Top Countries to Teach English
In one of our previous articles, we’ve already mentioned that teaching English language might be a great option to earn money abroad. This time, however, we will get into specifics by naming 5 countries that are best suited for this line of work.
Before we begin, let’s name a few countries that did not make the list, but at least deserve an honorable mention.
Spain - The main reason why Spain wasn’t on the list is due to the country’s economic downturn in recent years. Still, you can make an honest living here, and Spain is among the most beautiful countries in Europe, so give it a shot.
Costa Rica - Who wouldn’t want to live in this tropical paradise? On the plus side, the cost of living isn’t great, so you won’t be affected by somewhat of a low salary. Unfortunately, it is hard to get a job here, as local usually have the advantage.
Turkey - Due to political turmoil, we had to leave it out, as this country just isn’t safe these days, and it’s a bummer.

Still, their culture is unique, and locals are not too open to the western influence, so be aware of this. However, if you are adaptable, we assure you that Taiwan is one of the best places you will ever visit.
Throughout history, China always had a reputation of being unwilling to accept foreign influences, but today, things have changed dramatically. They put a special emphasis on learning the English language, and because of that, jobs are very easy to find. Furthermore, they are also handsomely paid, often offering bonuses such as free housing and airfare reimbursement.

- Czech Republic
The capitol city of Czech Republic, Prague, is without a doubt, one of the most gorgeous European cities. Not only that, but it offers a ton of opportunities to foreign teachers as well.

The only thing that’s holding Thailand back from no. 1 on our list is the pay, which isn’t particularly high, so chances are you won’t go here to save a ton of money. Instead, this amazing country offers everything else, and the option to live the life to the fullest. Try it out for a few months. Chances are you will fall in love with this place.
