Nonetheless, in light of the little size and the huge number of neighbourhood individuals capable of communicating in English, it is a small and exceptionally competitive job market that foreign English teachers need to arrange.

Candidates showing up for the interview will be liable for their lodging and airfare however a few exemptions consistently exist. The wages are adequate to permit the English teachers to carry on with an average comfortable life. Accommodation usually is those that are cleared by past teachers while many offer spaces to their co-workers. A typical work week contains around 20-25 hours with a lot of extra time for exploring. For additional income, most decide on giving private tuitions.

There is a concentration of English-teaching occupations in the significant Israeli urban communities of Rishon LeZion, Haifa, Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv. A certification in TEFL/TESOL course in Israel is a vital necessity for most of the teaching positions.

Teaching opportunities are typically low-paying or in volunteer positions such as refugee camps.
