TEFL Course in Algiers

“Basically, being alive means keeping yourself ready for the sky to fall in on you at any time. If you start from the assumption that existence is only an ordeal, a test we have to pass, then you’re equipped to deal with its sorrows and its surprises. If you persist in expecting it to give you something it can’t give, that just proves that you haven’t understood anything. Take things as they come; don’t turn them into a drama. You’re not piloting the ship, you’re following the course of your destiny”

WHY TAKE A TESOL/TEFL COURSE IN Constantine

Best known for being “The City of Suspended Bridges,” Constantine is set to be the capital of eastern Algeria. It is the third-largest city after Algiers and Oran spreading over more than 231 square kilometers. Visitors of the city cannot but notice the beautiful art painting drawn by the intersections of the bridges penetrating the city. Overall, there are more than eight bridges built at different intervals. The most famous of which is the Sidi M’sid Bridge which splits the city into two parts. The rest of the bridges are distributed over the city’s area, and each bridge has its own characteristics, including stone and concrete, some for pedestrians and others for cars; including the bridge of Mallah, the bridge of Sidi Rashed, the bridge of Bab al-Qantara, the bridge of Mjzzen al-Ghanem, the bridge of Shitan, and the bridge of Shallalt.

However, “Cosomtinah” as it is lovingly called by its people, is not merely “The City of Suspended Bridges.” It is par excellence a city of art, science, and history. The latter is embedded within the rifts of its rocky land retelling the stories of harmonious coexistence and the succession of civilizations from ancient times. Hence, it is a book of a thousand pages that transcribes the accounts of Nomads, Romans, Jews, Turks, Arabs, and the French. It is, thus, a city of a thousand faces. Any pedestrian in the streets of Constantine is able to witness the cultural momentum that the city has experienced. In an hour, one moves from the Jewish quarter, through the Great Mosque. He is then met by Roman arches that lead him at last to the French buildings in the center of the city; not far from it are the Ottoman palaces.

The city’s valleys overflow with the poetry of Malek Haddad and Kateb Yassine. There, Abdel Hamid Ben Badis studied and left his footprints. In every corner of the city, the echo of Enrico Macias singing and playing his guitar on the top of the plateau is heard. The city bears the name of Constantine, the Roman emperor who ruled it for a long time. The hearts of its citizens are attached to its last ruler, the last Constantine governor in the Ottoman era before its fall to the French in 1838. His name is “Ahmed Bey,” whose memory is deeply ingrained in the people.

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 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.

Healthcare System in Algeria
Public healthcare is provided free of charge to all Algerian citizens. 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 speak Arabic or French.

Your employer will register you for health insurance. Depending on your contract, they will pay for it entirely or make a deduction from your salary.

Pharmacies
There are plenty around, they open every day and have weekend service. Pharmacies are an important place of where to get health information.

Emergency Service
Dial 112 on your cell phone. The operator speaks French. Have your embassy contact information in reach.

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.

Religion
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.
