Teaching English in Austria

Austria's magnificence is no doubt moving. Regardless of where you go, you will undoubtedly be engrossed in the Austrian culture-and that is something worth being grateful for. English teachers in Austria, by and large, look for some kind of employment towards the beginning of September or October, and afterwards again in January. A large portion of the school contracts end in late June. Teachers who are intrigued to teach in summer can apply for summer English language camps. In case you're a UK, European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) resident, you won’t need a work license or visa to enter the country or search for teaching opportunities.

A certification in EFL/ESL courses in Austria is necessary to teach English. Global schools prefer their ESL teachers to have a university degree in Education. The normal pay package goes from 1800 USD - 2500 USD each month. While these numbers may appear low to a few, Austria is truly reasonable and ESL teachers can live comfortably on their wages.
