Teaching Spots – Venice, Italy

Dear Teachers,

Ah, Venezia! Historic, unique and beautiful, aside from its famous past, Venice has not only one of the most lavish film festivals in Europe, but it also has the distinction of being Europe’s first (1932)! With a number of small historic towns easily accessible from Venice, this region of North-eastern Italy is a prime location for ESL teachers looking for work at international schools and universities, small private schools and summer camps. Though Italy does have pretty strict policies about exclusively hiring EU citizens, the general advice seems to suggest . . .

. . . seems to suggest that, yes, Americans CAN find work in Italy, jobs abound, and already being “on the ground” with the ability to interview face-to-face can greatly aid your chances. Additionally, being able to speak Italian, having an internationally recognized TESOL certificate and being prepared to work as a private tutor can all help you find the job you want and make enough money to support yourself.


Here are some additional sites that offer some specific and useful information, starting with a few discussions at our very own ESL-Jobs-Forum.com:
