Bangladesh Job Listings

Bangladesh is a country that only became independent in 1971, when the Bengali-speaking area of East Pakistan ceded from a union with the Punjabi-speaking West Pakistan. The independent nation became known as Bangladesh and has borders with India and Myanmar, whilst also sitting on the shores of the Bay of Bengal to its south. If you find a TEFL job in Bangladesh, you can enjoy a sub-tropical climate which is hit by the region’s monsoon season in the months of June and July.

Bangladesh is a country famous for being crisscrossed with rivers, and taking a trip down some of these is a must-do experience. Nothing beats the feeling of arriving at your destination via the quiet back door of a river, rather than through the mayhem of the overcrowded streets to the front. Although the bordering India and Myanmar are growing as tourist destinations, Bangladesh is still very much off the mainstream tourist routes.

Outside of Dhaka, foreign visitors are still a rare sight and you can enjoy the opportunity to walk down paths and see sites that not many visitors will have done before. Unlike many countries in Asia where the locals can sometimes look upon foreigners with both intrigue, but also perhaps ulterior motives, the interest and friendliness that the people show towards you in Bangladesh is genuine. When you mix the wonderful nature of the people with the incredible, green nature of the land itself, it makes for a simply stunning combination.

TEFL teachers in Bangladesh typically have a different outlook on life and its experiences than the regular crowd, and it is definitely a quality that can help you make the most of your time here. As an area that, despite having a long history, doesn’t have a long list of must-see sites and also which hasn’t developed much infrastructure or a tourist industry, it is somewhere that is best experienced like a good glass of wine. Take in the aromas, the colours and the great company before relaxing and enjoying the flavours at your own pace. Spend a relaxing day sitting down and enjoying the vibrant colours of the capital or the peacefulness of people practising yoga on a rooftop. Alternatively, head out onto the streets of Dhaka in one of the million-plus rickshaws patrolling the streets of the city, and just absorb the whirlwind of life happening around you at street level.

Bangladesh offers a slightly different challenge for EFL teachers than many other countries. Most native English teachers in Bangladesh are already fluent speakers and there is little formal EFL structure or industry to speak of in the country either. There are opportunities to get involved in teacher training, however, and also in English-medium schools.

It takes a self-starting type of person to create a role for themselves as an English teacher in Bangladesh, and most who find success start out on a tourist visa whilst establishing themselves. If you are looking for something challenging and unpredictable, whilst putting your experience and TEFL certificate to a slightly different use than other teachers, Bangladesh could well be the destination you are looking for.
