TEFL Jobs in Italy
There are lots of opportunities to teach English in Italy, with pretty much every town and city having a well-developed TEFL jobs market. The Italian schools system is widely regarded to offer a below standard level of English language education, so Italians who want to learn usually opt for private tuition. The AISLI (Associazione Italiana Scuole di Lingue) is perhaps the most respected provider of English training and has a number of accredited schools across the country. Their employment criteria are rather strict and they expect top level TEFL certification. There are a number smaller independent language institutes operating across the country who offer TEFL jobs to less qualified teachers.
Wages and Cost of Living
Depending on your qualifications and your experience you can earn anything from €800 and €1,500 (US$1,000 to US$2,000) a month by teaching English in Italy. Private tuition can earn you between €10 and €35 (US$13.50 to US$45) an hour. The cost of living varies greatly from North to South, with the South being significantly more affordable than the North.
