Turkey, now Turkiye, 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 very friendly to foreigners, and the geography is stunning and varied.
Most of the jobs tend to be located in urban centres such as Istanbul, Izmir, and Ankara. Due to the Lira devaluing and economic turndown, not many jobs are available, post COVID. Salaries are low, although cost of living is quite low as well. EFL teachers will most likely break even in this country with little savings.
