Why choose a CELTA/TEFL in Dubai?

Teaching English in Dubai is a lucrative way for expats to migrate to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate is a major entry requirement. Taking a TEFL in Dubai is an opportunity to live in a world-class city and get absorbed into the ESL market. There are no taxes on salaries and ESL teachers are paid very well. Typically, teaching English is one of the most respected occupations in the city.

Although the official language of Dubai is Arabic, English is also widely spoken, making ESL positions more demanding. However, a TEFL certificate recognised by the Dubai government like the CELTA certification or the TESOL certification puts you at the forefront where employers can easily notice you among a pool of candidates.

Monthly salary for TEFL qualified teachers in Dubai is quite attractive between AED 8,500 to AED 25,000 with incentives, including airfare. A beginner teacher who has just earned a TEFL certificate in Dubai will be able to make enough to live comfortably and save. Furthermore, the large international community ensures that ESL teachers from foreign countries feel at home within the state.
