How to Begin Teaching in Mauritania

Lost cities,stunning oases, nomads and the romance of the Sahara

Due to the economy and industry, there is a demand for English in the country.

Mysterious Mauritania is a country of desert and ocean. The capital city of Nouakchott is a fascinating mix of traffic jams, unusual architecture and vibrant markets, not too far from a lively fishing harbour. Moving inland you will encounter tough desert terrain which is home to numerous semi-nomadic communities. Tourism is not prevalent in Mauritania so your experiences are guaranteed to be authentic and your destinations untouched. Oil deposits were discovered in 2001 and the effects of this finding remains to be seen.

Be warned: though Mauritania may be beautiful, it is not an LGBT-friendly country.

Teaching Opportunities

Teaching English is still a relatively new industry in Mauritania but it is growing at a rapid rate. Young Mauritanians need English to be able to get jobs and so are motivated and determined to learn. As a result of this interest and backing from the government, institutes and language centres, often in collaboration with UK or US organisations, are popping up all over in Mauritania and in need of teachers. While local teachers earn a very low salary, working in an international school or language centre can earn you a good salary.
