Demand for English Teachers

Oil discovery has brought significant wealth to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), thereby increasing the need for residents to learn English-the global language of business. While many language institutions in the UAE have been experiencing a teacher shortage, high salaries and favorable teaching conditions allow most employers to continue to be very selective in hiring English teachers.

Typical English Students / Popular Teaching Destinations

The three most prominent emirates in the UAE-Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah provide lucrative opportunities for well-qualified EFL teachers who are committed to their students’ success. Openings for teaching positions are regularly available for both male and female English teachers who are interested in teaching young learners, university students, or adults. Many employers also offer reimbursed airfare, free housing, and bonuses at the conclusion of teaching contracts.

United Arab Emirates Overview

One of the world’s youngest and most dynamic countries, the UAE was founded in 1971 and consists of seven emirates. The nation’s terrain includes vast stretches of rolling desert speckled with green oases, while the coastal regions feature sandy, tranquil beaches. In the cities, cosmopolitan flair and modern excitement are superimposed on ancient history: traditional souks are offset by huge shopping malls, and skyscrapers soar over ancient mosques.

Located on the Persian Gulf, Dubai is the second largest emirate and one of the planet’s top centers of commerce and tourism. Just three decades ago, the Emirati people were nomads, traveling by camelback across the desert. Today, modernization has steered the primarily-Muslim population into a new, urbanized way of life. Women are gaining freedom, becoming more educated and able to work outside the home. Considered of the world’s fastest growing tourist destinations, the UAE features camel farms just minutes from five-star hotels and more than 430 miles (700 km) of coastline.
