If you are considering finding a TEFL job in South East Asia, and your credentials are not equal to those of your competition – particularly if you are applying for a TEFL job in Japan, China or South Korea – you may want to consider a TEFL job in Cambodia.
The requirements for a TEFL job in Cambodia are significantly more relaxed compared with those of other more popular South East Asian countries. Whereas most countries require a degree and/or a TEFL, ESL or EFL certificate, Cambodia does not. Cambodia is a significantly cheaper place to live than most of South East Asia. A TEFL teacher can live very comfortably – considering the low rent, inexpensive food, cheap transportation (you must try a ride in a tuk-tuk) and an atmosphere that rivals any place in Asia. A novice teacher with no credentials can expect to make between US $1000 to $1200 per month – more than enough to enjoy a fairly lavish lifestyle in this incredible country. With more experience and better credentials, an ESL teacher with a TEFL job in Cambodia will make considerably more at an international school. Read More
