Teaching English in Russia
"The mainstream academic institutes and international language chains continue to recruit native speaker teachers despite an ever-increasing availability of trained Russian teachers of English. Most language schools are sounding more upbeat in their appraisal of the future than they were a few years ago when Russia was experiencing an economic crisis, and once again they are looking to employ expat teachers. The growing and prosperous middle class in Moscow, St Petersburg and other cities still clamors to master English for business and also as a status symbol." —Susan Griffith in Jobs Teaching English in Central and Eastern Europe.
