Living in Europe

Teaching abroad in Europe can be a great opportunity to develop your teaching skills in an interesting and modern environment. International teachers flock to different destinations in Europe because of the world-class teaching opportunities and ease of travel. You could aim for one of the chic and cosmopolitan capitals such as Paris or Prague, or head for somewhere more relaxed on the Mediterranean coast of Italy or Spain. Eastern Europe has a more reasonable cost of living, while Western Europe is more developed and modern. High-speed rail, low-cost airlines and long-distance bus routes connect many major European cities so it's easy to take a short break in a neighbouring country.
