Teaching English in Lebanon 101

A relatively small market for English teachers, Lebanon is known for its cosmopolitan capital of Beirut, spectacular natural beauty, exquisite cuisine and the broad cultural and religious diversity of its population.  

Most first-time English teachers will gain employment by interviewing in person once they arrive in Lebanon, and they will also be responsible for their airfare, as well as housing.  Wages are not high, but due to the lower cost of living they typically enable English teachers to live a comfortable life.  Many teachers share an apartment with other English teachers or expats. Schools typically offer around 20-30 hours per week of work, leaving you plenty of opportunity to travel and explore.  Giving private lessons is a popular way to supplement your income while working as a teacher.

English jobs in Lebanon are concentrated in Beirut, Tripoli, Sidon, Byblos, Tyre and other major cities. 

Most schools prefer to employ English teachers with a BA & definitely a TEFL certificationPlease note, that while a Bachelor’s degree is not required to secure a job in this country, it still can be strongly preferred by employers. If you do not have a degree, you should be prepared for a more competitive job search.
