Teaching English in Krakow. Is there still enough work?

Hi there!

I'm considering moving to Krakow around September 1st. With the current economic situation, is it possible to find enough work teaching English to support oneself?

I am a native speaker with a Master's degree in Second Language Acquisition, and a TEFL Certificate, but more importantly, I have 5 years experience teaching ESL/EFL (In Russia and in the USA)

Advice?

Krakow is flooded with natives. You'll be competing against backpackers who are willing to work for buttons - and while there's always well paying work out there, that work goes to people "in the know". The fact that you need a work permit also puts you at a massive disadvantage.

Exactly. Competition might be die-hard.

Even natives can be homeless one day. :):):)

BTW, do you know where they are sitting?

Of course, same place I used to meet my ex fiance everyday after work if we were meeting up for dinner out, though I suspect she only met me there cos empik was in front of it :)

If there is, you're not going to get anything from outside Poland.

You and ten million others want to teach in Krakow.
