Welcome to Teachers In Cambodia

We place teachers in schools all over Asia.

Teaching in Cambodia is truly an experience like no other! It’s a great opportunity to discover a new culture and lifestyle, while also giving you the ability to discover yourself. Many people who desire to teach English in Asia do not consider everything that the opportunity provides, such as the impact you will have on your students, the friends you will meet or the sights that you will see.

The Students

Over all, Cambodian students are lovely to teach. In Asia cultures teachers are given the utmost respect, so students are often incredibly polite and respectful to teachers. Moreover, many are extremely motivated to learn as they understand the importance of learning English to secure a spot in the global economy. Students can be shy around foreigners, but after they feel a bit more comfortable around the teacher they will ask questions about grammar, pronunciation and culture, and they love to have a good laugh, so games and jokes always go over well.

The Teachers

English teachers in Asia come from all over the world, with a large majority hailing from Australia, New Zealand, England and North America. Quite a few teachers in Asia have fallen in love with their country and have decided to stay there for the long haul, so at most schools it is easy to find veteran colleagues who can give pointers on living in the country, cultural differences and tips on teaching students of a given country.
