Brainstorming summer employment opportunities in Arabic-speaking countries.
I've been studying Modern Standard Arabic for a year and a half now. By year's end, I'll have four semesters under my belt and I feel that I'll be ripe for some immersion. Lacking the cash and the time to truly "study" abroad, I'm looking for employment opportunities over the summer in Arabic-speaking countries where the income would offset both the cost of living and the cost of my airfare (from NE US).
As far as skills/interests go, I'm not fluent in Arabic yet, so translation is out. I'm considering TESOL/TEFL/CELTA (see below). Last year, I supported myself in Rome for two months working in hostels and busking with my guitar. I'm also an NREMT-B, and I wouldn't be averse to doing medical/healthcare work abroad.
So far, I've looked into this
TESOL/TEFL program in Alexandria, but I haven't found any information on what I'd expect to make If I were to spend three months (one training, two teaching) in Egypt. There's also a tuition fee of $1590, but it covers a month of room/board/sightseeing trips.
Basically, I'm looking for something to do for three months in an Arabic-speaking country that will be, at the very least, income neutral. Any help would be much appreciated.
