Teaching English in Madagascar

Madagascar is the fourth-largest island in the world, situated in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa. It has a colourful history involving pygmies, Polynesian migrants, Bornean sailors, Arabian traders and French, Portuguese and British settlers, so you can imagine the fascinating cultural complexity of the island. 
Not only can Madagascar offer a melting pot of cultural practices and traditions, it has an amazing array of flora and fauna too. Madagascar is most famous for its populations of lemurs but these are by no means the full extent of the island’s diversity: chameleons, tortoises and iguanas all call Madagascar home. It further boasts a dramatic forest landscape with the peculiar-looking baobab and aloe trees. In fact, Madagascar is often referred to as the 8th continent by ecologists because over 80% of the species found on the island are not found anywhere else in the world.
If you’re looking for some adventure, Madagascar can offer gorgeous beaches where you can snorkel the coral reefs, and bustling markets where you can buy spices; it is especially known for its coffee and vanilla. For those interested in trying new cuisines, the seafood salad should not be missed. So while Madagascar can be, on the one hand, a relaxing beach escape, it can also be a glimpse into a fascinating historical mix of cultures and peoples.

Teaching Opportunities

Malagasy is the main language spoken in Madagascar, though some French is also spoken. In 2003 the government introduced the teaching of English in primary schools and since then the need for English instruction has increased dramatically, making teaching positions readily available. Besides primary schools, you are also able to find language schools and education centres for adult learners.
There is a big volunteer market here but you are still able to find paid positions. The bonus with jobs here is that you will probably be given accommodation, as well as an assistant teacher to help you out in the classroom.

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...
