Full-time English Teacher Needed Urgently in Kassel, Germany

Date posted:2018-02-08 | Writer: Finer English | Email: [email protected]

Finer English is an established, thriving language school started by Joe Finer in 1998. The school's success is built on a structured approach to teaching, centred on language audits to determine not only the students' competence in English but also the specific work activities for which English is necessary. All students are taught according to their individual learning needs. We are seeking a full-time EFL teacher for an immediate start to teach small groups of business professionals according to their individual learning needs.

Focusing primarily on companies in Kassel, Germany, the school's teaching team now numbers 26, including teachers for six languages besides English.

Finer English is a virtual school - we have no school building and no staff-room where teachers can swap ideas at lunch-time. Lessons are taught on our clients' premises - all of which are reachable by public transport from Kassel city centre.

Because teachers do not meet daily, regular communication by telephone and e-mail is essential. Teacher training sessions are held every few months to develop teaching skills, exchange ideas and reinforce the co-operative team spirit.

Teaching according to each student's specific business needs means we use no set text books unless specifically requested. Teaching materials appropriate to the needs of each individual student are provided by Finer English.


Applications will only be considered from native speakers of English.

Applicants should have at least two years of relevant teaching experience.

Formal EFL qualification is very desirable but not a must.

Personality is important. We are seeking an energetic, open-minded teacher with a passion for both teaching and the English language.

Applicants should also have a good knowledge of world events and business terminology.

Finally, candidates should also be excited both to learn new things and continually improve themselves as teachers.


The advertised vacancy is a freelance position. Starting rates are commensurate with teachers' experience.

Finer English is pleased to offer teacher support and has a member of staff for that purpose. We will gladly assist the successful applicant with the red tape process and help find suitable housing.


If you are interested in the position, please send your CV along with a current photograph to the email address given on the job heading.  

Due to the high volume of applications we typically receive, we will not be replying to any applicant who does not fulfil the job requirements specified in this ad.       

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


In this unit I have learnt the characteristics, responsibilities, roles and behaviors of teachers and students in the classroom. I gained knowledge on the qualities which make a good teacher and a good learner, and how we can make the process of learning a new language most effective, enjoyable and useful. I was also instructed on the language levels and the distinctions between them.In this unit i learnt about the Tense System and the seven most common future tenses: the future simple, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuous, be going + infinitive, the present simple, and the present continuous. The unit explained how to properly use and identify these tenses in a sentence and gave ideas for forming this into a lesson plan clear for students.
