Teaching in South East Asia
I know about TEFL and would do the two week course but its gonna cost money and i don't know if its worth doing or not.
Does anyone know what the working day is generally like? Any experiences would be awesome!
Also any ideas on the general wage in SEA? Is it enough to live on for a short ammount of time?
Jobs vary tremendously from school to school. In Cambodia, you can say how many hours you want to work as there are no year long contracts to sign. I worked 4 hours a day, 5 days a week and lived very comfortably as well as saved. Thailand is different. Pay is horrible as it's a preferred destination. Employer don't need to offer much as there are so many people wanting to work there.
Generally, in Asia, you will teach kids. It's often more of a babysitting service than anything else. It's is tiring work. Cambodia had a 18-24 sort of age group. I could go on and on listing a bunch of possible scenarios, but SE Asia is a big place and each country is different.
Did you get the work in the country or before you arrived?
