Opportunity in Russia For EFL Teachers

Date posted:2017-01-26 | Writer: Reward Foreign Language Centre | Email: [email protected]

Reward Foreign Language Centre, the biggest professional language school in Volgograd, has a position for a TEFL trained teacher. Volgograd is one of the most attractive and modern cities in Russia (former Stalingrad during World War II where the famous Stalingrad battle took place).

Volgograd is situated in the south of the European part of the country on the Volga River and is very picturesque. With the population of over 1 million, it is one of the biggest Russian cultural, educational and industrial centers. The combination of all these factors makes it a perfect place to live and work. We are interested in having a responsible native level speaker who can work independently and in a team.

REWARD is a rapidly developing private language school run by Professor Anna Mitina, doctor of science in pedagogics. There are 7 branches all over Volgograd and 2 in its satellite city Volzhskiy. We offer a wide range of group courses (5-8 students) and one-to-one tuition in a number of languages - English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Czech, Chinese, and others. Teaching English includes General English, Business English, Exam Preparation, Corporate Training and tailor-made courses. We teach adults, schoolchildren and pre-school kids.

We also offer a number of creative programs like “Linguistic week-ends” outside the city to discover the life and culture of different English-speaking countries - a kind of immersion into the language. On Sundays, we have Speech Practice Clubs designed and conducted by our teachers and native-speaking instructors. Schoolchildren enjoy their holidays in our children language camps in the most picturesque area of the Volgograd region and at the Black Sea during school holidays.

Our study rooms are designed and equipped to the highest standard. We have an extensive library of up-to-date published ESL materials; our offices contain photocopiers, printers and computer terminals with free Internet access. However, our greatest resource is our supportive, creative and dedicated teaching staff. We currently employ more than 70 teachers including 15 native speakers from the UK, the USA, Spain, France, and Italy.

If you are attracted by the opportunity of working in a stimulating and challenging environment and feel that you can make an effective contribution to the company, we would be happy to employ you on a long-term contract.

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 covered the past tense. Like the present tense, there were 4 different tenses to learn, past simple, past continuous, past perfect, and past perfect continuous. The past tense has many irregular verbs which can be difficult for the students to remember (continuous practice will help make perfect). Narrative story telling is a great way to practice the past tense grammar points.This really an important unit, talking about the most important and vital material, equipment and resources while using them for an effective class delivery. It helps the ESL teachers in order to use them effectively for more effective outcome of the class. It talks about some conservative techniques as well as some modern techniques depending on availability for the teachers in classes.
