In Myanmar, English teachers earn between K900,000 and K23,000,000 kyats ($600 – $2,000 USD) per month, depending on the type of school and whether accommodation is provided or not.
A large portion of the teaching market is based around volunteering, however, there are still private language centers and international schools which provide paid positions.
The vast majority of open positions are at language centers, and while they pay less, the hours are more flexible and requirements lower. International schools pay more, but you’ll face more competition, and teachers are expected to work more hours and have a stronger set of qualifications.
Even though the cost of living is quite low, rent prices can be pretty steep. For example, in Yangon (where most job opportunities are) the rent is an average of $500 per month. Thankfully, many schools provide housing to their English teachers.
