Hi everyone!

I'm an EFL teacher who holds a degree, a CELTA B and am currently part way through my MA TESOL and Applied Linguistics. I have been teaching for 5 years in Korea, UK and Greece. My experience mainly lies with young learners although I do have some adult exam experience. I'm currently teaching in an elementary school in South Korea and am thinking about my next steps for next September time. A friend of mine who works as a science teacher in Koln really recomended me to work in Germany. She mentioned there are TEFL jobs within international schools with young learners? I scoured the internet but am not having much luck. So I just want to ask what kind of jobs can I get here? I prefer young learners but am open to adults too. Any info on where to find jobs/pay/ vacation etc would be helpful!

Cheers in Advance,

Emma

Oh and my German skills are basic at best from 2 years of high school. But I could learn fast and would take lessons. I'm used to learning languages or attempting to wherever I live e.g. greek or korean. Oh and I'm British and 28.

Hi Emma,

I also have a CELTA qualification and have been working as a freelance English teacher in Berlin for the past 6 months.
There are many English teachers here, so it is competetive, and although I originally sent my CV to lots of language academies, I received no reply. I then decided to register as a freelancer, and have since found enough 1-to-1 students and online work to keep me going (Berlin is very cheap to live in too). I would recommend you create an advert for craigslist, ebay kleinanzeigen and other websites, and see if anyone responds. Craigslist is also a great website for job searching. I am also currently working as an online teacher for Learnship Networks, and I know they are always looking for new trainers, so maybe you could also send them an application? With a CELTA course and a degree, you are definitely at an advantage!

Good luck
