International Teaching

British International School HCMC provides opportunities beyond the ordinary for both our students and our teachers.

 

If you are excited at the possibility of doing meaningful work in an exciting new destination, all the while making incredible new friends and learning about new cultures, international teaching could be for you.

If you haven’t taught overseas before you might like to consider whether you are the sort of person who is able to easily adapt to teaching in another country by considering how you would respond to the following general advice:

  • Learn as much as possible about the host country in advance so that have realistic expectations.
  • Anticipate a challenging adjustment period of at least three months before making a decision about the move and whether you like it or not.
  • Do not expect to be able to replicate your current lifestyle. Look for what is there, not for what isn’t.
  • Always try to understand the host country perspective. It will be different!
  • Develop a tolerance for ambiguity and frustration by being flexible and open towards the new culture.
  • Do not expect of the new culture the same sense of urgency or availability of conveniences.
  • In all things be flexible.
  • Look for ways to strengthen and maintain your enthusiasm.
  • Maintain a sense of humour, but most importantly be ready to laugh at yourself.
