Living as a TEFL teacher in Cyprus is laid back. The people are really friendly and will help you in any way they can. In the summer time the weather is really hot, and most public schools close. In the winter it is mild.
The school year is Sep to June. Most people who are in the tourist trade can speak a little English. It is best to bring your own materials from home for TEFL teaching in Cyprus, the schools tend to only use books from their local book shop.
TEFL Teaching for children in Cyprus is big business now as they want to get their little ones ready for state school – they start learning English around 7 years old. English is taught in all public schools.
One of the benefits of being a Mediterranean island is plentiful sunshine throughout the year, and Cyprus is no exception. In fact, it epitomizes the ideal weather of the region with sunshine and fine temperatures almost every day. Extremes of temperatures are rare, meaning it has something to offer every month of the year, whether it’s swimming (as late as November) or enjoying cultural sites and festivals (all year long). While seasonal fluctuations are not drastic, they are different. Cyprus is a free and easy place, where life revolves around small cafes and bars; and of course the family. The work ethic is non-existent. After an hour’s work they need an hour’s break to recompose themselves! For sun, sand and rest it is ideal. Because Cyprus lives on tourism there is a wide diversity of people and almost anyone is easily accepted. Other than tourism and small shops, it has very little industry.
Be prepared for a very slow pace and people who are not interested in hustle and work. It is a great place to relax.
