After a very thorough search I found a company that teaches Saudis in TX.

They are SSI- ANC- please Google it. However, I found out that they only give one week vacation per year and you need to teach 6 hours a day.

I tried to negotiate a longer vacation but they refused. However, many people gladly accepted a job with them.

The pay is 52-58K a year.

That position is typical of DLIELC jobs (http://www.dlielc.edu/).

I was referring to their usage of DLI curriculum. From SSI-ANC's job posting:
    Will instill improved English language skills to students at a pace that meets or exceeds the Defense Language Institute English Language Center (DLIELC) standards per the Defense Language Institute Programming Time Calculator.

    ELT will provide students with a total immersion (face-to-face instruction in the classroom and associated facilities) in the American English language for six (6) hours a day, 5 days per week, using DLIELC’s American Language Course (ALC) General ELT course materials.

Take a pass. Sounds like a sweatshop and I'll guarantee you one thing...the Saudi noncom-poops rule the roost there...

"DLIELC jobs" and "DLI curriculum" do not equate to me.

But what do I know? I'm just a native speaker of the language...

Those Sheppard jobs are for mercenaries...no job protection and, I know of a self-promoting redhead just moved there who'll throw you under a bus.
