If you are a TEFL teacher heading to Poland then you will find a ready made TEFL industry waiting for you and it is a great place for new EFL teachers.
In common with many of the Eastern European countries, demand for English is expected to rebound quickly one the pandemic is over. We would expect teaching positions to start to be advertised more frequently as we move on and you will find the best place to look is www.tefl.com. Alongside the Czech Republic, some of the best living conditions in Eastern Europe can be found in Poland, although this is not a region for those that are purely financially motivated.
The government has played a big role in shaping a more professional approach to the teaching of English and well-qualified locals meet much of the demand. Global English also trains a number of excellent English speaking Polish nationals, who are working successfully in Poland and also teaching English online. However, there is still a strong demand for native speakers.
People are warm, welcoming and highly motivated to learn English. One thing is for certain here – you’ll be made very welcome and it is often thought of as being an ideal first stop on your TESOL career.
