I am new to this:) I am thinking of coming to Turkey to teach english. I am currently thinking about Antalya I would welcome any advice or suggestions about this. Also the job does not provide any accomodation does any one know if it would be easy or hard to find somewhere to live and how much rent would be a month?
I hope some one can help me and I look forward to hearing from you:)

I taught at several private schools in the past.First of all, it's not difficult to get a position as a teacher but you must have at least a TEFL/TESOL Certificate and proof of university diplomas in order to get a work permit here.
Having said that it's also possible to teach at private language schools here but they won't get your work permit for you so that works out expensive for you to get and the pay is usually not very good - about 15 - 20TL an hour. At a lot of private language schools you can get hired without any teaching qualifications.
If you work at a private school (Özel Koleji) some will offer accommodation, others won't.
Salaries range here in Antalya from about 1.250TL - 1.750 TL - much less than in Istanbul.
Finding a flat is easy as there are thousands and thousands of empty flats here in Antalya. If you want a flat, say, with 2 bedrooms in a nice area you are talking about 600 TL minimum.
Hope this helps you.

The language school sector in Antalya is not very well developed. The language schools do not seem to have enough customers to offer teachers full-time, twelve month contracts, and consequently they are extremely reluctant to apply for work permits. The best that most language schools offer seems to be part-time work month by month. There are some signs that the market is improving, though, so it may be worth coming to Antalya and looking around to see what you can sort out. If you are in Antalya drop me a line and I shall be happy to tell you what I know about the local schools.
If you want to work in a language school istanbul is really the best place to start, there are lots of options there.

The type of teaching you can do depends on your qualifications with the best jobs at a university going to those with a good degree in some other desired subject as well as a English teaching qualification.
You would get a higher level of pay in Istanbul but the cost of living is higher there and the apartments are a lot smaller for the same money.
When are you thinking of coming out?

Thank you all so much for your comments. I am hoping to come out soon, I have TEFL and a university degree. My preference is for teaching children, but the jobs I am finding seem to be for teaching adults:( Can anyone advise on finding a job teaching children?
I was offered a job in Adana Does anyone know if this is a nice place to live and work?
Thanks for all the advice:) really appreciate it:)

TED Mersin College http://www.tedmersin.k12.tr/en/
TED Mersin College is comprised of two campuses: TED Mersin Kindergarten in Mezitli, TED Mersin Primary and High School in Çeşmeli.
These campuses are a bit out of the centre, Mersin is a bit cheaper then most cities, there is the huge Mersin Forum shopping centre and many decent bars and restaurants along the coast.

There are lots of private language schools but at those you would most likely be teaching adults
