This research report compares the processes of recruitment, education and retention of English language teachers at all levels in Latin America and the Middle East by means of six national case studies: 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.
