About Asia

Asia is by far the largest and most populous continent on earth, with more than 4 billion inhabitants, making it home to a staggering 60% of the world's population! Asia is made up of 48 countries, from Turkey in the west to Japan in the east. Famous the world over for using fresh ingredients, exotic spices, dense rainforests and an almost endless supply of tropical islands and unspoilt sandy beaches.

Culturally diverse and historically rich, Asia is home to the world's oldest human civilization, its highest peaks and most populous cities. As well as one of the greatest man-made structures, the Great Wall of China. The sheer variety Asia has to offer will ensure that you’ll never run out of exciting things to do and build a collection of unforgettable experiences. Take a slow boat down the Mekong River, relax on a paradise island in Thailand, explore Bagan temples in Myanmar and sip a Singapore Sling cocktail at the world famous Raffles hotel.

Whatever you are looking to achieve or see Asia has it all, combining historic monuments with some of the most advanced cities in the world. From the ancient Khmer ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia to the modern shopping malls of Japan, Asia combines an eclectic mix of the old and the new. Known for its spirituality as the birthplace of Buddhism, religion plays an important part of everyday life. With so many natural wonders, Asia is perfect for those that want to explore as well as relax. You'll need a lifetime just to scratch the surface of this wonderfully diverse continent.

Teachers who have made the move

I moved to Dubai in 2008, having spent my previous teaching career in Scotland. Working in Dubai was attractive because I was looking for a better work/life balance. I had visited many times, so was comfortable with the culture.

After teaching in South Wales for four years, I knew that I needed a change and a challenge in my life. I decided I started to look for jobs abroad and applied online to various schools. After an interview in London, I was offered an outstanding opportunity at The English College in Dubai.
