Living in Mongolia
One of the world’s least densely populated countries, Mongolia is sometimes called the “Land of Blue Skies” for its many sunny days and vast, open skies. Mongolia is ideal for those seeking natural beauty and a good dose of adventure. One of the few nations where nomadic living is still common, Mongolia is home to friendly citizens who welcome visitors warmly.
Most people who teach English in Mongolia will do so in the capital of Ulaanbaatar (Ulan Bator). The city is accustomed to tourists, and is finding English increasingly in demand, resulting in a continuing push for English language classes. Ulaanbaatar has plenty of modern amenities, restaurants, and attractions, although many opt to travel outside of the city during their days off, as the Mongolian countryside is breathtaking.
