Learning English is big business in Greece. It is common for parents to send their children to Private language schools (Frontiseras) to supplement the English language tuition they receive in the State schools. Most private language schools are Greek-owned and run and, despite being legally obliged to employ a majority of Greek teachers, schools are now taking on more and more native English speakers. There are lots of opportunities for foreigners to work in schools. You will definitely need a University degree and an internationally-recognized TESOL certificate. Knowledge of Greek is also useful – though not essential.
The average wage for a teacher who works in Greece is €1000,00 a month you are able to live a comfortable lifestyle, but that depends on every individual’s expectations. The relaxed speed of life at times can be rejuvenating, depending on your age and ambitions.
