We have been focusing on teaching requirements primarily in European and Asian countries so far. There are opportunities on every continent however (except Antarctica… but who knows, maybe they need a tutor at a research station!). In Africa, there is a high demand for English teachers, we’re going to give a quick breakdown of the top 5 countries demanding teachers for teaching English in Africa. Here they are before we begin discussing requirements.
Egypt’s demand for English teachers is rising. There are many groups on facebook and other social media sites dedicated to finding jobs in the pyramid rich region. Egypt is a great place to teach and expat life is amazing. The community is already established and you would feel right at home. Not only that, you would be close to many great countries to explore.
A beautiful country with rich culture, although many people simply think of the movie Casablanca when hearing Morocco. Some knowledge of French or Arabic can definitely move you towards the front of the competition. We will be putting up an article going more in-depth about what is needed to secure an English teaching position in Morocco!
With English being an official language, there is a high demand for English teachers. One downside, the pay is sometimes… lacking. While still a rewarding experience, you may dip have to dip into your savings. But just remember, you’ll be in the land of the Masai, the Big 5, and some natural wonders!
While Senegal is a Francophone country, English has begun to catch on and as a result, English teachers are in demand! If you like spicy food, Senegal is a great place to go! Additionally, opportunities for adventure are endless in Senegal! Most opportunities are in the capital, Dakar, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go exploring!
Rwanda is near the top of my personal list of places I’d like to teach someday just so that I may get a glimpse of a silverback Gorilla. In spite of a rather grim past, Rwanda has made incredible strides to improve itself. Be sure to check back as we will be doing an overview of the requirements necessary to teach in Rwanda as well as some of the sights you should see while there!
1) South Africa
Not really a surprise, South Africa tops the list! With English as an official language, teaching opportunities are in demand! You can find them in numerous cities and enjoy a modern cosmopolitan environment. In your free time, there are plenty of places to explore: Mountains, safaris, vineyards, and so much more! We will cover all of these plus teaching requirements in a separate article, so be sure to check back!
Africa is an amazing continent with amazing opportunities. If you’re looking for some adventure and to get (slightly) off the beaten path, be sure to look for opportunities in these and the other countries of Africa!
