    Teaching English in Russia

    Post  StreetRanger on Mon Oct 26, 2015 1:50 am

    Hello Everyone!

    I have been reading the forums for awhile, and I have seen that there are people from all over the world here. I have read many interesting things I didn't know, and didn't see this topic discussed and figured I would start one. There are many websites on the internet that offer teaching certificates that will allow for native English speakers to teach English in foreign countries. I already have a bachelor of science, and am working on my masters, but would like to add a foreign language skill. I was considering taking a one year break to teach in either Moscow, or St. Petersburg, and learn Russian while teaching English to Russian speakers.

    Does anyone here have any experience with programs like this?

    Best,
    Jon

    I kniw a guy who taught english in St.pete back in the 90's and really enjoyed it. It may be harder now but he got through by simply applying at various schools.

    Dunno how it works now though.

    Εmployment for foreign citizens in Russia

    Post  StreetRanger on Mon Oct 26, 2015 8:25 am

    I am from the USA, so I doubt it would be easy, but I have a degree in business, and will soon have a masters in human resource development. I would like to live in Russia for a year or so, maybe longer, and want to learn to speak Russian. I am willing to learn Russian while finishing my masters to become a better candidate. There is a ton of information on the internet on this subject, but most of it is negative because of the sanctions Russia is under and the state of their economy. Any advice is appreciated, and I am hoping someone has actually done this. I am to old to join the Russian Army (44), so that can't be an option.

    Thanks in Advance for opinions and options.

    Best Regards.
    Jon

    First of all i think you need to get a hold of the Russian Consulate either in Seattle or DC, depending on where you reside, find everything you can about long extending visa's and all, since you are not going to go on a vacation, get Rosetta Stone, i know sound bad right??? But get it anyway, it does work, guaranteed, also start looking for international business associated companies back home depending on your field of expertise and such, that is all for now.

    You will get details here

    I am from Belarus but have lived and worked in Moscow but that is primarily because I am Russian from my Mom's side. I have seen several people from the US work in Russia a vast majority of them are hired by US companies that have offices/operations in Russia.

    One more thing. Just like it is imperative to know English in the US it is equally imperative to learn Russian if you want to get a job in Russia.

    its best to do at least a TEFL course first(google TEFL) then contact schools as some schools are happy to take someone with a TEFL certificte and some aren't, the ones that do don't normally advertise abroad, this how my friend did it. Some will also offer a accommodation as part of the package, i was offered a job while teaching english while i was in Tajikistan, but wasn't ready to move abroad, next year however i will be looking to move abroad, either Africa or central Asia, i was in North Korea for 10 days in August and really enjoyed it just a shame i can't go there to teach english.

    Goggle CELTA, it is an internationally recognized English teaching certification.
