We are looking for young and creative professionals to teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in our language centres throughout the Russian Federation. The Teacher-Intern programme is designed for those who do not have an officially recognized TEFL certificate. This is a great opportunity for those who would like international work experience, who would like to pursue a career in teaching or international education, or for those who have an interest in living in Russia. Teachers are allocated their own classes and teach students of all ages and levels, from beginner to advanced and young learners to adults. All teachers work roughly 30 academic hours (45 minutes = 1 academic hour) per week. They are also occasionally asked to administer Cambridge English Exams as well as conduct student level testing. Teaching English as a Teacher-Intern through Language Link provides new teachers opportunities to develop teaching skills, attain professional certification and experience a full range of EFL teaching possibilities and settings.
HighlightsThis is a great opportunity for first-time teachers to learn how to become official EFL teachers. Teachers also earn an official TEFL certificate upon completion of the program. Additionally, for those who are interested in learning Russian language or continue their studies of Russian, this position can help you get to Russia, obtain a work visa and the legal right to work in Russia as well as spend many hours at a language school speaking both Russian and English. For those who would like to take Russian lessons, Interns are offered an employee discount on all Russian language lessons.
