Teach English in Europe

Map of Europe

"As the European Union has expanded and reciprocal links between European nations have strengthened, the availability of employment opportunities for non-Europeans has declined. Yet thousands of Americans live and work in Europe, many of whom have arrived in the past year or two in search of a niche. The business of teaching English absorbs a considerable percentage of these temporary European residents.".—Susan Griffith in Teaching English In Europe.
