Hi, I am currently in Belgium trying to find my first teaching job. I am not an EU citizen, which obviously makes things difficuly. I am wondering if anyone is aware of a country here in western Europe where a person can obtain a student visa (in the country, or in a neighboring country) to take a course studying the local lanaguage? Perferably, a visa that would also allow for at least part-time employment teaching English would be ideal, but I guess one might be able to survive just giving private lessons under the table as well...... thanks

Spain. Check that forum where there has been discussion about doing this. I've learned about two TEFL providers (TtMadrid and EBC International) that offer a combo program of TEFL course, Spanish language/culture, student VISA and job search assistance.

The UK allows you to work if you are enrolled on a full-time course (Tier 4 student visa i think). (20 hours a week, but changing to 10 soon i think).
