Teaching Spots - Italy

Looking for New Digs?

Good morning everyone!

Do espresso, antipasto and ferraris have a certain pull for you? If you love history, good food eaten s-l-o-w-l-y, expensive automobiles and chic people, Italy might be a great place for you to teach!

Most of us have dreamed of sitting in the Tuscany sun or exploring the landmarks of Rome, but have you ever thought about teaching there?

If you are from the E.U., your chances of . . .

landing a teaching position in Italy are greater, but Americans can find a place in the sun too—if they’re persistent. Most of the schools prefer British English, but there are those that will hire someone who speaks American English. In addition, there is a great opportunity for private classes in Italy because most business people realize that they need to speak English in order to advance their careers. In addition, those professionals are currently enrolling their children in English classes to prepare them for their futures.

You’ll definitely need a teaching certificate for this locale, plus a lot of patience, but if you’re willing to go there and then wait 3-6 months to find your niche, you could soon find yourself sitting in a street café drinking espresso with the locals!

If you're looking for a great teaching location and love a fast paced life filled with networking and good food, why not give Italy a chance?

Let me know how you do!

Until next time,

Michelle
