Teaching English in Mongolia

Ah Mongolia! Land of…what exactly? Any idea? This is the beauty of Mongolia, a country so mysterious many people couldn’t find it on a map. It’s a tiny country bordered by Russia and China and it’s one of the least densely populated countries in the world. So while you may not see a lot of people while you are here, what you will see is a lot of vast, open spaces.
In fact, Mongolia is also known as the Land of the Eternal Blue sky: there are more than 250 days of sun in a year. Don’t let the sunshine fool you – the winters are long and cold (temperatures can drop to -40 °C) and the summers short, but at least you won’t suffer from a Vitamin D deficiency. 
So what exactly are the attractions in Mongolia? If you can imagine a place where the nomadic lifestyle is still prevalent, where much of the travel is still done on horseback and the weekend sports are archery and wrestling, then you are on the right track. Mongolia is relatively new to tourism and the country is still very much nomadic and this is the attraction. In terms of food, you can expect a lot of mutton and dumplings and if you’re lucky you will experience a traditional boodog – a goat barbecue where a goat is hunted and cooked (whole with no pot) on hot stones just for you. Another traditional option is staying in a yurt (a traditional hut). So if this is your style, then you should think about Mongolia. 

Teaching Opportunities

Mongolian is spoken in Mongolia and Kazakh in the west, but there are surprisingly numerous teaching opportunities in Mongolia, though most are in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, which is actually quite city-like. It may not be the prettiest city in the world, but it provides an interesting glimpse into the clash of the traditional and the modern in this different country. 
In terms of job opportunities, you could find work in a private school or a language school. The salaries are not very high but neither is the cost of living. Many schools also provide accommodation and flights; some schools might be able to organise you a homestay if you’d really like an authentic experience.

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...
