TEFL Internship in Romania

Teach English and explore Romania whilst experiencing its fascinating culture.


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 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 170 Hour Ofqual Regulated Level 5 TEFL Course.

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’ll feel at home in no time.

How it works

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.

Getting there

All qualified applicants will fly into the designated airport (Bucharest, Brasov or Sibiu) where you’ll be picked up. If you fly to a nearby airport and travel by public transport to your placement location, you’ll have city center pick-up.

What do you need to organise?

  • International flights: You’ll need return flights (can be two one-way)
  • Police check: You’ll need a clean criminal record
  • Health check: You’ll need to provide a health statement
  • Budget: Spending money for living essentials etc
  • Travel insurance: It’s really important to sort yours before you travel! However, you’ll have access to an emergency doctor

Your teaching experience

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.

  • Brasov County
  • Sibiu County

Outside the classroom

Take advantage of the cultural inclusions in this TEFL internship by attending a whole host of fascinating and famous landmarks;

  • Dracula’s Castle
  • Rasnov Fortress
  • Sighisoara Citadel
  • ancient Dacians Fortress from Orastie
  • Hunizilor Castle
  • Dino Parc
  • Valea Cetatii Cave
  • The beautiful cities Sibiu and Brasov
  • The mountain resorts Patinis & Poiana Brasov.

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 over a kilometer in the center of Bucharest and is the perfect place for teachers to take a stroll.

With a well-known 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 €150 – €250 (€50 per week) plus fully inclusive accommodation and meals throughout the internship and organized day trips (worth upwards of €1,600), you are set to enjoy every moment of your time.
