Hi. I'm a college student working toward my TEFL certificate.

For my Teaching EFL 1 class, my group needs to present a cultural spotlight and listening microteaching activity on Ethiopia. If anyone has any experience teaching English in Ethiopia, it would be really helpful for our project.

Please message me if you can give me any information, or if you know someone else who can.

Thanks,

Rose

Hey!

Great to hear that your guys are doing some work on Ethiopia. The country needs more advertising.

Let me share some of my experience.

I have been teaching in Addis Ababa for the last 2 years. It was hard in beginning. Coming to a foreign country can be rather frustrating. However, everything turns out great.

I am a primary teacher and am working with KG students. All of my students are lovely and eager to demonstrate their knowledge as soon as they get a chance. The children are making Ethiopia a special place. I am also working with dedicated and passionate people working towards a great vision - developing a country that can give so much to the world!

I am interested in teaching in Ethiopia but feel a bit put off by some of the comments in the Gibson Youth Academy thread. If anyone else had positive experiences in Ethiopia, please share them.

Martin, can you elaborate on your experiences in Addis Ababa? Any advice you would give or any suggestions of good places to work? Thanks.

Also, if anyone else who has lived and worked in Ethiopia has got any suggestions that'd be really useful.

A good contact would be Stephanie Mills, who is co-founder of English Alive Academy in Nazret, Ethiopia. Rather than my posting her email here, you can contact her via website at www.englishaliveacademy.org.

She's lived and worked in Ethiopia for more than 10 years, all the time in the education field. She's knowledgeable about a number of the schools in Addis Ababa.

I volunteer taught at the English Alive Academy for a couple of weeks earlier this year.

I've heard several people say that they've heard negative things about GYA, but I'm wondering what types of things those are: is it a scam, bad working conditions, rip off, etc? I don't want to get caught in a scam, but if people are just unhappy due to low pay, that's something that might be tolerable.
