Here is a great Manual For Germany by the Federal Government Commissioner
for Migration, Refugees and Integration available in English in PDF as well as on the web in several other languages.
The Handbook for Germany can no longer be found at that address, however, it is still available at:
web.archive.org

I have offered to write regular articles on the red tape in Germany for MELTA News (the newsletter the Munich English Language Teachers' Association sends
out to its members) every three months and will also post them here.




The first article in the series was about freelance teaching and the myth about freelance teachers being classified as 'Scheinselbständig'.

If you are new to Germany or are thinking about moving to Germany to teach English and have a few questions, please don't be afraid to ask... we may not know the answer to every question you have, but we'll do our best.
