Job Summary

ISL Sprachschule - Karlsruhe/Pforzheim - Germany is looking for an English teacher to start in late December 2017. This is a full time contract Position teaching to adults and is open to non EU passport holders.

Details of Position

ISL Language School teaches primarily to Business Clients/Adults and small Group classes. 80% of the classes are in companies in the area.
Teaching method: Most classes have a course book but teachers are encouraged to tailor their own program to the students needs - i.e. no rigid program. Lots of materials for roles plays, grammar games, discussion topics etc. are available and teacher copy lots of extra material for the students.
A sound knowledge of English grammar is essential - teachers who cannot explain grammar in germany will have a hard time keeping their credibility with students. For those who don't have this we do organise training times with you before you go into classes.
Student levels: Most germans have had 3-4 years of english at school - so they usually have the basics. Typically they need work on fixing past simple, present simple, present perfect etc.. About 70% of the classes are at this level. The rest are beginners or more advanced students.


The teacher must fullfill the following:
Have a native speaker Level of English
Have a driving licence (we provide the car with stick shift)
Have the ability to explain english grammar
Have teaching experience (at least 1 year) in an adult Environment.

Salary and Benefits

Conditions: We offer a monthly salary of euro 2000 gross or net ca. euro 1350 for 33 hours (รก 45 mins) per week of teaching. As this is a full time position you are fully medically insured with pension contributions as per the german system. Please note - that an extra ca. 40% (paid by the school) goes towards those benefits - i.e. medical, pension, unemployment insurance etc... so that the gross pay is considerably higher than the net salary. 25 days of paid holidays per year (2 weeks of which are to be taken at christmas-only time when the schools close in the year) plus all the usual paid public holidays (about 11 per year in germany). The position is initially for a two year period. Most of the teachers with us have stayed on for much longer the average being ca. 4 years with us.
Cost of living in Germany: the schools are not in expensive areas of Germany. A teacher typically has the following costs per month:
1. Housing - Euro 450 - 500 per month - some teachers have costs under this - this will get you an apartment of ca. 40 - 50 m2.
2. Food & Basics: Euro 300 per month - this is on the very high side.
Which leaves a teacher with at least Euro 400 per month for other spending needs - if any. We set up initial accommodation.
