Bahrain is a fascinating place to visit and to work in, an archipelago of over thirty islands, east of Saudi Arabia. It doesn't have a common boundary with any other country - instead, it has an amazing 100 miles of coastline, not bad for a country only a little larger than the Isle of Man. It has a really quite pleasant climate which, though sometimes very hot, is dry and benefits from the sea breezes. Because the population of Bahrain does not include many English speakers, they welcome teachers, who are interested in teaching abroad, who can help them address this; they intend to become self sufficient in all respects in the future. This means that no expatriate can become a citizen of Bahrain and most contracts are finite. This will all be made clear when you apply for teaching jobs in Bahrain and in fact you will need a sponsor before you can go and work there, so it will all be done according to the letter of the law. Bahrain is a conservative Islamic country and there are certain things that are not allowed, the main ones being unmarried couples living together and homosexuality. It is important to read about the code of conduct and bear this in mind before moving there because there are no exceptions. Salaries are very generous and there is often a bonus at the end of the contract. Bearing in mind the relatively small size of Bahrain, there is a lot of diversity in the people who live there and although some of their laws seem quite stringent, it is by no means the strictest Arab nation. There are only just over a million native Bahrainis in contrast to over a quarter of a million expatriates of various nations. Although they don't share a border as such, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are linked by the King Fahd Causeway and there are plans to link it to Qatar as well by a causeway which will be the world's longest. This means that there are plenty of opportunities for sightseeing from Bahrain, possibly more than in most other Arab states. Bahrain is very proud of being the venue for the Bahrain Grand Prix and many tourists flock to the country when this is being held. If motor sport doesn't do it for you, there is a UNESCO World Heritage site on the archipelago, the supposed ancient harbour and capital of the land of Telmun, which, like Troy, is half a myth and half a reality but no one knows exactly where it lay. You can enjoy a very good standard of living whilst working in Bahrain and also see a part of the world which is still a relatively unusual holiday destination. Many people set aside a few years in their teaching career to teach in Bahrain, either as a jumping off point for some travelling, paid for by their working there, or as a way of boosting their income for a deposit on a home or similar purchase. Whatever the reason for teaching in Bahrain, it will certainly be a pleasurable interlude.
