Teacher Stories

Neel Shah

“I moved to Doha just over a year ago with my wife and we are both loving life. We have made friends from all over the world as there are so many different communities living here. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in new hobbies and enjoy the great outdoors. Although it’s not quite London or Berlin, there’s also a surprisingly good nightlife scene here and if you need some pork or alcohol for your flat it is possible!

“The Middle East is a great travel hub to explore Africa and Asia, so living over here is an excellent opportunity to explore exotic destinations. I find teaching here to be very enjoyable, with such a diverse student population. There are over 60 nationalities represented in my school!”
