Why are overseas teaching jobs so important? Simply put, being able to speak English is no longer an advantage; it’s a necessary skill that’s required to stay competitive in a global economy that’s dominated by the English language.
Is English recognized as the true international language? As of 2021, the World Bank, World Trade Organization (WTO), United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), the international scientific community, multinational corporations, and many other prominent international organizations, used English as their primary means of communication. If you take these factors into consideration then English is the true, and only, globally recognized language.
Teaching overseas will surely open your eyes to new adventures and possibilities. Be prepared for any and everything because amazing opportunities usually transpire when you’re living abroad!
Although there are numerous countries on most continents with English teaching opportunities available, East Asia continues to be ‘the place to be’ for most adventurous westerners. East Asia alone employs more native English teachers than the rest of the world combined and with China on the rise this trend is likely to continue in the years to come.
