  1. Hello all, Any response to my question below will be appreciated: Is there an age requirement to be an English teacher in Turkey? I know in some countries there is an age limit for hiring teachers, but I have been told age is not a requirement in Turkey, which I hope it is true!
  2. Thank you so much for your helpful information, Fil. I live in California and it would be ideal if I could secure a job in Turkey before moving there. In the hope to make that happen I have sent a couple of emails in English to universities in Istanbul and Izmir, but I have not received any responses as of today; perhaps the language barrier is the reason. Would you know of any other way of trying my luck? Is there any possibility the school you teach in would have any vacancies? I am projecting to start teaching after the summer of 2021 as I am hoping the pandemic will have eased a little by then. Best Regards, Sam
  3. I just saw these messages about gun ownership in Turkey. So, how necessary is it to have a firearm in Istanbul or in Turkey in general? I take it being in possession of a firearm is not as ubiquitous as it is in the US!? I hop I am right!
  4. I do appreciate your response! It would be ideal for me to have a job ready before leaving California but it's been almost a year since I have been trying to find a teaching job in Istanbul or Izmir by checking different websites, but to no avail! I have submitted applications with my resume attached and have also sent emails to two universities, one in Istanbul and another in Izmir to the heads of the English departments, but again i have gotten no response. I'm going to go ahead and check the link you sent me and try my luck there. In the end, if I don't get anything, I'll check out schools in person when i travel to Istanbul in March. Thank you again for your kindness and your helpful information.
  5. I am travelling to Istanbul in March and since I don't speak any Turkish, l was wondering if anyone can suggest any local tour guide for the short time of my stay there to help me get around. If the potential guide would be able to help me find universities and language schools to apply for a teaching position, that will be even better!
  6. I hold a B.A. in Linguistics and an MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), both from reputable universities in the US. I also have a TEFL/TESOL certificate and years of experience in teaching English. I am a US citizen but I'm considering working and living in Istanbul. Will my qualifications bring me a teaching job in universities in Istanbul or anywhere in Turkey?
