Egypt is a fantastic location if you want to see and experience the heritage from the ancient world, such as the Pyramids and temples that have made this country famous. English is still in high demand.
Culturally Egypt is a fascinating country with generally warm and welcoming people. Cairo, although noisy and polluted, is a promising first stop for the new teacher, as demand for learning English is enormous. Teaching standards in the state sector vary so that school students attend extra private classes in many subjects, outside of regular school hours. However, expect much of the demand to come from the business sector.
Tips for teaching English in Egypt:
* take a quality, accredited TESOL course such as the TESOL Premier 120-hour course
* consider the 30-hour Teaching Business English course to set yourself apart from others if you'd like to teach Business English
