Dear all, I'm considering teaching in Abu Dhabi next academic year. I've been dealing with a company called TeachAway who, so far, appear very professional. I've seen hundreds of forum posts from teachers asking what teaching in Abu Dhabi is like, but very few answering it. Specially, I've not seen any posts from teachers who have gone onto the program and are able to offer their opinions. Has anyone on the forum had experience teaching in AD? Specially, are there any UK trained teachers who have had experience teaching out there? I'm interesting in discovering the following: What teaching styles are acceptable? Is a more didactic approach a negative thing? How do the students behave to the teachers? Is respect automatically gained from being an adult in a Islamic country? How does teaching in UK based state schools differ from teaching in AD? If you want to send me a private message, you're welcome.
