Algeria has invited Indians to teach English in its universities. With five per cent of its people proficient in the language, the largely Arabic and French-speaking African nation needs around 250 English teachers.

The government is keen to have Indian educators as they have great educational advantage in subjects like English, science and mathematics. Besides, Indian education standards are very high, Ambassador Mohammed Hacene Echarif told news agency IANS. The embassy has said the candidates who will be offered a monthly salary of €2,000, free accommodation and transport with good annual increment. Around 3,000 Indians are already working in the country, which now wants to reduce its dependency on the West.
