I am obsessed with Macedonia.
It's official.
I read all I can on the place, devour literature on the place, visit website, have learnt some of the language, and even managed to get myself a Macedonian boyfriend Wink

My dream would be to go over there to teach English, but so far any TEFL work placements in Eastern Europe are pathetically, seemingly restricted to Poland.

Does anyone have any useful contacts/advice on finding teaching work in Eastern Europe and/or Macedonia?

Many thanks!

I have spent some time in tracking down specific schools and specific contacts. I have found contacts various schools and agencies to be very good at getting back to me, but at this point, I am still a year or more away from beginning any employment. The school year begins in September.


These both are private-tuition full-curriculum schools based on a US model.

Seemingly US-government Affiliated. Small.

******************************

These are strictly language schools. I know nothing personally about any of these schools, but maybe someone out there does.

QSI - Language schools in several Eastern European & other countries.

Apolo - a language-only private school.

If you are interested in continuing your education, you might investigate these entries into the university academic community. Don't know what summer programs might be available. Check with your own university about possible credit courses you might take while in Macedonia.

This will give you a TOTAL listing of all European programs of university study, listed by university. Takes a little time to load.

Nothing currently for Macedonia, but worth book-marking.

There will be more resources as I sort through my bookmarks and correspondence.

Cricket, that's brilliant, thank you!

Some schools I've found have been pretty rude/flippant about the whole thing, eg sometimes not even bothering to answer, but hopefully your links will bring up something good.

Thanks a million.
