Saudi Arabia TEFL Jobs in Saudi Arabia

Teach and Travel in Saudi Arabia

Like Kuwait, the days of wonderfully high salaries are probably over. However, the salary package usually compares favorably with almost every other country. Teachers are usually required to have the highest qualifications and substantial experience. Not many women are employed and some teachers find the rules and regulations of life in Saudi Arabia rather too restrictive.
