    I had a colleague who taught there and enjoyed it although this was several years ago. He left while Hezbollah were exchanging rockets with the Israeli army and went back again once they had finished.

    Sorry but I no longer work with this person. All I know is that he had a positive experience.

    If no-one else here can provide information on Lebanon, maybe you could try expat forums or (shudder) Dave's ESL outfit?

    There is a chain of schools originating in Lebanon which operates on behaviourist principles. Staff are generally graduates but are not required to be qualified teachers. They are issued with a manual of instruction which must be followed to the letter. Clearly, this allows the 'teacher' little or no scope for flexibility or creativity.

    The current head of EY at my school worked there for 4 years and loved it. Although she was comparing it to the "sh@t shower" she worked at in Spain (her words).

    Have you looked on Search for the different schools details? They will tell you exactly how much each school pays, what they provide in their package, and how much tax you pay.

    Of the four schools mentioned in the International Schools Review, two look like they're reasonable places to work. The reviews portray the country in a very positive manner. We can't mention the names on this forum. On the *** you can, but as many many people have repeated ad nauseam on TES, many reviews on *** need to be taken with a bucket load of salt. However, it is in these situations (reports being second hand comments only) where *** is at its most useful
