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.”

Guelma, the ancient Roman province Calama, is a town in Algeria situated in the Northeast. It is surrounded by mountains of nearly 2,000 feet high, wrapped by olive trees, and has adopted the French style of streets lined by shady trees. Guelma had also been known for being a bishopric of St. Possidius, the former student and biographer of St. Augustine.

The city is blended with Casbah, Arab, and French military quarters’ architectures, and the ruins of the Roman Theater, museums, public gardens, and baths, in addition to the Thibilis remains. Moreover, the town is famed with the Spa Hammam Meskhoutine the “Bath of Dammed” that has the hottest water with a temperature of 97°C, and it is exceeded globally only by that of the Geysers of Iceland. Therefore, Guelma’s richness of historical, natural, and archeological sites make the city one of the favorite destinations for tourists in Algeria.


The school aims at providing high-quality teacher training to Algerian and international speakers of English and prepare them for future careers at domestic or international educational institutions. It is situated in the center of Guelma where accommodations are easily available and accessible.

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.

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.

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.
