Teaching English in Cambodia

Cambodia is a very peaceful country and attracts millions of visitors every year.  Native speakers are welcomed from any country that they come from and also fluent English speakers regardless of their country of citizenship can also find work.  The Cambodian people are very friendly and very respectful, especially towards their teacher!

​It is not impossible to secure a teaching position before you arrive in Cambodia, however,​the vast majority of people find a job when they are already in Cambodia. Most schools want to meet you in person before offering you a job.

Salaries for qualified English teachers range from $10 – $25 USD per hour.  Typically you are paid in cash either weekly or monthly.  Don’t expect any additional benefits, these are rarely available unless you find a gig at an international school.

Visa requirements? They simply don’t exist in Cambodia. If you have the money, you will get a business visa. It costs about $280 per year. Some schools, especially the schools that only recruit experienced and qualified teachers, might even pay this for you.

​So, if you are considering teaching in a very friendly, laid-back country with a really low cost of living, Cambodia may be perfect for you.​
