TEACHING ENGLISH

IN MYANMAR

Choosing to teach English in Myanmar offers teachers a unique opportunity to immerse themselves and experience new cultures. Myanmar has only opened its doors to the outside world in the last decade, so visitors will find a rich history and vibrant landscapes that have often remained untouched by the West until now. 

Is this right for you?

Our Teaching English in Myanmar program begins with a comprehensive five-day cultural immersion course is held in Yangon and designed to help orientate participants to their new surroundings and give them an in-depth understanding of the history, culture, and people of Myanmar. The orientation includes in-class learning about geography, politics, culture, and language. In conjunction with classroom learning, participants will also take part in excursions to significant sites around Yangon. Participants can take the TESOL course and orientation in Thailand and then leave for Myanmar. There are intakes every month.
