I'm Asian-American. English is my first language. However, I get the impression that most language schools overseas prefer hiring white teachers. Is it possible to teach English overseas if you are not white?

They'd probably hire you in an Asian country desu

they're probably sick of all the white expats by now

No, a lot of language schools in Asia prefer hiring white ESL teachers.

Bump
I want some serious responses

>>16544619
yeah, but it may be tougher for you to find a job

Some ESL schools require you to have at least some teaching experience and a TEFL certificate. Where I used to work, there was a Asian-British guy and girl who had teaching experience and TEFL got to work where I used to work.

Yes, but it would be easier if you are white.
Similarly, it would likely be easier for a chinese teacher to find a job teaching chinese in a western nation if they were asian.

It just gives the impression of natural ability in that regard is all.

Whether that is right or wrong is a whole different matter.

My friend is Indian but born and raised in Britain, he teaches English abroad in Eastern/Southern Europe and China.

Tru going to another state. A lot of teachers from my state regardless of their ethnic background had to go to another state for a few years before being able to land a job back home.

Did they found these jobs via networks?
>>16545126
Yeah, almost zero white people are native Chinese speakers whereas plenty of Asians are native English speakers.

Well he usually got emails as well as face to face job recommendations from more experienced, older teachers.
