Teaching English in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is one among the pre-eminent best in-class European destinations for TEFL teachers; this nation has seen a gigantic expansion sought after for local English teachers lately. You can secure teaching jobs during summer and year round in places like Varna and Sofia.

English teachers certified in TEFL/TESOL courses in Bulgaria ordinarily get recruited throughout the entire year; however, September and January are perhaps the greatest months. In Bulgaria, schools need you to work around 20-25 hours each week which is also part of the work protocol. What's more, you can hope to make around 650 - 950 USD each month. While teaching English in Bulgaria, you can explore its territory, people, and culture, see local sights and taste the local cuisine, and make contacts for a lifetime.
