ESL Jobs in Saudi Arabia: The best TEFL salaries in the world are in Saudi Arabia. If you work here for a decade you should be able to buy a nice house outright back in the West. But that’s if you can handle living in such a place for such a length of time. As with all Gulf States, the ultra-strict Muslim way of life is not particularly compatible with other belief systems and therefore many Westerners will require considerable time to adjust to what can be a stifling and rigid cultural environment. For example, even playing music in public is forbidden. Besides the generous taxfree salaries, the other positive points include the excellent cuisine and opportunities to explore the desert and coastline. Experience is essential and many employers require at least three years. Many teachers complain of a culture of entitlement by rich Saudis who lack motivation to learn and feel they deserve to pass exams with no effort whatsoever. Despite the large expat community and great salaries, life here is hard for Westerners and the rigid laws make it quite difficult to enjoy yourself in your spare time. And western women may finds things especially difficult. Geography: Saudi Arabia is a desert country encompassing most of the Arabian Peninsula, with Red Sea and Persian (Arabian) Gulf coastlines. Known as the birthplace of Islam, it’s home to the religion’s 2 most sacred mosques: Masjid al-Haram, in Mecca, destination of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, and Medina’s Masjid an-Nabawi, burial site of the prophet Muhammad. Riyadh, the capital, is a skyscraper-filled metropolis.
