Teaching English in Slovenia 101
Known for its stunning scenic beauty and charming medieval cities, Slovenia is one of the smallest countries in the world, so it's not a major job market for teaching English. That said, with an advancing economy and increasing integration with Europe, learning English has become more important than ever.
English teaching jobs in Slovenia are available in September and January with an expected downtime in August. A typical teaching contract is 10 or 12 months in length. In most cases, schools recruit teachers in-person, while some will recruit in advance via phone/Skype. A BA/BS is preferred but not required to teach English in Slovenia, however, a TEFL certification is a must. Preferences are typically given to those with citizenship from a European Union nation.
Wages are modest - you certainly won't get rich teaching English in Slovenia, but the cost of living is average, so you should expect to break even while living comfortably. The English teaching job market in Slovenia is strongest in major cities like Ljubljana.
