Teaching English Abroad

I teach at an urban school in the USA and want to die. Since I can't get a job in the suburbs, I've thought about going abroad for a while. If I started sending resumes to jobs in Korea, Taiwan, and Spain, how long does it typically take to process a visa and background check? I want the quickest process possible.

    Have you considered that being an English teacher in Asia puts you at the lowest possible rung of the social ladder? If you hate your life now, it's going to get worse

          What were you honestly thinking becoming a teacher in the United States? Of course everyone wants to teach in the suburbs, do you think someone with seniority is hankering to spend their days rotting at Martin Luther King Jr. High?

          Why do you think Teach for America has to lure impressionable young college graduates with fancy jackets and social justice propaganda, like they're gonna be Jesuits spreading the word of God in a savage land?

          Your only choice is to teach abroad at this point, at least until you grow a brain and learn to code or study for the LSAT...

          Hello friend, how are you? Have you been taking your meds lately? You've been all worked up.

            Ayy lmao, good points. There's a reason why there's a teaching shortage in this country. It's been a redpilling but soul-draining experience.

              There's no teacher shortage in the usa there's a surplus, but I love seeing teachers suffer they deserve everything they get. They are overpaid, underworld and spend their days promoting chudism, homosexuality, sexism, racism and hate. Fire 75% of them and go back to teaching reading and math

                Teachers are literally scum, they spent the last 3 years refusing to work and if they did forced children to wear masks and inject poison. Even before then teachers only worked half the year and didn't do anything but give social promotions to kids that never turned in any assignments nor passed any test. Now because of their lazy cowardice there's a generation of literal retard artists who are even worse than zoomies

      According to who? English teachers in Korea make the same as a starting office job and get free rent on top of it.
      Besides, there's fast food workers, retail jobs, factory jobs, taxi drivers, and many more. Being a Hagwon teacher certainly isn't high, but it isn't low either.

        They are just coping. Probably some SWE butthurt because they are the actual bottom of the society trash. Nobody needs their useless ~~*programming*~~, which is copy pasting scripts from github for $2M a year. Teachers do actual work, and teaching someone is very hard if you want to do it right.

          Teaching 200 kids a day in UK schools is hard. Especially when your department is full of old women with 2:2's from the 70's.

    I also taught in public school before teaching abroad. Taiwan gives Americans instant visas for travel. A work Visa shouldn't take more than a few weeks.

    Depends on the time of year that you start sending out resumes. If you are applying from the USA, you're looking at about three months to get interviewed, hired and your visas settled if you apply in late autumn or late spring. Outside those seasons, you might wait longer. Start dates are usually in early spring/late summer.
    But I think a more important point is you absolutely should not consider doing TEFL as a licensed teacher unless you have zero public school teaching experience, zero experience teaching non-native English speaking students, and zero experience living in another country. If you've got at least two of those, then you should be applying as a subject or grade teacher at foreign schools. Unless you just want a no-brainer job that you can do for a year while fucking local women and drinking most nights. Go ahead and do TEFL if that's your goal - at least you've got an escape hatch via being a licensed teacher. You can explain the TEFL segue with some SJW-sounding explanation.

      Sounds pretty based to me after all the crap I've dealt with. Do subject/grade teachers make more money?

      I also taught in public school before teaching abroad. Taiwan gives Americans instant visas for travel. A work Visa shouldn't take more than a few weeks.

      You still in Taiwan now? I'm seeing companies claim you can come on a tourist visa while you wait for the work one, but that seems sketchy.

        Yes, generally speaking. Consider what this anon

        Go work at an international school in China. You'll make retarded amounts of money in comparison to the COL if you don't go live in a tier 1 city. Like, you'll make $70,000 USD and your 2 bedroom apartment will be $200 a month rent. Food is dirt cheap. Alcohol is dirt cheap. Amazing nightlife. Also, not as low on the social ladder as a TEFL teacher.

        Everyone is saying Taiwan or Korea and sure, but you will always be lower-middle income, at best (same in a tier 1 Chinese city like Beijing or Shenzhen though). In a city like Chonqing or Changsha you will be comparatively RICH. (BTW Changsha is my favourite city in China, tier 1 cities are incredibly overrated).

        China is opening up, and as long as you aren't too into politics you'll do great. I would most definitely be moving to China if I was a teacher; unfortunately I can't really do that due to my career trajectory.

        says about China. I can't speak for China, but in Vietnam you'll earn 30-40m VND/month at an English center but you can pull 100m at an international school. (Personally, I wouldn't pick China for teaching if you can get similar work elsewhere. China is a capricious country.)

      Yeah but most of us dont meet the requirements to work at an international school. You need to be an actually qualified teacher back home to get those jobs.

      Are you sure about this? I think it's fairly consistent that international schools pay top dollar for good licensed teachers wherever you go.

      I've seen people save like £3000 a month easily after tax / expenses.

        Yeah as long as you have experience you can get paid pretty well. Vietnam is also about $3,000 a month or more, which is pretty good since the cost of living is cheap.

    You need to compete with people who have no teaching certificate (a real one, anyway) and no experience.

    It is shit.
