I thought a list of language schools in Romania might be useful to job seekers:

Bridge Language House
http://www.blsh.ro/en/index.htm
Based in Cluj, a nice academic city in Transylvania.

Prosper-ASE Language centre, Bucharest
http://www.prosper.ro/
Another language centre with some connection to the BC.

B.Smart Language centre, Bucharest
http://www.cursuri-bsmart.ro/
Another smallish language centre.

Ariel Centre, Bucharest
http://www.centrulariel.ro/
Another one...

Echo Language School, Bucharest
http://www.theecho.ro/index_en.php
Had some contact with them. The say they have native speakers but doubt they employ them full time.

Fides Language Centre, Bucharest
http://www.fidescentre.ro/index.html
I know they run open courses and do some in-house stuff.

Avalon, Bucharest
http://www.avalon.ro/index.php?section=staticpage&action=43
Know nothing about them.

Study London, Bucharest
http://www.studylondon.ro/en/
Mostly in-house jobs, pay by the hour (around 10 euro probably).

International House, Bucharest and Brasov
http://www.ih.ro/
Employ mostly local staff and a couple of native speakers. I've heard the salary is very low.

British Council
http://www.britishcouncil.org/romania.htm
Same old, same old.

Eurocor
http://www.eurocor.ro/cat-Engleza-3.htm
Offer all kinds of classes. No idea if they would be interested in native English speaking trainers.

American International School
http://www.aisb.ro/
Good post, but I imagine competition is high.

Mark Twain School, Bucharest
http://marktwainschool.ro/english/
I've heard they pay ok too.

British School
http://www.ibsb.ro/
Hire natives and pay about 1500 Euro.

Cambridge School
http://www.lis.ro/
Run and mostly aimed at the Turkish and Middle Eastern community, apparently. Last I heard were paying about 900 Euro for a couple of classes a day.


I'll add more if I find them.
Cheers,
Mike

Wow, that's great. HOw much do they pay more or less? Do they usually get visas?

Shocked No idea!

The language centres are probably not going to offer a salary packet and accommodation. They mostly use local teachers and pay poor salaries. You might be able to get some freelance work from them, billed hourly, especially if they get requests from firms for some in-house courses with a native speaker. Echo contacted me once to see if I could do a contract for them.

If you want a packet job, the international schools are the best option. From what I've heard from various sources they pay around 1500 Euro or so a month and sometimes sort out accommodation. All the people I've known working at these places were EU citizens so the visa wasn't an issue. I'm sure the American schools prefer US citizens and will lend a hand with the visa though.

Hi Mike - that's awesome. After 18 years of living in the US, I'd like to make my way back home. It's not easy though... I don't know how you got there, but I wanted to thank you for posting these links.

Dracotei - You're welcome. Getting here was easy, I took the train Smile When I first got here I worked for a UK outfit and as I had a contract I was able to get a residence permit for two years. By the time that ran out Romania was about to entry the EU so I no longer needed a permit (being a UK citizen).

Cheers,
Mike
