Teaching English in Jordan

A more modest job market for English teachers that are facing fast development, Jordan is well known for its shocking remains of old locales like Petra and Jerash and their warm friendly nature, and the customary Bedouin culture. Arabic is the official language of Jordan, however, the nation has a long custom of English use, at one point being under administration of Great Britain as a component of the League of Nations Mandates System that was basically until 1946.

The normal course of interview for first-time English teachers is by face to face interviews, upon their arrival in the country with candidates being responsible for their lodging and airfares. High wages are not on offer, but rather the normally minimal effort/expense of living permits English educators to have a comfortable lifestyle. It is normal for teachers to share accommodation with their associates. A regular work week involves 20-30 hours and leaves the educators with a lot of time to investigate the tremendous history and antiquated culture of the locale. Teachers regularly hope to bring in some additional earning through private tuitions.

Preferred employment is given to those English teachers having a 4-year BA degree along with TEFL certification. Major cities such as Amman usually have a concentration of most of the English teaching jobs.
