Live & Teach in Myanmar
Placements exclusively for myTEFL graduates
Myanmar is still quite a mysterious enigma to the rest of the world. However, in recent times, the country has opened up to tourism, sharing its quaint and delightful customs with the rest of the world. Take the opportunity to make a difference – teach the future generations of Myanmar, share your lifestyle and culture with people that have rarely come across foreigners. And surprise yourself with the delights that Myanmar has to offer!
If you want a taste of the exotic and the unexpected, Myanmar is the right place for you. Want to know what the future holds for you? Fortune-telling and astrology are big business in Myanmar. Even politicians and militia leaders consult their astrologer before taking an important step. Yadaya, or preventative magic enables a person to avoid any misfortune through performing rituals. Myanmar switched from driving on the left side of the road to right side on the advice of General Ne Win’s wife’s fortune teller! For a truly magical mystical sight, take a trip to the Shwedagon Pagoda – a Buddhist stupa covered completely in gold leaf with the umbrella crown studded with more than 5448 diamonds and 2317 rubies! The diamond bud right on the top weighs about 76 carats! A majestic pair of leogryphs guard the entrance to the walkway leading to the Shwedagon Pagoda. Words simply cannot do justice to this incredible bejewelled temple. If you’re the adventurous type, how about an exciting Himalayan trek? It is possible to trek up Mount Phongun Razi from the town of Putao. The surrounding area is packed with wild life, as well as exotic orchids. For some serious fun, make sure you’re in Myanmar for the Buddhist New Year around the 15th of April. Buddhists celebrate New Year with prayers, rituals, dances, parties, and water fights. It is auspicious to “wash” away old sins by cleansing the head with water. Myanmaris take this to the extreme, bombarding each other with water cannons, pistols and buckets. After all, it is all for your own good, right? For the nature lover, Myanmar’s abundant jungles are home to tigers, elephants, leopards, and rhinoceros among others. Take a wine-tasting tour in the vineyards on the mountain slopes of Myanmar. Now add rubies to this exotic mix! Myanmar has the world’s finest rubies! Fortune-telling, magic, rubies, wine, water-fights, Himalayas, orchids, exotic animals, and much much more!! What are you waiting for? Let myTEFL help you create unforgettable memories as you teach and travel through this delightful country.
