Teach English in Oman

TEFL Jobs in Oman: Oman is yet another great place for TEFL teachers who want to save money and live in an interesting country. Teaching English can be very lucrative in Oman, whether at a language centre, university or with the British Council. Experience is essential and many employers require at least two years. The local people are said to be very welcoming and respectful for those who respect Islam. Many people, particularly Western women, will find the harassment and inward culture stifling to say the least. Many teachers complain that Omani students feel as if they deserve great results without putting in any effort so motivation problems may be an issue. There are plenty of beautiful places to explore in Oman but bear in mind that the culture is strict and conservative.

TEFL Jobs in the U.A.E.: Along with Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E. offers some of the very best TEFL salaries in the world. If you work here for a few years you should be able to buy a nice house outright back in the West. But that’s if you can handle living in such a place for such a length of time. As with all Gulf States, the ultra-strict Muslim way of life is not particularly compatible with other belief systems and therefore many Westerners will require considerable time to adjust to what can be a stifling and rigid cultural environment. For example, even playing music in public is forbidden. Besides the generous tax-free salaries, the other positive points include the excellent cuisine and opportunities to explore the desert and coastline.
