Prospects for Teachers

Every year, a growing number of students flock to Australia and New Zealand to study English. As a result, the number of private language institutes has surged in the area. English language professionals will therefore find their prospects of employment in the region to be quite strong. Although ESL students in Australia and New Zealand come from a broad range of ethnicities, a significant portion of them come from Japan and South Korea, while others come from Italy and Spain. Depending on the school, contracts ranging from several months to one year can be obtained. Travellers holding a Youth Mobility Visa (e.g. Working Holiday Visa) can find short contracts with the option of extension.
