Teaching English in India

India is a country of curry, cricket and culture. It’s a vibrant, colourful culture with something to suit everybody’s tastes. It has a huge geographical size so you can expect wide variation between the different regions, resulting in different climates, customs and cuisines. It also means that there is a lot to see and do!
Historically a region of trade routes, India is now a thriving economic power, though you can expect to see your fair share of poverty. Don’t be surprised to see tradition and religion sitting comfortably next to technology and business, poverty and homelessness next to well-dressed businessmen and fancy cars. If you can get over the sensory overload, you will start to realise how much India has to offer.
Culturally speaking, there are so many places to go and things to see: stand in awe of the splendour of the Taj Mahal, relax with a fruit shake on the beaches of Goa or hire a houseboat and float lazily down the backwaters of Kerala. For something extremely special, head to the River Ganges. This spiritual home is both beautiful and jarring: while you cruise down the river you will see the locals going about their everyday routines in the river with their buffalo, and on the shore you will notice the ritual cremations – not for the faint-hearted!
India has a spiritual side that is not found in all countries. The Indian population is a religious mix of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. India is a popular choice for travellers who want to get away from the rat race for a while and become more mindful and focused on their inner selves.

Teaching Opportunities

As India was once a part of the Commonwealth, English is widely spoken and the TEFL market is not particularly strong. However, you should be able to find a job in a language school or a private international school, especially in the bigger cities of New Delhi, Jaipur, Bangalore or Mumbai. It is especially helpful if you have a business background or a teaching degree. Schools don’t usually offer flights or accommodation and teaching in India is more for the experience than for saving money as the salaries are quite low. There are numerous volunteering opportunities and these offer you the chance to experience the more traditional side of India.

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...
