Job Description

We have openings for winter semester beginning early February in the following locales:

In Budapest: 1. A top academic high school, 2. a middle school (5th-8th), and 3.& 4. elementary schools (1st-8th)
5. In a town near Esztergom north of Budapest on the Danube Bend, an elementary with few hours per week at a high school
6. In western Hungary, an elementary in a small city that is home to a NATO base so an international population
7. In western Hungary, a small town very near the wonderful, historic city of Szekesfehervar
8. In SE Hungary, a Protestant elementary school convenient to Szeged, a beautiful univeristy city 
9. In NW Hungary, a preschool/kingergarten very near the Austrian and Slovak borders (NO BA required)

At each of these schools, you will be the sole teacher in the classroom but you will work in conjunction with the English department (comprised mostly of Hungarian teachers). You get the fun job of encouraging your students to speak English without feeling self-conscious (music, role-plays, games, etc. may be a big part of your lesson planning.)  There are 26 classes per week, and you will meet with each class of 15-20 students once a week. 

As stated in the description of our organization, we can only remain in service to our schools and our teachers by requiring a fee. For these winter openings, we are lowering the program fee for all from $1800 or $1500 for the semester to $1200. If you wish to stay on for the full following academic year, it will be an additional $1200, and for each year after, $750 for us to renew all of your documents and to continue to take care of your needs. (We have a bit over 100 teachers in Hungary each year, and the majority stay for 2 or more years.)
Because of our contract with the schools, you also receive apartment and utilities, salary during non-teaching summers, and Hungarian income tax waived, plus full acceptance of diplomas and other official documents. 


  1. All residence and work permits to live and teach in Hungary
  2. Private fully furnished apartment with utilities paid as part of your salary package
  3. Hungarian government medical coverage
  4. Several day-long orientation—partly virtual, partly in-person in Budapest
  5. National Hungarian teacher’s salary
  6. 24/7 services of our experienced kind, attentive Hungarian director
  7. Hungarian income tax waived (nearly the amount of the program fee)
  8. Salary through summer months without teaching for those remaining next year
  9. Facebook and virtual meetings for teaching tips, travel and assurances
