Algeria is the largest country in Africa and the richest in terms of natural resources such as oil and natural gas. The country is also an important spot for tourists and multinationals; therefore, the need for communication becomes necessary and the mastery of English mandatory for every possible job position.

The last decade noticed a growth in the demand of English learning opportunities. English has become a fundamental work tool, transcending its classic, communicative use. People nowadays tend to learn English for professional purposes rather than communication. This development requires the training and hiring of English language teachers, most importantly, certified ones. To satisfy this demand, a big number of international centers, organizations, and foreign languages schools came into existence, offering various types of training and certification programs, such as iTTi TEFL/TESOL certification. The latter trains and certifies people to teach English.

Teaching English remains a booming industry in Algeria considering its image and size. Large parts of the country need to be explored and developed, so they become suitable for living and offer an adequate quality of life. Speaking English in Algeria guarantees you a good career, given the abundance of opportunities throughout the country.

Algiers is one of Algeria’s major cities next to Oran. Several career prospects are available there due to the presence of many industries, as well as corporate offices. Hence, finding a job there should not be difficult provided you have the qualifications and skills which are not available locally.

Teaching Opportunities
There are positions in state schools, language centers, universities, and international schools. Public schools offer the lowest salaries, and teachers in international schools earn the most. Business English is on the rise due to the foreign companies that are attracted by Algeria’s economy. There is also a growing number of centers which offer in-company language training to the employees of various domestic and foreign companies. You need a degree for any paid positions, and the higher your level of education, the better the salary you can expect.

Contract Length
Contracts differ from one month to 24 months.

Salary & Benefits
There are teaching opportunities in Algeria, but salaries are quite low, and resources are minimal. To draw a comparison, one needs to look at the average monthly living expenses and compare them to the teaching salary. The average monthly cost of living is 40,000 to 50,000 DZD (US $296 – $370). The average monthly teaching income is 110,000 – 221,000 DZD (US $815 – $1,635). This income comes with free healthcare and vacation. As it is most everywhere, the higher your education, the more you will earn.

While the facilities are better in major cities such as Algiers, Oran, etc., you may find poor conditions in remote areas of Algeria. Be prepared that the medical staff speaks Arabic or French.

Culture in Algeria
Algerian culture is a fascinating mix of African and Arab characteristics with a strong French influence. Islam is the dominating force in this conservative country. Foreigners who come from more liberal societies may have to adjust for some time.

Languages Spoken
The main languages are Arabic and Berber. Due to the French occupation, many people speak French. Until recently, English didn’t play an important role in society; however, if you are in certain jobs and due to the ever-increasing global trade, English is gaining more and more importance. To integrate, learn Arabic or at least French.

The main, dominating religion is Islam. As such, women are expected to cover their legs and shoulders in public. Public demonstration of affection is looked at as improper and so is cohabitation of an unmarried couple.

Food & Drinks
Algerian food is Arabic with African and French influences: rice, fresh fruit and vegetables, lamb, and fish as proteins. There are some international restaurants available in Algiers or Oran, major cities in Algeria. They are mostly Italian, French, and Indian.

Alcohol is not openly available. You won’t find it on the menu. Some upscale restaurants serve it, but it is not shown on the menu. A few stores across the country sell it discreetly.

As a TEFL center in Algeria, our role consists of satisfying the ever-increasing demand for English teacher certification of the broad public along with providing schools with certified EFL teachers to cover their increasing need for highly qualified English-teaching personnel.
