Many TEFL teachers trade off the really high tax-free jobs available in neighbouring countries to earn a very respectable salary here in a country which offers a lifestyle closer to what they are used to; many TEFL teachers who work in Saudi commute from Bahrain so that they can relax in a more familiar environment each evening. The people are friendly, the food delicious, and there’s plenty to do. Bahrain is also an easy country to visit so that family and friends can visit easily, similar to the UAE.

But what’s it really like? Here we interview a British teacher, Dave, and ask him for his reflections on working in countries around the Gulf.
