4 Countries Where You Can Teach English Without a Degree in Asia

Asia is possibly the largest market in the world for English language teaching. I personally taught in Asia for 5 years and loved it. Jobseekers will be glad to know that there is a booming demand for English teachers in this part of the world. Many of the countries in East and Southeast Asia have seen rapid growth and development over recent years, and are increasingly looking to strengthen international ties, using English as a lingua franca. Asian culture also places a lot of importance on education, and there are many opportunities to teach children as well as business professionals.

If you’re looking to save money while teaching abroad, Asia is probably the best place to look. In many Asian countries you can expect your monthly salary to comfortably exceed your expenditure, so you can enjoy a great quality of life while also being able to put some money away. As well as the salary, many schools in Asia include a whole host of perks in your package, such as accommodation, health insurance, reimbursed airfare, paid vacation time and assistance with your visa and work permits. Without further ado, here’s my pick of the top 5 countries to teach English in Asia without a degree.

Cambodia

This South East Asian country is best-known for the spectacular Angkor Wat temple complex. Most of the teaching jobs are found in the capital, Phnom Penh, and in Siem Reap.

I carried on as normal but had been to the clinic just the day before

What’s great about teaching in Cambodia?

Cambodia is popular with tourists and expats alike for its easy-going pace of life and affordable cost of living. On a typical teacher’s salary, you can easily afford to rent a decent apartment, eat out often and take trips during the school holidays. You can expect to save about $100-$300 USD/month without too much trouble. Phnom Penh and Siem Reap have established expat communities, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities for meeting people and socializing.

What’s not so great about teaching in Cambodia?

Cambodia is a developing country and one of the poorest countries in the world, so it can be challenging at times. The infrastructure is poor and the visible social inequality can be distressing. However, there are lots of opportunities to get involved with charity work and volunteering if you choose to do so.

Essential Info on Teaching in Cambodia

Visa: Buy a 30-day Business (E) visa on arrival and your employer will help you to extend it. Your employer will also help you to obtain a work permit.

Hiring season: Schools in Cambodia hire all year round.

Contract length: Initial contracts are typically 6 or 12 months.

Age groups: In Cambodia you can teach adults or children.

Salary: $700 – $1,000 USD.

Kazakhstan

When you think of Asia, you might not immediately think of Kazakhstan, but if you don’t like hot weather and want to get off the beaten track then it could be just the ticket. Kazakhstan is the largest landlocked country in the world and boasts the second-coldest capital city in the world, Astana, where temperatures drop to -30°C in the depths of winter.

What’s great about teaching in Kazakhstan?

Although you might be daunted by the climate, you will find that Kazakhstan’s cities are well equipped to deal with extreme temperatures. Expats report that as long as you dress for the weather, it isn’t too much of an issue. Utilities are cheap, so you needn’t worry about a sky-high heating bill. There are active communities of expats in Almaty and Astana, but you will also find Kazakhstanis friendly and welcoming, and there are plenty of opportunities for socializing and meeting people. In Kazakhstan, you could earn up to $1,500 USD/month and may get free housing and/or reimbursed airfare.

What’s not so great about teaching in Kazakhstan?

While basic food and utilities are pretty cheap, other products such as foreign food and imported clothing can be expensive, meaning that the cost of living overall is quite high. Another disadvantage is that the capital, Astana, is quite isolated and it takes quite a long flight to get anywhere.

Essential Info on Teaching in Kazakhstan

Visa: You should obtain a work visa in advance – consult your nearest Embassy of Kazakhstan for more information.

Hiring season: Schools in Kazakhstan recruit all year round.

Contract length: Contracts are typically 12 months.

Age groups: In Kazakhstan there are opportunities for teaching adults or children.

Salary: $400 – $1,500 USD, some free housing and/or reimbursed flights.

Kyrgyzstan

Another option for those wanting to step off the beaten track is Kyrgyzstan, a tiny, mountainous country in Central Asia and formerly part of the Soviet Union.

What’s great about teaching in Kyrgyzstan?

Kyrgyzstan is considered one of the safest countries in Central Asia. There is a small community of expats in the capital, Bishkek. The cost of living is low – you could live on as little as $400/month – so your salary should allow you to live comfortably. Some employers also offer accommodation as part of your package. In your free time, you can enjoy skiing and hiking in Kyrgyzstan’s beautiful mountains.

