If you are wanting to learn about the culture of Africa, teaching in Nairobi, Kenya is an ideal destination. The capital city of Nairobi will offer you a truly authentic African experience. While more than 50 languages are spoken throughout the country, English is taught in the school system, and there is always a demand for English teachers.
The vast landscapes and experiences that surround this city cannot be missed. Paying jobs in private schools are available, and offer enough to pay monthly costs of $500. If you live in the more rural parts of this astonishingly beautiful country, costs will be lower, and volunteer opportunities more plentiful.
