Turkey is still eager to become a fully-fledged member of the European Union and there is a general feeling that a positive attitude towards English language learning is going to help. This, buoyed by a dramatic increase in tourism over the recent years has seen demand for English grow quite rapidly. If you are attracted by the sights and sounds of Turkey, then this is an excellent first post on your teaching journey.

* consider the 20-hour Teaching English Online course to help you through any gaps in employment
