A nation made up of 17,508 islands, right along the equator, Indonesia boasts great ecological and cultural diversity. In Indonesia, you can surf the clear waters off Lombok Island or survey Komodo dragons, or explore the architecturally-stunning 9th century Buddhist temple of Borobudur. Indonesia lies in the South east of Asia. It is a popular country for Australian teachers and the demand for English teachers is high.

It’s very easy to find work in Jakarta. The main market is for Business English, and the demand keeps increasing. This is an excellent destination for qualified and experienced teachers. The cost of living is cheap. You can expect to earn a basic salary in Jakarta and less in rural cities.

With a population of about 238 million, there is never a dull moment as you meet and teach incredibly spirited and friendly people. Indonesian students love hearing about pop culture from other countries, and are eager to improve and practice their language skills. If you want to experience the pulsing traffic of Jakarta, eat fresh seafood on the Balinese shore, or visit orangutans in Sumatra, Indonesia welcomes new teachers looking to inspire and be inspired.
