From Morocco to Dubai, learn about English teaching jobs across the Middle East.
Schools in Middle Eastern nations such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates have a strong need for certified English teachers. University classes in several of the Arab nations are taught in English. Besides, the strategic location of the region at the crossroads of the East and West has turned cities such as Dubai into important leisure and commerce hubs where the norm is to communicate in English. Several of the wealthy Gulf countries in particular offer majority of the jobs in the education system to experienced teachers holding a TEFL certification in addition to their bachelors’ or masters’ in education.
Individuals qualifying for such teaching positions get to enjoy one of the highest pay packages this field has to offer, ranging from a monthly salary of $2,500-$6,000 with add-ons such as free housing and flights to and from their home country.
Countries such as Turkey, Jordan, Morocco, and Egypt have a considerably lower pay-scale but job opportunities for those with only a four-year degree or less besides a TEFL/TESOL certification will be relatively easier to come by. The low pay does not really put individuals at a disadvantage considering the low cost of living as well as the innumerable opportunities to immerse oneself into one of the great regions in the world, famous for its history and culture.
Qualified English teachers looking to ply their trade in the United Arab Emirates can earn anywhere between $1,800-$5,000 of tax-free income every month, perhaps even more in some instances...Learn Now
