How to Begin Teaching in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is south Asia's greenest jewel

Bangladesh is not the most obvious destination for TEFL teachers in comparison to its neighbours in South East Asia because the majority of its teachers speak fluent English, but there are still opportunities in this interesting country.

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. At first glance it is poor and dirty, but you will find some hidden surprises if you stay long enough. The capital city of Dhaka showcases events of historical significance of the country with its forts, palaces and monuments while Chittagong is the place to go to experience the ethnic diversity of the country, not to mention its beautiful coastline. You can also hang out at the longest beach in the world (125 km), catch up with the emerging surf scene in Sonadia Island, wander around the world’s largest mangrove forest, visit tea estates or go on a boat tour in the hopes of seeing one of the world’s few remaining Royal Bengal tigers.

Teaching Opportunities:
In Bangladesh, there are international schools which offer paid or volunteer positions and a few language schools like the British Council where you could try find a teaching job. The majority of teaching opportunities are in the big cities of Chaka and Chittagong.
