MONEY is an important part of all jobs. It’s a necessity and therefore one of the reasons why we work.

Four things to never discuss in a Saudi Arabia classroom

Saudi Arabia classroom don’ts. The idea of choice doesn’t really crossover in a lot of cultures. Not that there is no choice, but the idea itself: that one has a choice and it’s their right if they make that choice or not. This was very difficult for a lot of my students to understand.
