A country with an unstable and tumultuous past, the Poland of today is a safe, historic, culture rich destination. Ever since joining the EU in 2004, demand for EFL teachers has soared in this bustling country. While the majority of jobs are in denser urban areas, there are opportunities available in rural landscapes as well. There are plenty of options including in-company, private language schools, public primary and secondary schools, and intensive language camps. Private language schools tend to pay highest, while public schools offer the opportunity to get away from cities. Recruitment happens year round in private schools, with starts for public schools being typically in September and January. The average salary for an EFL instructor in Poland is between $1000 and $1900US.
