    Description

    Hi,

    We live in the south-west of Poland, in a a picturesque town called Jelenia Gora (70,000 people), at the foot of the Karkonosze mountains, so in winter it's perfect for skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding (one of the ski slopes is just 15 minutes' drive from our house) or hiking in the summer. The are also a lot of cycling routes if you like cycling.

    We live just outside Jelenia Gora but it takes you less than 15 minutes to drive and get to town which provides everything you may need like shopping centres, cinemas, restaurants, coffee shops, fitness clubs, tennis courts and others.
    The location of Jelenia Gora is great as it's close to the German and Czech borders, so from here you can easily get to Prague in the Czech Republic, or Berlin, in Germany.
    About Poland, well where can you feel the atmosphere of the movie „Schindler's List" better than in Auschwitz, a popular Polish town where the movie was made. And have you seen „The Pianist"? It's a great film too whose action takes place here, in Warsaw, our capital city. Gdansk, where the Second World war started, is also a beautiful place. I could write down a very long list of Polish places you would like a lot and I am absolutely sure you would love Polish food, too

    Anyway, the School we run is in Jelenia Gora.
    There are three teachers working here, including one native speaker. Most classes are in the the afternoon or evening. At the moment we are looking for an English native speaker who would like to come and teach English to our students (aged 10-19) for min 4 weeks starting April 2020. The classes are small (max 4 students) or super small (one-to-one) :) Since they are so small we have a great relationship with our students who often come and learn with us for a few years.
    There are on average 25 lessons a week and it's a paid position. Of course we provide full board.
    Right now, there is a lovely young American girl working with us who came to Poland in August 2019, however she needs to go back home because of some unforeseen circumstances :(

    Well, I am sure you may have a few questions concerning the job so please do not hesitate to contact us.
    Thank you very much.
