Not so long ago I had a message from someone who is thinking of teaching in [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] I would be VERY reluctant to work for a school in Saudi Arabia with an Arabic name. I once had the misfortune to teach at a school in Jeddah, the thick ear school. It was an experience that I would not wish upon my worst enemy. Just because a school does (or does not) have a review in the *** is not, in itself, proof that it is wonderful school in which to teach. Nor does it prove that it is an absolutely horrible place. It just means that, for many possible reasons, no one has got round to writing a review yet. Yes, of course a school's own website will look great. That is what school websites are meant to do. Whether or not the school really is so wonderful is another matter altogether. Has the school given you the e-mail addresses of two or three teachers who are currently teaching at the school? Why not? Without wishing to seem to be appallingly racist, I must say that would not want to teach at any school where the majority of the students were Saudis. You may think that this is a bad or negative thing to say, but you must remember that Saudi Arabia is a country in which foreigners have few (if any) rights and freedoms. If a Saudi (or a Qatari) parent makes a complaint about you (probably over the phone to the owner of the school, as they will not bother communicating with the headmaster or the headmistress), then you will find it almost impossible to defend yourself. You must be in the wrong because you are a foreigner and an infidel. You will not be able to defend yourself or answer any accusations if you do not speak Arabic. It is no good contacting your teaching union because unions are illegal in Saudi Arabia. Do not think that the British Embassy will help you because they won't, as the British Embassy will be too busy making sure that another huge arms contract gets signed and sealed.
