Hello everyone Smile

I'd be grateful if you could kindly let me know where I can get a list of language schools etc. to apply. I've tried looking online and on the job listing here, but there aren't many.

Thank you so much Smile

It's pretty rare to land a job at a language school in the Czech Republic from abroad. There are plenty of teachers around on the streets to interview in person, and most reputable schools don't need to take chances on someone sight-unseen.

Peak hiring time is now, for a couple of weeks. Assuming that you have a BA and a CELTA or equivalent, you'll probably find something if you come over asap.

If you are already here, then it can be a good idea to ask other teachers what good schools are hiring.

Thank you so much for your feedback, Spiral78.
Unfortunately I'm in Asia at the moment, so I'll have to make do with e-mail applications.
I've another question with regards to visa application- should I apply for Zivno now or wait for a job offer first?

Thanks again for your help Smile

Generally teachers enter the country as tourists, and usually you have 90 days to sort your work permit.

So, I suggest waiting til you get an offer - if you do.

You may want to check here for background on any school that offers you a contract sight-unseen; as noted before they tend to be either dodgy or located in unpopular rural areas.

I suggest that you travel to the Czech Republic and start knocking on doors. Small towns might be a better bet than Prague of the other cities.

If I were hiring for my school I would want to see who i was getting.
