Scam. They will want money up front, and the job doesn't exist.

C'mon. 4,800 USD monthly plus a generous 'feeding allowance' and all those other nice perks for only

....a BA in anything OR any recognized teaching qualification?

Entry level teachers getting specialist salaries and benefits?

Total scam.

lcanupp1964,

I wholeheartedly agree with spiral 78 - this is definitely a SCAM.

Just 5 minutes googling throws up the give away- the country website "tk".

Why would you need "no knowledge of Arabic" to teach in Turkey ?!

See a posting http://www.eslteachersboard.com/cgi-bin/forum/index.pl?re

This answers your question.
