Dear Forum Members,

I have been invited by a private university setting in Romania to teach in the area of English and intercultural communication in their summer program.

I was asked to propose a lecture list, payment scale and other requirements.

I have taught in the US at the university level, and I am looking at this as an adjunct teaching assignment. From that perspective, I can determine my financial needs. However, I'd like to know from the members here, who have experience in Romania and Europe, how should I approach this in terms of "my requirements"? In other words, what is the potential pay scale there for teaching a college level type of course, and would a university cover accommodations for the duration (e.g. a dorm room) and travel cost (airplane ticket to and from). Are these reasonable "requirements" to ask for?

In terms of acadmic background, I have more than one postgraduate degree, and likely to have finished by doctorate by summer. In addition, I have more than 10 years experience of teaching as adjunct lecturer at the university level.

I look forward to your comments.

Sincerely,

Ken

Hi,
I've never taught there, but am hoping to go this fall. I can tell you that the pay there is definetly no inspiring. Most college professors make a couple hundred USD a month.
However, it's pretty cheap to live there.
I doubt that they would cover the airfare, or the living expenses.
If you go to Romania, you should go for the experience, not the money.

I've always wanted to go there. It's in my genes, my mother is from there. Smile But, looks like I will have to wait.

Now is the time to BUY a place in Romania. For US$10,000 you can get something nice.

Work in the Mideast for a year and you can buy your bolthole and retirement home.

The same applies south of the Danube in Bulgaria.