What’s not so great about teaching in Kyrgyzstan?

The low cost of living goes hand-in-hand with low average salaries, so you may not be able to save much money. Expats say that the biggest challenge with living in Kyrgyzstan is the culture of corruption and bribery. In daily life you may be randomly stopped by police who check your documents and then ask for a bribe, although this is generally quite a small amount of money and more of an inconvenience than a real issue.

Essential Info on Teaching in Kyrgyzstan

Visa: If you plan to work in Kyrgyzstan you should get the appropriate visa from a Kyrgyzstan Embassy before you travel. Your employer will be able to assist you with any necessary paperwork.

Hiring season: Schools in Kyrgyzstan hire all year round.

Contract length: Initial contracts are typically 6 or 12 months.

Age groups: In Kyrgyzstan, work is available teaching adults or children.

Salary: $400 – $800 USD, some free housing.

Laos

Laos is sometimes overlooked on the Southeast Asia circuit but has much to offer teachers who choose to make their home there.

Teaching abroad in Laos

Teaching English abroad in Laos could be a good option for you!

What’s great about teaching in Laos?

Laos is a beautiful and peaceful country with year-round warm weather. The main allure is the gorgeous unspoilt landscape, with its lush rice paddies and thick jungles. Also, the cost of living is low – you could live on as little as $500 USD/month. Laos has a famously sleepy vibe and relaxed pace of life. The main cities, Vientiane and Pakse, have small communities of expats so you’ll have some options for meeting people and socializing. During your school holidays, you can easily take a short flight to visit neighboring Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia or Myanmar.

What’s not so great about teaching in Laos?

You may not be able to save much on a typical teacher’s salary in Laos, although you should at least break even. The main challenge about living in Laos is that it is a poor and undeveloped country, so you may find that you don’t have all of the home comforts that you are used to.

Essential Info on Teaching in Laos

Visa: You may enter Laos on a tourist visa and your employer can help you to apply for the work visa once you have started employment. Find your nearest embassy here.

Age groups: Teach adults or children.

Salary: $500 – $1,000 USD.

5 Countries Where You Can Teach English Without a Degree in Latin America

If you don’t fancy teaching in Asia, another place you could look is Latin America. The quality of life is steadily rising in many countries in South America, Central America and some parts of the Caribbean. These countries are also seeking to integrate with the global marketplace and therefore the demand for English language teaching is growing, although the market isn’t quite as big as Asia. The main advantage of teaching in Latin America is that most countries don’t require you to have a bachelor’s degree (although they may state that this is preferred).

In Latin America, you can expect your salary to cover your living expenses so that you can live a comfortable lifestyle, but you may not be able to save much. Housing and airfare are not typically subsidised by your employer and salaries can be roughly equal to the cost of living.

In Latin America, there are more opportunities to teach adult students than children, but that’s not to say that you won’t be able to find work teaching children if you have your heart set on it. Here’s my rundown of the top five countries to teach English in Latin America without a degree.

Argentina

Argentina is one of the largest job markets for English language teaching in South America, so there’s sure to be an opportunity for you.

The teaching workload is typically light, and you can expect to teach around 20-25 hours per week.

What’s not so great about teaching in Argentina?

Although your salary will cover your expenses, wages are not very high, so you may not be able to save any money while working in Argentina. However, you can bump up your earnings by teaching English online or doing private tuition, which will give you some extra spending money.

What’s not so great about teaching in Brazil?

The average monthly cost of living is roughly equal to the average monthly salary in Brazil, so you can expect to break even but may not save much money. Most English language schools in Brazil do not interview teachers by phone and will prefer you to attend a face-to-face interview, so your job search may involve some legwork.

The capital, San Jose, has great nightlife, colourful markets and a lively expat community so you won’t be short of people to meet.

What’s not so great about teaching in Costa Rica?

You may not manage to save much money while teaching in Costa Rica as the salary is not very high compared to the cost of living. Another challenge is that earthquakes are not uncommon in Costa Rica and you would have to carefully consider how this would affect you before deciding to work there.

What’s not so great about teaching in Mexico?
