Program Description

Language Link, Russia is looking for young and creative professionals to teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in our language centres throughout the Russian Federation. All teachers work roughly 30 academic hours (45 minutes = 1 academic hour) per week. They also are occasionally asked to administer Cambridge English Exams as well as conduct student level testing. Teachers are allocated their own classes and teach students of all ages and levels, from beginner to advanced and young learners to adults. Teaching English through Language Link provides teachers opportunities to develop teaching skills, and experience a full range of EFL teaching possibilities and settings. 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.
