Teaching English in Romania: At a Glance

Pastoral villages, medieval castles, herds of sheep grazing the green foothills of the Carpathian Mountains: much of Romania feels like a country untouched by modernity. But Romania is also known for its cities, namely Bucharest and, of course, the famous region of Transylvannia.

Since its induction into the European Union, Romania has been enjoying some of its highest living standards since Communism, making it an attractive ESL teaching destination. Famous for being a country of contrasts (as well as the home of Dracula), history and modernism collide in every major city; the capital of Bucharest is no exception.

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 Romania and other opportunities teaching English abroad by calling 1-800-779-1779, or by attending an upcoming free Information Session in your area.
