I am interested to know if teachers have any experience (good and bad) in MEL schools in Germany? I notice they have been advertising teaching positions in some of the big cities in Germany. Any feedback welcome.

They want people (a) with a lot of Business English experience and (b) who are preferably already in Germany. If one does not satisfy either or both of these, I would advise against interviewing with them. I satisfy (a) but not (b). I passed my interview with the UK recruitment manager* and then had a phone interview with a DOS. I thought the interview went superbly well, but the job(s) went to people who were not merely already in-country but also living in the city in which I was applying to work in.

As a general rule, one should avoid applying for jobs in Europe when based in the UK. It's overwhelmingly likely that there will be a pool of candidates right on their doorstep.

However, to be fair, I was given a good impression of Linguarama. They do tailor-made business/ESP courses, which is nice work if you can get it.

Good luck!

*this interview took place in a hotel lobby, and was rather uncomfortable because total strangers were listening.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like they are fairly professional to some language school outfits I have come across.
