The school employs around 150 Polish teachers and 25 full-time native speakers of English, concentrating on English, German and Italian tuition. We are currently looking for experienced and innovative teachers with the enthusiasm and creativity to present highly effective and original lessons.
All PROFI-LINGUA schools offer classes Monday to Friday beginning in the late afternoon and ending around 8.30 pm (and for some teachers Saturday 8.00 am ๑ 2.30 pm). Each 80 minute class has a maximum of 15 students, usually under-graduates and young professionals aged between 18-35. Levels range from Beginner to Proficiency level, although the native-speakers usually teach only higher and Cambridge examination levels in partnership with a Polish teacher. Photocopying and audio-visual equipment is freely available and there is a teaching resources library in each branch. The contract runs from mid-October to mid-June.
As a country Poland offers a comprehensive and cheap transport network (both nationally and internationally) with easy access to cities renowned for their architecture and history (Krakow, Wroclaw, Gdansk) and protected national parks encompassing lakes, mountains and forests (Tatry, Pieniny, Karkonosze, Mazury). Seventy-five per cent of our international teachers stay for a second or third year and are offered the option of transferring between branches.

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.


This unit discusses the many different aids available to assist teachers and students in the teaching and learning of ESL. I myself am a visual learner so I lean toward the WB or the cds or ohp. I need to be able to see what I am supposed to be learning as well as hearing it.The video camera/smartphone video sounds like it would be a fun tool for a project outside of the classroom. Having the students interview people for a project.I enjoyed this lesson because it was very thorough in it's explanation of the different games to use for different levels. I also really like the material course book and downloaded it and am very happy to have this for when I continue teaching. I've implemented some games in the past, most notably a story where each student says one sentence before continuing, and am happy that now I have a much larger array of games to choose from.
