Sydney is a glamorous collusion of beaches, boutiques and bars.

Teaching English in Australia

Australia, Oz, Down Under. What an intriguing country! From kangaroos to koalas, Bondi to barbecue, surfing to Sydney, Australia is a country of great beauty, interesting culture and fantastic opportunities. 
Australia is a surfer’s paradise, a heaven for the adventurous and a haven for culture lovers. One day you could be soaking up the sun on one of the many gorgeous beaches on the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, the next you could be enjoying a tour of the Sydney Opera House. You could go road tripping to Margaret River to enjoy one of Australia’s best food and wine destinations or you could be scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. And let’s not forget the breathtaking sight of Uluru at sunset.
But apart from all its natural beauty, Australia is an interesting mix of modernity and tradition. The history of the aboriginal people is an important part of this culture and is apparent in its traditional food, music and festivals. The didgeridoo (a trumpet-like wooden wind instrument) is an example of how the Aboriginal culture is still a part of modern-day Australia.

Teaching Opportunities

The TEFL sector is strong in Australia and there are plenty of job opportunities for teachers, especially in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. However, rules and regulations are strict here so you’ll need to be qualified and preferably experienced. There are loads of private language schools and, due to visa restrictions for many nationalities, a constant flow of teachers, so there are always vacancies. However, the very nature of language schools means that you are paid an hourly rate and your hours may vary month to month.
The state runs the Adult Migrant Education Program and the Department of Technical and Further Education runs English courses for permanent Australian residents with non-English-speaking backgrounds. You might find yourself teaching children, adult migrants, indigenous people or international students from all over the world. 
Are you looking for a position in a place where the people are friendly, the weather is good and the pay is generous? Look no further than Australia.

My advice to those who are thinking about teaching abroad is just go for it!

When I finished university in July 2013, I was all for getting a graduate job and settling down into a 9-5 lifestyle. However, due to the evident current job climate, this didn’t happen. After graduation, I moved back in with my parents and found a...
