Why it’s Great to Teach in China

China’s economy is now the world’s second largest economy and the Chinese increasingly need to speak English more fluently in order to capitalize on global opportunities.


This has created a robust demand for language teachers and, as a result, salaries for English teachers in China have also increased rapidly. Yet the cost of living in China is still quite low in comparison to Western countries,


Across China, entry-level teachers, with minimal or no teaching experience, can reasonably expect to make anywhere from $900 to $1900 per month, which has nearly three times the local purchasing power that it would have in the U.S. 


Yet i2 Education salary starts at $2,550—plus benefits!


Teaching salaries in China allow you to live comfortably and explore this vast country at the weekends and during holidays. You can explore China’s unrivaled history and a depth of culture going back thousands of years.

Doing Your TEFL Certification in Bangkok

Bangkok is a great place to do your TEFL.


The City of Angels is special as many Thais from all over the Kingdom come to the capital to work bringing their unique regional culture with them. Bangkok is a melting pot of all things Thai. It’s a great place to get a feel for the entire Siamese culture.


It’s also a fantastic place to eat.  CNN Travel rated it the best place for street food on planet earth. 


And it has excellent accommodation at very competitive prices.

Bangkok—a big city—with a small town feel.
