Could be why most other posters have stopped writing. Seems like a capital idea.

So I paid all that money for nothing after they told me they could find me a job in Italy??

They had all these testimonies of ppl that said they found work after completing their program...is it a total scam???


Really? I didn't find any of those. I found this:

"In some locations, we are able to guarantee employment locally after completing the course. In all of our course locations, we can and do provide you with professional and ongoing assistance in finding that crucial first TEFL teaching job. We have schools and offices all around the world, all of which you'll be welcome to visit or to contact for help, irrespective of where you originally took your TEFL course."

Where are the testimonials of people who said they'd found work in Italy? (And were they US citizens??)


Okay here is their website

Is there a reason for these ITA links? I thought it was Via Lingua you "paid."

I will not argue that point because I'm not in Germany and do not know whats going on there.
I was told German schools are only supposed to hire US citizens if they can't find another German person with the same or excelling skills.
That makes Germany quite a force to be reckoned with in my book.


This is only true for employed positions. The vast majority of ESL work in Germany is freelance, and it is ridiculously easy for Americans, Australians, Canadians and Kiwis to obtain a freelance visa, so long as they're not destitute. I've never heard of anyone being denied an ESL freelance visa who had the requisite funds, health insurance and job offers.

Granting citizenship is a pretty serious and risky business - the government becomes responsible for adding the new citizen to its pension roles, tax system, health care lists, and possibly to its database of potential military draftees. It's not a light undertaking, and 5 years isn't unreasonably slow.

I guess I am just naive... I imagined it would only take a few months. I've begun researching my lineage to see if I qualify as well. : fingers crossed :

Well, I've just learned something new here.
