Dear Friend,
If you are thinking of your next career move, please make sure that you are moving into a growing industry instead of a shrinking industry!


It's all about demand and supply. If you are in a growing industry, you have plenty of opportunities and you can command a higher income.

  • Education
  • Internet

Out of the whole list of growing industry, there is one NICHE that stands out from the rest. It is Teaching English!
You may think well, everyone can teach English. That's true. But not everyone is certified to teach English worldwide!

  • The demand for English Teachers is increasing, especially in Asia. Don't just take our words for it. Check out these useful websites and

At Asian LifeSkills, we offer Certificate in TEFL from UK. The Cert in TEFL is recognized by Workforce Development Agency, Singapore and approved for Skills Development Funding. It is also recognized by NTUC Learning Hub, Singapore.

TESOL has equipped me tremendously. I've started teaching part time, 2x a week and I'm paid $40 per hour for total 90hrs Beginner module. I'm teaching workplace literacy and numeracy to adults who originated from China but they are now S'pore PR or citizen. My 1st class was enjoyable, fun and meaningful.
