With us, not only can you work full-time as a language teacher, but we also offer part-time career opportunities for students. Our timetables can be combined with your lecture schedule. You can even finance part or all of your studies. As the duration of our courses is usually only 12 weeks, this facilitates your planning. If you would like to work part-time, evening courses are ideal because the intensive courses are more suitable for full-time work.

Open Positions

Regardless of the languages you speak, you should definitely consider applying. Although many clients ask for English, French, German or any other European language, we also have a constant need for teachers in less common languages. There are more and more people who deliberately want to learn a language that not everyone speaks. Don’t hesitate to contact us – our staff will be happy to tell you which languages are in demand.


The language for which you are applying should preferably be your mother tongue so that you are a role model for perfect pronunciation for your students. Furthermore, you should like to interact with people, because friendly and likeable teachers are important for making lessons enjoyable and comfortable. In addition to the regular lessons, many of our teachers organise other activities for our clients and a sociable personality is required. It is also important to us that you teach the students not only the language but also the culture of the country where the language is spoken. If you meet these expectations and our offer appeals to you, apply now! We look forward to hearing from you.
