Teaching English in Hong Kong 101

English teachers in Hong Kong can find jobs year round, as interviews are conducted well in advance. Interviews are held both over the phone and via e-mail. Instructors are usually responsible for airfare and housing expenses. Those who teach English in Hong Kong often live in apartments recently vacated by previous teachers, while many choose to room with coworkers.  Teaching positions with children or adults are extensive, though it should be noted that the job market can be competitive and most schools will only hire English teachers from a native English speaking country with at least a four-year degree and a TEFL certification.

A generous salary affords English teachers in Hong Kong a comfortable lifestyle, with the possibility to save up to $ 600 USD per month. Schools typically offer 20 to 25 hours of work per week, leaving plenty of time to travel and explore.
