As you can choose to teach all around the world, the salaries vary from region to region. You can earn between $2,000-$3,000 per month teaching in China, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan. While in other regions such as Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey, and Cambodia you can earn between $800-$2,000. After you’ve gained a year or two of experience, you could start looking at jobs in the middle east which can pay up to $4,000 per month!
With many teaching jobs you’ll also find some added perks thrown in. It’s not uncommon to have partial or full accommodation included in your contract, along with contract completion bonuses paid after 1 year, and airfare reimbursement – so you can take a trip home when you need to.
