Romania has been the home of influential artists, musicians, inventors and sportspeople for centuries. Best known for inspiring world-renowned characters such as Dracula, it has a rich and diverse culture, a mix of a cosmopolitan class and charming countryside.
As a member of the EU, one of fastest growing tourism destinations and the largest Southeastern European country Romania also allows for easy, cheap travel throughout Europe. The cost of living in Romania is low compared to its Western neighbors, and the people are warm, polite and welcoming.
Before you arrive you’ll be fully prepared and confident to teach having completed the 240 hour TEFL Expert Course. This training includes specialist modules in teaching young learners as well as exam English which will be vital on this internship.
Immerse yourself fully in Romanian culture and explore iconic landmarks on fully organized trips. Beginning with your arrival orientation about living and working in Romania you you’ll feel at home in no time.
Before you go, you’ll have an application form to fill out, a video chat, submit all your documents and then you’ll be on your way to Romania.
All qualified applicants will fly into the designated airport (Bacau or Sibiu) where you’ll be picked up.
Your role as an energetic camp teacher will combine teaching through games, activities, fun excursions, debates, drama as well as music and any other creative techniques you devise.
You can typically expect to teach up to 15 contact hours per week, plus 15 hours of sports, drama and craft activities for more recreational learning. Some preparation time will be needed to lesson or activity plan.
Remember this won’t be all classroom-based so you will need to add some creativity in your planned activities. Your goal as an English teacher on this internship will be focused on conversational English practice.
There are two summer camp locations to choose from within the historical Transylvania region, in central Romania.
Take advantage of the cultural inclusions in this TEFL internship by attending a whole host of fascinating and famous landmarks including Dracula’s Castle, Rasnov Fortress and Saint Ana Lake.
Camp co-ordinators love to help teachers to fully experience local culture and see the sights. You can expect to get the best tourist advice and know the hidden gems of your area in a flash.
Living with fellow teachers you’ll have a group of new friends to share this trip with and make lifelong memories.
Plan on exploring Romania after your camp? Lake Cișmigiu stretches almost over a kilometre in the center of Bucharest and is the perfect place for teachers to take a stroll. With a well-know club scene you can turn things up a notch and dance the night away in popular venues in the ‘Old City’.
Lesser known for its coastline, Romania’s beaches line the southeast corner of the country and places to visit include Eforie and Costineşti. TEFL teachers taking a beach holiday on the Black Sea shores after their teaching practice won’t regret it.
With pocket money of €200 plus fully inclusive accommodation and meals throughout the internship and organized day trips, you are pretty much set to enjoy your time.
