Oil companies in Yemen provide most of the best job positions but in general there is not a local structure for EFL teaching. The number of private school using English as medium for the curriculum is on the increase.
The cost of living in this country is quite low and salaries from private schools are good. However, Yemen is considered a dangerous destination. There are many ELT schools. The best ones will mostly hire well-qualified native English speakers.
If you wish to contact schools directly, registered users can see our recommended list in Section 10 of this page.
See subsequent sections for more detailed comments.
The Republic of Yemen, commonly known as Yemen, is a country located in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. Its capital and largest city is Sana'a.
It is the only state in the Arabian Peninsula to have a purely republican form of government. Yemen was the first country in the Arabian peninsula to grant women the right to vote. Yemeni unification took place on 22 May 1990, when North Yemen was united with South Yemen, forming the Republic of Yemen. The majority of Yemen's population is divided into tribal groups, especially in the northern areas of the country where 85% of local residents belong to various tribes There are also small groups of peoples of Turkish/Ottoman and possibly Veddoid origin in urban areas. The majority of the population are Sunni Muslims following the Shafi'i school.
