"The course was extremely helpful as I was just given a timetable and told to teach the classes on it. At this school what you teach is your choice." - Adam Achouki

"I took your 60 hour course and it was great, it got me a nice job in China." - Michael Brennan

"Quite interesting! I was intimidated by the idea of teaching young learners, but this course changed my mind and now I'm looking forward to the chance!" - Justin Knox

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience." - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120

Here is a painting I did on paper. The quality of the image is pretty poor and it's not my finest work, but I tried, lol. It jokes about the scene for teaching English in Asia.

Uncle Sam Chang Wants You to Teach English in Asia

Uncle Chang's Engrish

What it says:

"We Want You! To Teach English in Asia. Subscribe and become an eflective Engrish teacher today. $20 an hour or more if you're handsome or pretty or less if you're not."

"We make the best teachers guaranteed! or you pay me back."

What it touches on:


You'll find all kinds of funny "Engrish" sayings all over Asia. You'll see them on signs, clothing, find them in books, and pretty much anywhere there can be translations.

Employer preferences

There are definitely openly expressed discriminatory preferences out there for English teachers that can be based on race, sex, age and more. I think employers often have discriminatory preferences yet there are not so openly expressed as they are in Asia.

Dodgy employers and recruiters

You'll find your share of horror stories if you browse the net. Employers and recruiters that cheat people.

Uncle Chang doubles as an ESL recruiter and a private school owner. Watch out for this guy he's very slick and deceptive.
