As we all know the Foundation Year programs at state universities in the UAE will be phased out by 2018.

What are your thoughts on the effect this will have on English language teachers, especially for those with experience and MA degrees in TESOL?

Will the market dry up?

2018 is probably wishful thinking... but, the market will certainly not improve. They will still need the teachers to teach them English, but it will probably be through language institutes with lower pay and benefits... but that is merely my guess. No one really knows yet what will happen...
