This is an exciting opportunity to use your TEFL skills that doesn't come along very often! Make the move to Poland now! (EU passport holders preferred due to time constraints). Pascal Connect English Schools in Rybnik, Zory, Wodzislaw and Syrynia are looking for motivated, ambitious, open-minded and sociable, native level English speakers to help us grow. We want EFL teachers who have a special interest in teaching children but are also happy to teach teenagers and adults.


CONNECT was opened in 2010 in the city of Zory, by two native English speakers with over 12 years teaching experience in Poland. After a couple of successful years in Żory, we expanded into Rybnik in August 2012. PASCAL was opened in 2007 by an English teacher (Polish nationality) with 15 years experience in teaching children, teenagers and adults. CONNECT and PASCAL formed a partnership in June 2014. We are happy to announce that we are looking for FOUR more members to join our teaching team. You will be part of a team of 13 native speakers and 12 Polish teachers so you won't feel alone. We are a young vibrant, developing, thoroughly professional school and we have about 1,000 students across our four schools. We aim to provide the highest possible standards of teaching. We teach (mainly, but not exclusively) a direct English method to adults and children.


All four cities are in the Upper Silesian region of Poland and are great places to see many different parts of Europe from; Bratislava, Berlin, Prague, and Vienna can all be reached within 4/5 hours. They have well serviced bus and train stations from which you can reach the nearby mountains if you are interested in skiing or hiking as well as numerous other Polish cities including Krakow (about 1.5 hrs) and Katowice(45mins). Both Krakow and Katowice have major train stations and airports. Ostrava in the Czech Republic is only 40 minutes away and is home to the popular Colours festival. On top of that, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs etc. in the cities and from our experience, students are usually more than happy to show teachers around.

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 explained the differences in teaching specific language structures, like vocabulary or grammatical structure. There are similarities in the way that these pillars of English should be taught, but the distinction between them is important to keep in mind. This unit also reminds me how to use the the staple that is the ESA teaching method, which is key to keep fresh in my mind.As a teacher I need to be able to inspire confidence in my students. I need to discern when to be firm and when to leave my students alone. I need to decide which classroom set up best suits my students and classroom size. Eye contact gestures and my voice is important within my classroom. I need to avoid unnecessary teacher talk time. I need to develop a good rapport with my students.
