Kuwait is a small oil-rich Islamic country on the Arabian (Persian) Gulf. TEFL teachers are drawn to Kuwait by the lucrative tax-free salary* and other contractual benefits. Whatever you have heard about living and working in Kuwait, many teachers who have adapted to the environment return again and again. Working in Kuwait also offers the possibility for promotion in areas of TEFL which might not be so readily available elsewhere such as curriculum development, Quality Assurance, and even Academic Training Manager (ATM) which has a similar role to that of a headmaster.
*Unfortunately, this does not apply to Canadians who are taxed at home, but often the salary factors this in to the final package.
