Teaching English in Germany: At a Glance


Enjoy 'the land of poets and thinkers' as you discover one of Europe's most exciting countries. From the hustle of Berlin to the historic harbour of Bremerhaven, there is something for everyone to discover. Considered one of the most tolerant and well regarded countries in the world, Germany's rich cultural history and technological advances are sure to impress the most seasoned of travellers.


Germany is popular with tourists eager to partake in its annual harvest festival, Oktoberfest, but there's more to Germany than beer and sausages. The Black Forest in the country's southwest evokes the fairy tales from your youth, and there are a number of famous museums, galleries and music venues to suit every taste. If art isn't your speed, try the world-famous Autobahn, or take in a European football game.

Germany's advanced rail and bus network means exploring the entire country is easy for travelers. Its central location in Europe means destinations such as Austria, France, Denmark, Poland and the Czech Republic are literally next door, and further exploration is easy and affordable.

With the rest of Europe only a quick train ride away and the ability to save money, Germany is an ideal destination for any ESL teacher with a touch of wanderlust.
