Turkey is a country with amazing diversity. Each region holds distinct culture, practices, history and beliefs. The country is intersected by Europe and Asia, creating an interesting juxtaposition of culturally mixing and clashing. The people are extremely friendly to foreigners, and the geography is stunning and varied. Traveling through Turkey is an experience one will never forget. Most of the jobs tend to be located in urban centres such as Istanbul, Izmir, and Ankara. There are many jobs available, especially if you hold a bachelor degree and a good TEFL certificate. The salary is decent, although cost of living is high. EFL teachers will most likely break even in this country with little savings. The average salary for an EFL position is $1000 – $1250US per month.
