TEFL Teachers Needed in Kassel, Germany

Date posted:2010-05-05 | Writer: Finer English | Email: [email protected]

Finer English, an established, thriving language school started by Joe Finer in 1998, has openings in Kassel for TEFL qualified teachers. The school's success is built on a structured approach to teaching, centered 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.

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 about every two 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.

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

Formal EFL qualification, such as TEFL or TESOL is desirable.

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, please send your resume to Peter Schimunek (Assistant Director of Studies) at the e-mail address given on the job heading.

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, different types of assessments and tests, for example placement tests, diagnostic tests, progress tests, practice tests and external tests, are introduced very detailedly. I've just learned a lot information about these assessments, especially when and why to use them to evaluate my students. I think I will use them properly in my lessons and then improve both my teaching and their learning.Teaching the conditional tense always proves challenging so this was a good refresher, especially the detailed information on the different types of conditionals and their examples. The teaching ideas will also come in handy when next this topic is taught for example, split sentences and the nuclear bunker game. These are fun, natural ways in which the topic can be presented to non native English speakers.
