Language Schools

When you arrive in a likely place your initial steps might include some of the following: copy a list of schools from the yellow pages (many are now available on-line such as the Pages Jaunes in France or the Gelbe Seiten in Germany; read the classified columns of the local papers; check notice boards in likely locations such as universities, TEFL training centers, English language bookshops (where you should also notice which EFL materials are stocked), or places frequented by expatriate teachers. 

 After exploring the list of potential employers, get information about the public transport system and ways of getting to the place of your possible employment. Than phone to school and arrange the meeting with its headmaster.  Even if an initial chat does not result in a job offer, you may learn something about the local TEFL scene that will help you at the next interview, especially if you ask lots of questions.
