TEFL teaching in Europe is one way of staying in Europe with a regular income. Salaries vary from country to country for the same working hours. Here is a quick guide to what you can earn in certain countries.
Usually offers a 24 hour contract – this is very common and you will work Monday to Thursdays afternoon and evenings until 9-10pm. You will start teaching children for 3-4 hours then teach adult group classes. (Most schools will give you a 5 minute break between lessons). Salaries vary from the south to the north of Spain, the north paying more due to living costs. You will be paid from €800,00 in the south to €1200,00 in the north of Spain for a 20-24 hour contract after tax. Some schools may ask you to do more hours for the same salary so watch out for this new TEFL teacher.

It is an expensive country to live in and salaries can be the same as Spain. Again if you live and work in the South you will be paid less than in the north of Italy. A 25 hour TEFL teaching contract can start from €900,00 after tax up to €1100,00 in the North of Italy.
TEFL teachers working in the EU here are some factors.
Most academies in Europe can only hire EU nationals unless they state in their advert that they can sponsor other nationalities, this can be costly for a academy so it is rare to see in a TEFL job advert.
Some TEFL teaching schools and academies may pay you in cash if you are not from the EU. But if this happens it means you are not allowed health insurance so you will have to pay for that yourself and you will also be working illegally. When you choose your best TEFL course in Europe the school will give you details about what to look out or in TEFL work contracts. In the EU and the school can be fined thousands if they get caught, but having said that a lot of ESL academies/ ESL schools do this to EU nationals anyway! It’s part of their culture they say.
