Teaching English in Europe – Part IV – An Overview
By Daniel Cariello
BA Hons English Literature graduate
Europe is packed with an extraordinary wealth of sights. Taking part in a TEFL Europe course can provide you with the opportunity to meet interesting people, experience the incredible nightlife and appreciate the rich history and culture offered throughout the continent. So far in this series I have mainly covered France, Spain, Italy and Western Europe. But don’t think that this is the extent of the magnificent countries that Europe has to offer the keen traveller. Perhaps you would be interested in visiting the Scandinavian countries famous for fantastic landscapes, a great choice for any keen skiers. Alternatively, you might want to consider Belgium, a country with an amazing history, especially in cities like Ypres, and obviously a good choice for any choc-o-holics.
Europe leads the world in fashion, art, music, architecture and culture in general. For evidence just look at the all-encompassing streets of London and Berlin. In addition to this, impressive contemporary art can be found in practically any country in Europe. At the moment, tourism is flourishing in the Baltic countries such as Estonia and Latvia. This could be a great option for anybody looking to do a TEFL course somewhere that’s a little out of the ordinary.
European hotels are some of the best the world has to offer and most European countries pride themselves on being able to offer fantastic long-term accommodation as well. Moreover, travel between European countries is affordable and efficient with incredible modern forms of transportation including the European InterRail system.
Europe is a continent with a fantastic heritage and guarantees fun and adventure for any keen traveller looking to get involved with a TEFL course. If you are passionate about art, food, film or music, then accept no substitute as Europe can cater to all your needs.
