Israel is well-known throughout the world for its Biblical landmarks and religious history. Many Israelis are fairly well versed in the English language due to its inclusion in the public education system and the popularity of American media. While there is a very small ESL market, ESL teachers may find the job search easier once in the country.

The combination of Oxford Seminars' internationally recognized TESOL/TESL/TEFL Certification and the Graduate Placement Service included with the course makes teaching English abroad a reality.  Learn more about teaching English in Israel and other opportunities teaching English abroad by calling 1-800-779-1779, or by attending an upcoming free Information Session in your area.
