Hi,

Does anyone have any tips regarding who the best language chains or Higher Education institutions are to get work through as a teacher of English in Asia?

Asia is a big place. Can you be more specific?

I am particularly interested in teaching in Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, the Phillipines or Taiwan.

That's still too broad Hubert. If I were you I would pick one country and do as much research as you can (due diligence).

As for China the 3 major chains catering to adults and business people are:

English First
Wall Street Institute
Web International

Are you a native speaker?

When I was working in Taiwan, Hess was the biggest chain, focused primarily on teaching very young kids.
