There's minimum wage, indentured servitude, slavery, and this...

Wow! A great opportunity to pay for the privilege of working?! Where do I sign up? You have to hand it to the Chinese. They convince US manufacturers to export their jobs to China. The PRC then turns around and charges a fee for the few service sector jobs that created by this massive influx of Yankee dollars.

2009 Teach in Asia Program

Crane House, The Asia Institute, Inc., announces its 21st Summer Teaching-in-Asia Program from July 8 through July 31, 2009. Teachers who are selected will conduct a short-term, intensive, English-training program for teachers and/or students in China, Cambodia or Vietnam. Host teaching sites provide free rooming, meals, and short day-trips.

A cost is associated with the program (around $2500 for China [adagio: you must be kidding me...]; slightly higher for Vietnam and less for Cambodia), but generous subsidies, provided by The Freeman Foundation, are available to teachers who qualify. Classroom teaching experience is required. Both practicing and retired teachers in any discipline, from K through collegiate levels, are encouraged to apply. Crane House conducts orientation sessions between February and June, 2009. Crane House provides all required training sessions, teaching materials and its shipping to Asia, and coordinates all travel arrangements (flights, visa, passport, etc.).

For a Teaching-in-Asia application, please see below under Applications. For additional information, call Crane House’s Director of Education at (502) 635-2240, or email .


  1. I remember when I was in college reading about teach in asia programs, but in those you were paid, a nice chunk too.

  2. This program sounds like it was inspired by Tom Sawyer.
