Most people get a surprised look on their faces when Saudi Arabia is mentioned as an EFL destination. While it has some rules that are difficult for some people to accept (no alcohol), it is just another country which has been poorly represented in the media and Hollywood. This country has experienced rapid economic growth, lifting the majority of its population out of poverty. With the growth and push towards international integration, Saudis of all ages are learning English. Salaries are very good for EFL teachers and costs are minimal as most contracts offer plush furnished accommodations, roundtrip airfare, international medical insurance, high bonuses and zero taxes on salaries. So savings are very easy to accumulate. If you are looking for a real adventure off the beaten path, where many do not venture, Saudi Arabia just might appeal to you! The average salary in Saudi Arabia is $2200 – $4000 USD per month.
