Many teachers are paid part of their salaries in US Dollars or English Pounds to make transferring money easier. Many schools will pay for your accommodation and it is possible to live very comfortably by teaching English in Egypt.
TEFL Jobs in Cairo
Cairo is the country’s (and the continent’s) biggest city and home to much of Egypt’s financial, commercial and mercantile industry. As always where international trade thrives, a demand for a workforce fluent in English usually follows, and Cairo is now the main place to find TEFL jobs in Egypt.
TEFL Jobs in Alexandria
Alexandria sits on the shores of the Mediterranean and has a faded, belle-époque glamour athat soon gets under your skin. Demand for TEFL teachers in private language institutes seems to remain pretty constant and the cool breezes of the Med make even the hottest days of the African summer a little more bearable.

Luxor is home to a number of the country’s top tourism training centres, and so the demand for qualified TEFL teachers to teach English in Luxor is pretty high and pretty steady. All the temples and archaeological sites also mean that you won’t be short of things to do when you’re not teaching!
