TEFL Jobs in Cambodia
Cambodia is home to some of the most inspiring, and the most terrifying, moments in human history. On one hand, Cambodia is home to what many consider the eighth wonder of the world, the Angkor Wat – a spiritual and cultural treasure so central to Cambodian history that it adorns their national flag. On the other, the country was home to the oppressive Khmer Rouge regime in the late 20th Century, which left its marks on the country in the form of prisons notorious for their brutality. While this made Cambodia a bit of mixed bag for visitors during periods of political instability, since the beginning of the 21st the country has rebounded and is seeing growth in all sectors.
The growing economy of the country provides ample opportunities for TEFL teachers to make a great start to their teaching careers. The capital city, Phnom Penh, runs at a frentic pace as new businesses try to take advantage of newly-opened markets. The expansion has revealed a dire need for TEFL teachers, so TEFL Org graduates can expect to quickly pick up both public and private lessons. While the rapid pace of business may evoke images of soulless Wall Street peons, visitors to the country all agree: Angkor Wat may be beautiful, but it’s the people who are the real treasure. Our country guide to Cambodia provides evidence to this claim. With students who are noted for being optimistic, affectionate, and kind, TEFL teachers should find it a joy to teach in this complicated and charismatic country.
