Most first-time visitors to Greece come with specific ideas in mind however, the country offers so much more than the typical tourist images. Peak tourist season is July through August; when traveling to find work, try to avoid these months. Like many European nations, teaching ESL in Greece can be hard for teachers without EU citizenship.

The combination of Oxford Seminars' internationally recognized TESOL/TESL/TEFL Certification and the  Graduate Placement Service included with the course makes teaching English abroad a reality.  Learn more about teaching English in Greece and other opportunities teaching English abroad by calling 1-800-779-1779, or by attending an upcoming free Information Session in your area.
