Teaching in Malaysia, KL or Penang

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by adamorient, Sep 28, 2009.

  1. Hi, I know this is an old post but I thought I'd give it a try!

    Basically I may have a job offer to teach iGCSE and Key Stage 3 History at R.E.A.L International School in Malaysia in the campus located in Shaha Alam.

    The contract is 2 years and 5000RM per month with accommodation subsidised (1300RM)

    I have no idea if this is a good salary, whether the school is accredited, an what the surrounding area is like.

    Can anybody help me on this matter?

    I would like to teach History abroad as an eventual career and I'm thinking this would be a good place to start.

    Well, that's £1050 a month, so I guess it depends on what you consider 'good'. In general that is not that good and your accommodation subsidy also looks a bit low too.

    In general though if you think tis is a good career path or it offers opportunities to live where you desire, the money is fine and you can live comfortably in SE Asia.

    Hi Indian teachers get 7,000-7,500 RM per month so do unqualified "white" looking teachers from South Africa/Europe etc. So rubbish salary way below market rates.

    Not a real international school either. Mostly local staff all paid peanuts. Banana anyone?
