Teachers, South Korea, China, Thailand, online – ongoing

March 10, 2018

Shanna Zaarour, a Marketing Intern with Flying Cows, a UK based agency, has written with details of teaching jobs in Asian destinations.

“We have some great positions available in Korea, China, Thailand and teaching English online to Chinese students. We would be delighted if you would share these with your students and graduates. Please find details attached.

Teaching in South Korea

Having a TEFL/CELTA qualification is not an essential requirement when applying for the relevant visa for Korea but we recommend that candidates have one. We know from experience that having a teaching qualification greatly benefits both the employer and the teacher. In order to obtain the teaching visa for Korea you need to have a passport from the UK, Ireland, Canada, the US, New Zealand, Australia or South Africa. This is not a policy we support and we have petitioned the immigration office in Korea on many occasions over the last decade but to no avail. We have hopes that this situation will change in the near future.  

Teaching in China

To obtain a teaching visa for China you need to have a minimum of a 120-hour teaching qualification. Native and non-native English speaking candidates are eligible to obtain the teaching visa for China but non-native English speaking candidates are required to have studied at degree level in a native English speaking country.  

Teaching in Thailand

To teach in Thailand it is not essential for candidates to have a teaching qualification but we do recommend it.  Candidates can be native or non-native English speakers. Non-native English speakers may be required to submit an introduction video of themselves to demonstrate their English level.   

Teaching English Online

To teach English online candidates are required to have a teaching qualification or experience of teaching. Candidates can be native or non-native English speakers.  

Flying Cows ESL has been in operation since 2004.  We help graduates find great teaching positions overseas and have spent many years developing relationships with reliable schools overseas.   The schools we work with are required to have a high level of transparency and must allow prospective teachers to talk directly to current teachers before the sign a contract.  

Please be assured that we do not support recruitment methods that exclude any nationalities but we are forced to work within immigration laws.  

If you have any questions or would like us to send you any leaflets or posters please feel free to let me know. Also, please do join us on social media:
