According to the Huffington Post UK, Turkey has seen a recent dramatic surge in potential English teachers wishing to work in the country.
Almost certainly helped by the sharp rise in tourism, there has been an increasing demand for the English language, thereby making it easier than ever before for native English speakers to find employment in Turkey. Despite enduring many troubles in the past, from which it is still recovering, investment in language schools, particularly those which teach English, is growing as Turkey becomes stronger in the global marketplace.
English teachers will find that they receive a particularly warm welcome, as they are likely to be seen as a huge asset to a place where more interaction with the wider world is sought out actively. Also, in being both a part of Europe and the gateway to the Middle East, the mixture of cultures is sure to be a draw for many more English teachers in the future.
