Syria is located in southwest Asia and borders the Mediterranean, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey. The official language of Syria is Arabic.

Most educated Syrians speak English; however, English is not widely understood in Syria. Therefore, the market for teaching English there is flourishing. Syrian ESL learners are driven by a desire to enhance their communication skills so as to excel in business and academia on a global level.

Interestingly, the Syrian government rewards its employees for their command of the English language by funding an English scholarship program. The goal is for employees who are awarded the scholarship to succeed in their careers and thus enable the Syrian government to make greater advancement. This demonstrates the need for English teachers in this country.

There are job opportunities in private language schools in Syria. Many of those are in Damascus. On average, teachers receive a modest salary per month.Teaching in Syria Some of the highest paying teaching positions are in the Middle East. Teaching English in the Syria requires prior experience. If you are a seasoned professional, we will support you all the way in your goal to teach English in Syria.

Following the breakup of the Ottoman Empire during World War I, Syria was administered by the French until independence in 1946. In the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, Syria lost the Golan Heights to Israel. Syrian troops - stationed in Lebanon since 1976 in an ostensible peacekeeping role - were withdrawn in April of 2005. Over the past decade, Syria and Israel have held occasional peace talks over the return of the Golan Heights.

Teach in Poland & Eastern Europe


Poland is one of the largest countries in Eastern Europe. It was the re legalization of the trade union Solidarity and the agreement to hold partially free parliamentary elections that appeared to have opened the floodgates of radical reforms that spilled over into other countries of the Soviet bloc. In 1989, a year of drama unmatched in modern history, government after government collapsed in Eastern Europe and politically transformed not only Poland but also East Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, and the Soviet Union itself. English Instruction is now common place in Eastern Europe, as the bridge between the East and West continues to grow.
