Germany is a country filled with fascinating culture, immense history and a thriving need for English teachers. The dramatic landscapes of Germany that range from tranquil seacoast to colossal mountains, from wind-mill strewn plains to lush forestry will leave you enthralled. Along with a diverse landscape, Germany also boasts some of Europe’s most beautiful architecture. Fairy tale castles, herculean towers, majestic basilicas and cobblestone streets are just some of the sights Germany offers. Surrounded in such an atmosphere, teaching in Germany is a rewarding and enriching experience.

Germany plays an important role in Europe. It is the largest economy and most populous nation of the continent. With the development of this country, English is more and more important. Native speakers are in big demand in Germany. As Germany is a member of the EU, non–EU citizens need to apply for a work permit prior to arrival.

Having an intrinsic drive for knowledge and education along with many having international business connections, attributes to the need for English teachers in this diverse country. The two primary areas of English that are taught in Germany are General English or Business English, with the majority of students being adults. Many businesses require some of their employees to reach an advanced level of English speaking to maintain communication with their international clients, which translates to highly motivated students.
