Where better to start your EFL career than the birthplace of Western civilisation. The country boasts attractive countryside, islands with sandy beaches and blue seas, as well as mountains for the more adventurous who like to go hiking or skiing.
Outside the cities there is a sense of travelling back in time when you visit the small villages. You’ll find Greek people are friendly and welcoming and will often sit with you for long periods in the cafes over iced coffee. Like much of southern Europe, Greece enjoys a ‘café culture’. Greek people are respectful, passionate about their football and are very hospitable.
Traditionally there has been very strong demand in Greece since teaching standards in the state sector varied so that school students attend extra private classes in many subjects, outside of regular school hours. However, the recent economic crisis has destablised the EFL sector. As a result, if the beauty and warmth of Greece beckons, you will most likely be helping people to improve their English to a sufficient enough standard to leave the country for English speaking universities or international jobs.
Tips for teaching English in Greece:
* choose the 150-hour TESOL Premier Plus for Europe
* add a 30-hour Business TESOL as this specialism is still very much in demand
* consider the 20-hour Teaching English Online course so you are not dependent on the local market, as many of our Global English TESOL graduates do this successfully
