Was just lookig at the work conditions of ESL in Jeddah. Pay is good but surprised to see that only 21 vacation days were possible.

perhaps I am extremely ignorant of Saudi Arabia, but aren't there significant periods of the year where people don't engage in studying because of the extreme heat of summer or Islamic observances. i thouht this added up to over 30 days Embarassed

Please show mercy on profane creatures such as myself (who obviously came up with little other than Koranic <appropriate reverance here> Quotes on my Google search of holidays). Any comments or PMs on ELS Jeddah would be nice also.

The school you mention is a private one so normal school hols do not apply.

You will go crazy if you only get 21 days hols a year.

I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.
