How much experience do you have? That will restrict your options. The British Council, for example, is recruiting teachers to work in Athens, but candidates need to have at least two years post-certificate teaching experience.

Do your friends in Corfu know the island well? If so, ask them to compile a list of the local language schools. Print a couple of dozen copies of your CV, pack a pair of good shoes and get ready to go knocking on doors. When you visit a school, ask to speak to the director of studies. Find out about the terms and conditions, including accommodation and travel expenses, if any.

As a precaution, take enough money to cover your living expenses for three months.

Your friends are right about cold calling; a visit in person is much more effective than an email from abroad.

Hi Amanda,

I know it's a bit late but here's a list of english language schools in Corfu which you should contact if you haven't already.

http://www.xo.gr/dir-az/F/Frontistiria-Xenon-Glosson/Kerkyra%20(Chora)/

There is also this classified ad which asks for a native english teacher, although it's in Greek. Smile

I suppose you've already found something by now because there's always a need for native English teachers in Greece. Smile

The first one is just a list of language schools. Call them, someone might need you. The second one says:

A frontistirio (private English language school) is looking for an English teacher.
A frontistirio in the center of the city wants to hire a native English teacher or a university degree holder. You must have excellent use of oral English. Razz
Send your CV and photo at info@english.edu.gr For more information call every day 8:00-20:00 at 2661028600.
Τelephone number: 2661028600

So I suppose you are good for the job. Go for it. Smile

What is the news ? Are things as desperate in Hellas as we suspect ?
