Teach English In India - What A Teacher Needs To Know
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Teachers who choose to use their qualifications to teach English in India, will find themselves working not only in a beautiful country but immersed in a cultural experience that reflects the different religions that are important influences on the food and life style choices of the Indian people.

History and the modern world blend together and this makes teaching English in this country a very exciting career choice. Indian business people are required to learn English to conduct their international affairs and complete outsourced jobs, students need to learn English to enable them to study in universities around the world, and ordinary Indians learn to speak English for use in their trades and in tourist areas around the country.

Paid jobs available in the country are a bit limited but preference is given to those teachers who commit to long-term work in the country. There are plenty of unpaid positions available for those who have basic qualifications or experience teaching English and this may suit those who want to combine living in the country with gaining valuable teaching experience as they register to teach English in India on a voluntary basis.

Students on gap years, and those seeking experience to add to their teaching resumes will find work in schools in the country, and trained teachers may be able to combine teaching their specialty subjects while teaching English to students throughout the country.

Most of the positions available are in the larger cities scattered around the country, and the teaching may be focused on modifying accents and improving pronunciation as well as the more conventional teaching courses in business and commerce English.

Finding suitable teaching jobs is not difficult with agencies recruiting teachers from TESOL and TEFL schools in English speaking countries. Private schools and large companies within the country recruit teachers and smaller village schools provide voluntary teaching opportunities too.

Work visas are required before people can work in India and these can be extensive. Most paid jobs will offer reimbursement of costs of the application and other costs involved in relocation such as vaccination costs. Airfares from country of origin at the commencement of the contract and return airfares at the conclusion of the contract are often provided as part of the terms of employment. Accommodation may be provided in furnished accommodation.

Teachers who choose to teach English in India will find enthusiastic students who respect them and their skills, and who are eager to learn. Education is important to Indians and those who are able to learn will do their best to achieve good results from their training. Most teachers work 6 days a week and can expect to need to be available 20-25 hours a week. Teachers in paid positions will receive approximately $400.00 US per month. Most all of the paid positions will require TESOL certification and preference is given to those who have extensive experience and possibly hold a degree, though the qualifications required do vary extensively and the teacher wanting to teach English in India should be able to find work, regardless of their qualifications.
