Located in Central Asia, Uzbekistan is a unique crossroads of people and cultures. As the former center of the famed Silk Road, it was the meeting place of great empires -including those of Alexander the Great, the Russian Tsars, Genghis Khan, and Tamerlan- as well as many nomadic tribes before the development of major sea routes. The modern state still boasts some of the oldest cities in the world, and its people remain spiritually diverse, following Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam.

CHI works with a trusted partner agency in Tashkent, Uzbekistan to find the best host families possible for our World Explorers. Tashkent is the capital of Uzbekistan and began as a thriving city along the Great Silk Road that led from China to Europe. Little remains of the ancient city following an earthquake in 1966 earthquake and various Soviet modernization projects following the 1917 revolution.

Although Uzbek is now the official language, Russian more widely spoken. Most businesses use Russian in their signs, menus and other printed material. Only government institutions use Uzbek as the first language, and even then, many government forms and reports are in Russian, rather than Uzbek. Uzbekistan is an ideal destination for people who want to study Russian in an exotic and alluring location. World Explorers offers a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience and to boost your resume teaching English in Uzbekistan.

Some of the overseas partner agencies we work with place restrictions on age. We recommend this destination for travelers ages 18-30. Some older candidates may be considered, but we cannot guarantee it.


In order to teach English in Uzbekistan you must:

Be at least 18 years old

Be a high school graduate

Be flexible and adaptable to a different culture

Be respectful of your host family’s rules

Be a fluent English speaker *

* from the United States, Canada, UK, Australia or New Zealand. Residents from other countries may only be considered if they are completely fluent in English
Travel options from 30 to 90 days

Program Costs

CHI is a non-profit organization, but we still have fixed costs that are necessary for running the program. Our overseas partners are actually for-profit, and we must take that into consideration as well. Our partners do the work to find and screen excellent host families that match your interests and needs!
