My husband and I re-located to Qatar 10 months ago and settled into the relaxed lifestyle very quickly. The only stressful thing in Doha is the driving. The rules are there are no rules. Public Transport is non existent but taxis and limousines are widely available and very reasonably priced.

Doha is expanding massively and with the Asia games being held here in 2006, there are buildings going up, right, left and centre. The cost of living is around the same as in the UK. However I would recommend anyone coming to live here makes sure their accommodation is included in their package as rent is very expensive, with a 2 bedroom apartment costing around 7000 Riyals per month (approx. 1000 GBP).
In my opinion Qatar is ideal for families and couples, but there is not a lot on the social scene for single people. Most single people are here to save money and this is a stepping stone.

I have not taught any EFL as yet, but I am currently studying the Global English Level 2 TESOL course. My plan is to set up Tutoring Courses for both Adults and Children from home. You can earn between 15GBP to 30GBP (tax free) per hour for private tutoring. I aim to do both group lessons and private tutoring.

The TESOL course is fantastic for me as I have a 2 month old baby, therefore I can study and tutor from home and will also be able to pick the hours I work. I cannot wait to get started and look forward to a long and successful EFL career.
