Italy is a popular destination for English teachers. Careerwise, Italy has the strongest English-teaching market in Western Europe, offering abundant opportunities, particularly for EU nationals. Then, of course, there’s the art, architecture and operas for which Italy is famous throughout the world. The country is blessed with a rich culture, full of tradition. It is also the home to some of the world’s most famous designers and artists. Italian people are united in their passion for great food and wine; so much so, that even lunch can result in a four course meal. … Read More
As you might expect, Italy can be an expensive place to live. Taxes are quite high – you will be liable for income tax, housing tax, social security and various indirect taxes on almost all purchases.
It is more expensive to live in the larger cities than the rural areas in southern Italy but, of course, there are also far more jobs. Salaries for EFL teachers are generally in the region of €650-1,300 (US$960-1,918) per month, depending on qualifications, experience and your teaching schedule. On average, if you work 25 hours a week, you can expect about €800 (US$1,181) per month. … Read More
