To elaborate a little more, I'm really just looking for a summer to summer "life experience" in a new country and culture; in essence, just something I'd really like to do before returning to school for another 4+ years. I suppose you could say I'm looking to teach English as an excuse to travel.

Any personal experiencies and/or advice would be much appreciated!

- David

P.S. I have roughly $6,000 USD to invest in this 'adventure' ... perhaps a little something to assist in getting situated whilst searching for work. Could I get by on this?

Hi David
It is not that easy finding a temp post teaching English in Israel in the summer. They are few and far between as there are a lot of EFL teachers here who also work during the summer. A lot of the kids who can afford it go off to summer schools in the UK or US.
I know that both Berlitz and Wall Street have franchises in Israel so check out their web sites for info.
Tel Aviv has just been ranked 17th in a cost of living survey so it is not cheap but if you travel it is cheaper.

You may be better off to come to Israel to travel and go on to another country to teach EFL.

Hope that helps a bit

Shalom
Barry
