    I am applying for a teaching assistant position in either Malaysia or Indonesia. Salaries and job openings aside, what do a I need to know in terms of differences between the two? I am a 26 year old American female and want international experience for my career in Peace Operations and International Development. I'm a social person and up for an adventure but also want to have the ability to communicate with people back home on a somewhat regular basis.

    I'm also considering Laos and Thailand if either of those trump your opinions on Malaysia or Indonesia all together. Thanks in advance!

    Malaysia has a lot tuition centres especially in the cities, and I dun think u r able get a position with govt schools. I would suggest u to search for position in private schools.
    In Malaysia, it depends on the salary that u require or more on the experience. Try your luck also with International Schools (Nexus in Kuala Lumpur and other one in Labuan).
    Wish you Good Luck!
