How to Teach English as a Foreign Language


English-language skills are becoming ever more desirable in Germany, and therefore, teachers of the language are needed! While non-native speakers do still teach English in many public schools, in private schools there is a distinct preference for native English speakers, which creates great opportunities for those interested in moving abroad to Germany.

And teaching English as a foreign language doesn't just mean teaching adults; from bilingual kindergartens and grade schools to camps and after-school tutoring, there are a variety of teaching environments to choose from. All of these options, however, can be a bit overwhelming! So below you'll find a video outlining some of the pros and cons of teaching English in Germany for each of the different teaching environments.
