China Tops Teacher Salaries, Flood of New Jobs in Latin America

Bird's Nest Stadium, Beijing

China’s ESL market is thriving, as recruiters are competing for qualified teachers, giving salaries a nice boost. China now stands toe-to-toe with Saudi Arabia in offering some of the best pay for ESL teachers worldwide.

Closer to home, the demand to learn English continues to grow in Latin America, with new opportunities every day, particularly in Colombia. With a well-developed online presence to help bridge the gap to in-person classes, recruiters in Latin America are eager to bring in native speakers, with hundreds of recent openings!

 I’ll admit right off the bat that I was wary and unsure of how to approach searching for jobs overseas, as the vast quantity of them was simply overwhelming. Thankfully, with the help of Oxford Seminars and its placement program, the whole process was really streamlined. My Job Placement Advisors did a lot of work on their end, and I was soon buried under an avalanche of phone and Skype interviews. - N.E., Vancouver, BC
