Does anyone know of a school in Ukraine that is not specifically designed for Brits and does not require an interview in London?

Just go. Learn Russian or Ukrainian (Russian! Smile ), get a visa, sell everything you have, maybe a few internal organs, y'know.. but not your liver, you'll need that.
And hop on a plane to Kiev. What could be simpler?

Most Internation House schools will accept telephone interviews. Have you tried IH Kiev?

Yes...I applied to IH but I got some very cryptic responses and then the responses just ceased...It didn't seem like they wanted a teacher.

Hum-very strange.
It could simply be a case of lost e-mail-it happens a lot in the former Soviet Union, as far as I can tell.
If I were you, I'd e-mail them again, or even telephone them and find out what's going on.

Or your expectations of the level of efficiency might be a little too high.

Sometimes the Soviet Union seems like an e mail graveyard
And as for receiving snail mail-ugh!
Persevere!

DON'T TOUCH IH KIEV.

There's a steady stream of teachers who arrive in Kiev through Ih but rarely longer than is necessary to find another job.

Don't take my word for it, check out other forums.

There are two or three teachers from the States in Ukraine at London School of English. Admittedly, most of the rest are British but there you go.
