Teaching English in Belarus

- Belarus

The following comments are from teachers who have worked, or are currently working, in Belarus. If you are a teacher and have some advice about Belarus, please share here.

I was a Fulbright Lecturer for seven months in Minsk, Belarus. I have never had students/teachers who were so respectful, so eager to learn English. Sometimes I would present to a group of a hundred or more, and I wouldn't hear a single cell phone ring, or a teenager texting. If you have a chance to teach in Belarus (and don't need much money), take it. The people are wonderful. It's much safer than Russia or Ukraine. The weather can be a downer, and the political/bureaucratic side can be mysterious. My program was terminated mid-year due to squabbling between the U.S. and Belarusian governments. Some songs in English recorded by young Belarusian kids are available on my teaching site English Teachers Everywhere (www.etseverywhere.com)
