Advice on teaching English in Lithuania?
posted by KMH to Work & Money (2 answers total)
I'm interested in the possiblility of teaching English in Lithuania (OK, my last AskMeFi question about Lithuanian for a while).
I have some experience of actually teaching English as a 2nd language to German students, but don't have an EFL qualification and I'm slowly but surely learning Lithuanian.
I'm wondering what are my chances of getting a good EFL qual, moving to Lithuania and teaching for a few years before finding a job teaching EFL at a university or college.
I've been recommended to aim for a "serious" EFL certificate that takes months rather than days before starting, and to upgrade at some point with a masters e.g. in linguistics later on (I have a first degree, though not in English or linguistics already).
Can anyone offer some more concrete, Lithuania-specific suggestions on how to procede, what the job market is like, which qualifications are prefered in Lithuania etc...? I have looked through EFL questions on Ask MeFi but Lithuania is not mentioned. I will add I'm considering it more as a career move than as an early career stage!
