Travel & Teach - Germany


There is a strong demand in Germany for learning English and plenty of private language schools. Since English is well taught in schools, much of the demand comes from adults, where you can expect to be teaching general and business English. 

The German government gives incentives to companies to invest in training their work force and while many may opt for computer training, others offer courses in English, which means there are many well paid positions in the business and commercial sector for EFL teachers.

Pay and opportunities are good, although you will be likely working for schools on a self-employed contract. This does mean you can freelance and set your hours etc.

Tips for teaching English in Germany:

The courses we would recommend for Germany are:

* dress for business and present a professional CV/resume
* learn some German which is useful for socialising and networking
