    Hi there Teacher Sergio.

    What you need to be aware of is that given 1 teaching position and 2 applicants; a native English speaker, and non-native English speaker, the native English speaker will most likely land the job.

    However, saying that, many non-native speakers are far better teachers of English as they have had to learn the mechanics of studying a second language and, without trying to generalize too much, non-native English speakers tend to take their work more diligently.

    I would guess that teaching in Central and Eastern Europe would be your best starting point.

    Feel free to let me know how it goes and maybe I can provide you with more concrete info once you have narrowed your search down to the 1 country.

    Tefl jobs in the Balkans

    Hi Forum,

    I ‘m taking a holiday in the Balkans for a month or two.
    I’m an experienced TEFL teacher and have taught for many years in S Asia.
    Does anyone know anything about the TEFL market there?

    I never see any jobs advertised!
