Quotes from teachers in this region

"There are islands off the coast of the UAE which I have not explored yet, but hear great things about. The UAE location is ideal. Puts you in the middle of the world. A lot of teachers travel to Europe and the Mediterranean and East Asia. Desert safaris are a lot of fun. Many people take up "sandboarding." or take the 4-wheelers out.

The UAE weather is great about 70% of the year. It's breezy and cool now. Mostly sunny with occasional overcast. Months November - January have been very comfortable.

I have really enjoyed the UAE. The money and weather are great. The food is really tasty. Mostly everything is very modern and clean. It's much more English friendly than Korea was. You do not need to learn Arabic because most people understand English.
