Date posted:2006-12-11 | Writer: American Language Center | Email: [email protected]

American Language Center (ALC) in Yemen is a fun and friendly private establishment that offers short (5 week) courses in English language instruction. Our students are aged 13 to adult and are either sponsored by various organisations or are private students. With native English speakers from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the USA and local Yemeni teachers, ALC is becoming the most popular and successful English language school in the port city of Aden. We're expanding rapidly and are looking to add another native English-speaking teacher to our staff.

Here's a basic contract:

Job: English teacher
Starting date: December 16th, 2006
Requirements: Degree + TESOL or equivalent certification, experience preferred
Place of work: Aden, Republic of Yemen
Contract duration: 6 months or 12 months
Working hours: Full-time (6 hours per day) weekdays. Mornings and/or afternoons depending on class schedule; weekends off
Session duration: 5 weeks (week-long unpaid break follows each session)
Salary (minimum and tax-free): U.S. $700.00 per session (if we pay for your airfare) OR- U.S. 900.00 per session (If you pay for your own airfare) the cost of living here is very low.

ALC pays for your entry visa, work permit, shared accommodation and (if you take U.S. 700.00 per session salary) your airfare to and from your country of origin. Optional overtime, free field trips and free Arabic classes are also on offer.

We use New Interchange, Passages, Global Links and Yemeni governmental curricula depending on which class(es) you are assigned. We also conduct TOEFL preparation and computing courses. We have local teachers to handle brand new students to English who still need instruction in Arabic you'll most likely have students in Level 2 and above. Yemeni students are a pleasure to teach since they are easy-going and eager to learn, and we keep class sizes below 15 where we can (but not more than 20 where we can't).

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


The different exam types presented in this course have given me a useful insight into how to successfully grade a student's individual ability in different areas of language learning and those students' English progress in learning and understanding as a whole. It is very useful to know that there are also external exams that students can take which could give them a more widely recognised certification in language.Productive skills such as speaking and writing are learnt through various methods. Teachers can encourage their students and make them comfortable. For instance, by allowing group or pairs to work together, they will in turn be encouraged to interact with one another and play off each others strengths. The principles used for creating a flow in the students learning experience do not change from speaking to writing.
