Most first-time visitors to Greece come with specific ideas in mind; however, the country offers so much more than the typical tourist images. Peak tourist season is July through August; when travelling to find work, try to avoid these months. As in many European nations, teaching ESL in Greece can be hard for teachers without EU citizenship.
The combination of Oxford Seminars' internationally recognized TESOL/TESL Certification and our Graduate Placement Service included with the course makes teaching English abroad a reality.
