Teaching English in the Middle East. Most teachers know that you can earn a very high salary teaching in the Middle East. Countries listed in the Middle East Directory are, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, all waiting to hear from you call, E-mail or fax them in minutes. Teachers are given very good packages. English is already the international language of science, technology, and business, and is fast becoming the international language in many other fields as well. Middle Eastern countries are behind the rest of the world in English language proficiency, and there is a shortage of native English-speaking teachers in schools.

YEMENYemen might seem like an unlikely destination for ESL/EFL teachers to head for, but the demand for native-speaking English teachers out here is significant.
Yeman is not oil rich, and illiteracy is estimated to be over 75%, and there is an acute shortage of qualified teachers at the primary level.
Opportunities exist for teachers with internationally-recognized TESOL qualifications, and for those without. There is a growing number of English-medium schools in Yemen, all of which will consider applications from qualified ESL/EFL teachers; there are also teaching opportunities in the oil and gas industries, with the Canadian-Oxidental oil company being one of the biggest employers of ESL/EFL teachers in Yemen.

SAUDIA ARABIAThe Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has always been seen as paying some of the highest ESL/EFL tax-free salaries in the world. Free airfares, accommodation, health care and education for dependent children are also typically thrown in. Opportunities exist at different levels: Saudi schools and universities employ native English-speaking teachers to teach in their Language Departments; Military and Petrochemical institutions employ teachers for their in-house English language programs; and some Saudi families employ teachers to teach their children English at home.
Saudi Arabia was once a difficult place for ESL/EFL teachers to get into. Revised visa regulations and the House of Saudi’s realization that Saudis - like their oil-producing neighbours in the Gulf region - need to speak English have made it much easier to find work in this enigmatic country. In fact, most teachers experience more difficulties obtaining the mandatory Exit Visa to get out than the Entry Visa to get in.
TESOL qualifications are essential, with many positions stipulating a Masters or Diploma-level qualification.

OMANThe education system in Oman has been undergoing dramatic changes over the past four years. A new education system has been established which is the Basic Education System in which, amongst other things, children learn English from first year (6 years of age). Prior to the new system the youngest age at which English was taught was 9 years of age.
In this new course children learn English through a variety of activities such as songs, games, stories and acting. On top of this there are many activities which take advantage of the children’s natural instincts. Therefore it is not unusual to walk into an English lesson these days and see children cutting, building or pasting. This certainly makes their learning meaningful and generally provides a genuine purpose for the young children.

An important feature of sane and adequately-balanced life in the Middle East is recreation. In Oman car ownership is imperative (happily, almost all college teachers own cars, usually new ones) but there are NO recreational facilities - such as club membership provided by one's employer - provided on the college contract. This contrasts sharply with the situation of employees working for employers in K.S.A.

ISREAL“Yes, my first year was tough -- it took me a while to get used to the different
mentality and culture, but I stuck it out and stayed with it. The
following year was MUCH easier and I am not sorry that I stayed. Israeli
students are "lively", yes, but they are also warm and fun-loving. I
have had many wonderful experiences with my students in the past 18 years.
Though the teaching conditions in Israel leave much to be desired teaching Israeli youth is a truly rewarding experience.
“In general, it's been a rewarding and pleasurable experience. I find most Israeli students to be serious and generally hard-working, with the usual exceptions to the rule, of course. Despite large classroom sizes, Israeli pupils are very tuned in to English, as many of the TV programs are American/British (no dubbing here!), most students are quite familiar with English-language music/lyrics and have a pretty good knowledge of English culture.” Anonymous Teacher

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah are the main places to teach. But a TEFL qualification is essential to take advantage of the opportunities here, and despite the teacher shortage they are very choosy. In Dubai and Abu Dhabi both male and female teachers can teach General English and Business English, in Private Language Institutes, Scientific and Technological Institutes, Universities and State Primary and Secondary schools. Positions in military and petrochemical institutes are also often a possibility.

The UAE/Arab culture is completely different to the western culture (obviously).
The UAE is generally a dog eat dog society, in which the majority of the indigenous
population are just one step away from a desert, nomadic and tribal mentality. The
rest are no steps away. If the UAE did not have oil then you would never have heard
of Dubai. The UAE is a society in which a small percentage of the population enjoy the vast majority of wealth and power. What would be seen as corruption in western society is simply seen as getting things done in the UAE.
“Working here is a function of the culture of the place and the region.
It can be an amazing experience, and it can be rewarding financially.
Very few people go from here. There is a lot of money to made here”
