English is not taught in many schools as French is generally the second language. However, the need for English teachers is growing (though still quite small) as Mali breaks into the global market.
Two attacks in early March 2015, in Bamako and Kidal, underscore the ongoing terrorist threat in Mali. The Australian Government continues to advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel to parts of southern Mali and not to travel to all other areas, including Bamako.
If you are indeed interested in still teaching in the country (which has lots to offer despite its problems, and a great need for teachers because of its problems), we suggest you research the current climate fully.
