Im going to be most likely ending a position around October and am hoping to find a short term job that pays a little something enough to survive for 2-3 months. Anyone know of a school that would be open to this? I could work in Warsaw but would prefer a small school that is open minded less English mill and near the mountains somewhere (ideal situation) If anyone knows of any schools that pop to mind that would welcome a situation like this. Im not looking to make any money just survive a few months so to get a tax break for the year before heading home.

Most schools will turn up their nose at teachers who mention they just want a 2-3 month stint.

Angloville may well be your best bet. They do give you room and board. And it's 'an experience'.

IH Bielsko Biała advertises from time to time, but they usually want someone for 10 months. Relatively close to the mountains.

You could try Profi Lingua, they are present in different cities all over the country. Their salary is more or less what you want, just enough to survive. Empik offers similar rates. They are mills, their reputation varies depending on location, but you could get "umowa zlecenie" and then leave whenever it's good for you.
If mountains are your priority, check language schools in Zakopane and email them.


One more thing: the situation in Poland is pretty complicated right now, nobody knows if the public school teachers are going on strike or not. There are lots of problems thanks to the reform of education. September starts in a few days, and nobody knows what's going to happen, so it may be a pretty tough year for language teaching as students may have less time for private lessons.

They pay if you work for them in their office.

What they usually offer is not an office position.
