  • Darja

    It is really crazy how this industry exploded out of nowhere. Less than decade ago there were only a couple of people teaching online, whereas now everywhere in Southeast Asia we have traveled to, we have found people teaching English online. I understand that it sounds like an easy and lucrative job opportunity, but I wonder how long this will last until competition drives prices (and hence salaries) low but the requirements high(er)? Anyway, now is the time to go for it 🙂 Thanks for this review, it helps navigate through the sea of ELTs.
