There are various uncontrollable factors why we cannot place applicants in every city at all times throughout the year. When we don’t have positions in your desired city we will let you know and offer you a suitable substitute. The smaller cities employ less western teachers than the larger cities so if you want a smaller city please try to be slightly flexible and open to suggestions.
