Teach English in Latvia

Date posted:2009-01-25 | Writer: R&V Language Centre | Email: [email protected]

Riga's leading language school has regular openings for TEFL qualified native-speaker English language teachers.

Applicants must hold an EU passport and will preferably have a minimum of 1 year's experience overseas, but this doesn't preclude newly qualified teachers who have the necessary skills, TEFL or equivalent with practical teaching content, and are able to teach adults and teenagers from beginners to advanced, both general and business English.
We offer excellent Terms and Conditions including a very good salary and single apartments in the centre of Riga, the largest and most exciting city in the Baltic States. We arrange residence permits, in return for 26 contact hours a week, working in a small, friendly school, which, since its foundation in 1995, has gained an excellent reputation, and is the only language school locally to be staffed entirely by native speakers.

For more detailed information about the positions, school and country please contact:

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.


I have 24 EYFS children in my class and I make use of the horse shoe arrangement in my class. It works effectively and I have control over the whole class. I have learned a lot about how to handle students more effective. When to interact with them and when to leave them alone. I have learned how important classroom management is and how to create a calm and stable environment for the students to study in.During this lesson I learned about the two main receptive skills which are listening and reading. They are equally important and can be taught in a variety of ways. Pre-teaching difficult vocabulary and pre-selecting the texts for difficulty can be effective ways to make sure that students stay engaged with the material. In addition, students can can be helped by choosing topics which create interest for them.
