Teach English in Cambodia

Want to Teach English in Cambodia?


With its history of war now an increasingly distant memory, Cambodia has become one of the must-visit destinations in Southeast Asia. Pristine beaches, ancient temples and exotic jungle, are just some of the compelling attractions of the country. Program participants are regularly placed in paid teaching positions throughout the country, and demand for English teachers remains consistently strong.

LanguageCorps offers the following Programs in Cambodia:

Each program is summarized below, and further details can be found by clicking the appropriate program link.
