked in Southeast Asia. You'll learn how to get qualified, how to look for a job, what to expect when you come abroad, and even how to build your career and further your education while living abroad. Whether you plan to teach abroad during your gap year, during a break between jobs, or as a longer-term career change, this book will help prepare you for a fun and productive year abroad.
