Teach English in Indonesia
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words teach English in Indonesia? For most of us, the paradise island of Bali will be the first thing that pops into our heads. But, lo and behold, there’s more to this country than it’s well-known island getaway made famous by the book and movie Eat Pray Love, thank you Julia Roberts.
In reality, there’s another 260 million people across its whopping 17,508 islands. That said, most of the TESOL teaching jobs in Indonesia will be situated in the modern city of Jakarta. Although it might not be the most exciting city to live in, the silver lining is in the ability to take day trips to the thousands of neighbouring islands (including Bali) and bask in their breathtaking scenery and history.
For starters, within a quick and inexpensive 1hr plane trip, you can visit Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist temple that dates back to the 8 – 9th century. It’s built from two million blocks of stone and could be considered of Indonesia’s most important cultural sites. Not far away from is another World Heritage listed site, the Prambanan Temples, one is Indonesia’s largest Hindu sites. Of course, there beaches, volcanoes, mountains, and plenty more to set your sights on.
