A comparative study of English language teacher recruitment, in-service education and retention in Latin America and the Middle East

Average: 3.3 (7 votes)

This report compares the processes of recruitment, education and retention of English language teachers at all levels.

There are six national case studies from Latin America and the Middle East: Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Kuwait, the UAE and the remaining Arabian Gulf countries.

These geographical areas appear to have significant social, economic and political differences, however, as well as providing an interesting insight into the lives of the teachers living and working in each country studied. This report also identifies many commonalities within their English language teaching communities.
