Teach English in Poland
START DATE: September 2013
We are currently recruiting for positions starting in September 2013 and finishing on June 30th 2014. Both EU as well as non-EU citizens are welcome to apply.
Why teach abroad?
Teaching abroad is a unique way to travel and make money at the same time. And not travelling in the shallow, tour group, “see-it-all-as-quickly-as-possible” sort of way. Travelling in the true sense of the word: living in a completely different country, immersing yourself in a new culture and language and building lasting friendships with inhabitants of that country.
Why choose Poland?
Strategically located in the heart of Central Europe, Poland is a country of rich history, fascinating culture and untouched natural beauty. It has undergone rapid change in the last two decades, and is now enjoying the beginning of a new era as a member of the European Union. It is an exciting time to be here and experience first-hand Poland’s future unfolding. Polish hospitality is world-renowned – the Poles are as friendly as they are proud: always more than happy to show off their country to foreigners. And rightly proud they are – there’s much to see and do.
Why choose Intensity?
Our school is located in the city of Rybnik, in the Silesian province of southern Poland. Our location serves as the perfect hub from which you can base your travels. Famous capital cities such as Warsaw, Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava are easily accessible and can be reached within about 4-5 hours. If you’re interested in skiing or hiking, the ski resorts in the Beskidy mountains are only an hour away! And of course Krakow, Poland’s cultural capital, can be reached in about an hour and a half. Public transport in Poland is reliable and relatively inexpensive.
Intensity is one of only a handful of schools in Poland owned and operated by native speakers of English and employing only native speakers of English. This means that there is a unique relationship between the management of the school and its teachers of openness, respect and complete understanding – we are able to empathize with our teachers. Our policy of “happy teachers produce excellent lessons” is one that has made our school a success. We teach mainly adult students who need English for their professional and personal use. The relaxed and lively classroom atmosphere that we create is highly appreciated by our students and encourages communication.
Every year, we assemble the best possible team of teachers, and ensure that our students are exposed to a diverse range of talents and accents, whether they may be American, British, Canadian, Australian or South African. Our team is always well-balanced, with each teacher bringing his or her own unique character to the mix.
