Teaching Jobs in Middle East

08 May

English teachers are in great demand in today’s global economy. TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) & TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) have rapidly become sought-after jobs across the globe. English speaking countries like U.K & U.S.A need teachers for ESL jobs, while non-English speaking countries like China, Korea & Thailand need teachers for EFL jobs. Another place, where teaching English has become a lucrative job, is the Middle East.

Getting a TEFL Job in the Middle East

Countries like U.A.E, Oman and Qatar & Dubai offer high remuneration to English Teachers. They prefer native speakers but also hire non-native ones, provided they are good at the teacher training job. The pay is quite good in these places & some also offer free accommodation. If English is not your mother tongue, you will have a better chance of getting a job if you can go there for a few weeks. If you are already in the country, institutes won’t mind giving you a call for interview. So, once you get your Diploma, make arrangements to go there for 1-2 weeks & set up some interviews beforehand. If you are good, you will get a job.

A Little about the Middle East

The Middle East is a fascinating place seeped in history. It is full of the relics of the ancient civilizations & their past glories. Its climate varies from the very hot Sahara Desert to the freezing northern mountains. Even more intriguing are the people. Every place has its unique culture & the people are typically warm & friendly. Thus, whether you prefer hot climate or a cold one; whether you want to live in the rural parts or the urban, you will find a place to your liking in the Middle East. And there isn’t a better job than teaching to get a taste of the history & culture of the Middle East.
