    English Teaching in Sudan

    English Teaching In Sudan

    Boyd English Centres in Khartoum, Sudan, is looking for young and enthusiastic English teachers. You don?t need teaching experience but not to say it wouldn?t help. Most important is an outgoing personality and an ability to work in alien cultural surroundings.

    The Centre

    BEC is a new start-up institute that offers private English tuition to school children, students, NGO workers and business people. We aim to become the best centre in Sudan for private tuition. The centre is located in central Khartoum.

    All classes are one to one but we hope to expand to give classes in the future.

    Charity

    BEC is a business institution but we also encourage our staff to take on work at other institutions around the city for those less fortunate. We work specifically with a charity for South Sudanese refugees in the city.

    Sudan

    Sudan is one of the more troubled countries in a troubled region but the conflicts are restricted to the periphery. What you read in the press is mostly true but Sudan is a large country and the current problems do not affect Khartoum directly. You will find that the Sudanese people are unbelievably generous, hospitable, friendly and kind. You will often find people going out of their way to help you in everyday life.

    Sudan is a Muslim country and its official language is Arabic. For those wanting to learn Arabic Sudan is a great destination.

    Khartoum

    In contrast with the periphery, Khartoum is undoubtedly one of the safest cities in the world and there is almost none of the crime normally associated with cities in the developing world. The weather is extremely hot but not unbearably so and you will soon get used to it.

    Not everything that you might want is available in Khartoum but most things are. Anything that has to be imported is expensive, even by Western standards, but other things are very cheap. Alcohol and pork are strictly illegal but we have good contacts so don?t think that just because you?re in the desert that it will never rain!

    Benefits

    We offer accommodation, (either at the centre or an apartment nearby), work permits and a local salary equivalent to approximately $300 per month. We also offer reimbursement for flights on the completion of a 12-month contract.

    If you are interested or would like to find out more please send a brief c.v. and a letter of interest to boydenglishcentres@gmail.com

    You will need to attend an informal interview in person or on skype.
