While studying in Katowice, places of interest close by are Krakow and Warsaw.

A Dream City
Warsaw is itself a dream city: beautiful parks everywhere like the Lazienki Park with peacocks and pheasants wandering around, the Saxon Garden, with more than 100 species of trees, and the spacious Krasinski Palace Garden with its imposing statue of King John III Sobieski, who saved Europe from a Turkish invasion in 1683.
Warsaw has world-class opera and ballet companies, the National Philharmonic Orchestra, four major universities and 62 colleges, more than 30 theatres, and hundreds of museums.

Krakow
If Warsaw attracts the business travelers, Krakow, Poland’ ancient capital, attracts the tourists — about ten million a year.
Nearly all of them come to visit the Wawel Royal Castle, which dates back to the 13th Century, and houses the Czartoryski Museum, home to Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece ‘Lady with an Ermine.’

Our tefl Krakow institute

Poland has a really rich history, so you will see unique monuments everywhere, no matter if it’s a big city, small town or a village. Churches, castles (like Lancut castle ), tenements are some examples of the amazing architecture you can see in Poland. No matter where you go, every place in Poland will have something interesting to offer. You will be surprised how full of contrast this country is. Buildings in mountains are really high with pointed roofs, old townhouses (like those in Krakow) are colourful and compact. You could literally spend the whole day finding different building ornaments in cities like Gdansk.

Traveling in Poland is cheap. Compared to famous European tourist destinations like Paris or London, the Polish prices are ridiculously low. You will pay half the price for food, accommodation or transportation. Polish food is literally the best in Europe. And it’s not only about the taste but also about the ingredients. The quality of Polish food is really high, basically everything you can find in a grocery store could be qualified as organic in countries like the US. Dishes in Poland (and some other countries of Eastern Europe) can’t be compared to anything else. They are filling but healthy.

Over the years, Poles have made astounding contributions to life on this planet. Did you know that Max Factor, the famous make-up artist was a native Pole? Or that we know that the sun is the centre of the Universe because of Kopernik, scientist born in Poland?

Did you know that people can diagnose and cure cancer because of the first woman- scientist, Marie Sklodowska- Curie, who invented radioactivity? Or that thousands of people don’t die because of this Polish invention, the bulletproof vest? Do you like Häagen-Daaz ice cream? Well, it is also a Polish invention.

The list could go on and on, some other examples of Polish inventions are the hologram, color photography, the kerosene lamp, mine detectors, the helicopter, the car wiper and the Lunar Roving Vehicle (used in the famous Apollo mission).

WORK IN Krakow AS A TEFL

A TEFL job in Poland as a native or non-native certified English teacher is an excellent opportunity. It is a country with a tremendous demand for English language learning. Poland has for many years been the go-to country for EFL institutes and today it presents great opportunity for English teachers to find work.

Finding a Job
Just like you would expect anywhere in the world, finding a job can be difficult if you don’t know where to look. We as iTTi Krakow will do our best to assist any of our graduates in finding the job that suits them. Poland has large EFL institute chains. Such schools are popular places to work as TEFL instructors. Private lessons are also a promising TEFL career, and the average rate can be anywhere from $10 – $25 an hour. Upon successful completion of your TEFL certification program with our institute, we will stay by your side until you land a job.

Classroom & Work Culture
Polish students are very dedicated to their studies and you will find that they eagerly participate in the lessons. They are well behaved and respond well to positive feedback. They are seen to be high achievers and will often do more than the teacher requires in order to master the language they are learning.

When and Where to Look for Jobs
The most popular places to find jobs are in cities such as Warsaw, Krakow and Gdansk. However there are countless opportunities in the smaller towns where people are beginning to desire to learn English.

English jobs in Poland are available all year round, although the winter Christmas break is the most difficult time since everything is closed. You will need to have a work permit from your company in order to enter the country. Teachers from the EU have no need of visas, but if you are coming from outside the EU, it is a little more difficult.

Required Qualifications
Teachers interested in working in Poland at a small, private language institute may only need a TEFL certificate. To obtain a work visa, a higher salary and all kinds of benefits at a more prestigious school or university requires at least a TEFL certificate, a BA and some previous teaching experience.

Salary & Cost of Living
A foreign teacher can expect to earn anywhere from $600 to $2,000 a month, depending on your qualifications and location. Larger school chains offer to pay for housing and airline tickets depending on the location you apply to and your contract with them. If housing isn’t included, just ask the school faculty whom you are applying with; everyone is friendly and happy to help make you feel comfortable in your new home. The working week in Poland is Monday to Friday, but very often you could be asked to teach on Saturday as well.
