Teaching English in Kazakhstan

It is a country which not many people have heard of or at least don’t know much about. Kazakhstan is a landlocked Central Asian country which borders Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. It is a former Soviet state but it gained independence in 1991. 
Kazakhstan’s mystery lies in the fact that it has continuously evolved through its history and its associations with different countries, including Russia. It has large oil and natural gas reserves and recently this has led to a huge influx of capital. As a result, new cities are springing up and more and more business opportunities are developing. 
If you’re not keen on city life, then are many, smaller mountain or desert towns or villages based around markets. For fun in Kazakhstan you hike mountains, visit museums or experience falcon hunting. If you are keen to go somewhere a little bit alternative, consider the home of cosmodrome site which is where the first manned orbital flight by Yuri Gagarin took place. 
Cuisine in Kazakhstan might not appeal to all tastes, especially vegetarians. The typical diet consists of mostly meat and vegetables and everything seems to have a slightly meaty flavour. A popular speciality is horse meat or horse sausage, washed down with some vodka or Kumyuan – fermented camel’s milk. There is a large Korean population here so it’s easy to find Asian-inspired restaurants.

Teaching Opportunities

As one of the fastest-growing economies in Central Asia, education in Kazakhstan is becoming more and more important. There are many new international schools to cater for the children of more well-off citizens. Positions at these schools are usually well paid and the contract conditions are good: flights are paid for, accommodation provided and often a settling-in allowance is given. You need to be responsible for applying for your visa but your employer should assistance with this.
Kazakhstan is definitely the new kid on the block when it comes to TEFL, but you’ll be surprised how many job opportunities there are and how lucrative they can be, provided you can deal with a lifestyle and culture that’s probably quite different from yours. If adventure’s your thing, think Kazakhstan.

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...
