TESOL Jobs in the Baltic States
These states were the most westernized part of the old Russian Empire and are presently looking towards EU membership. This has created a strong demand for native speaker teachers, particularly in Lithuania and Estonia (probably the most progressive of the three). There are numerous openings in both the state and private sectors. Salaries again are low by international standards but high in regard to the cost of living. Qualified teachers who are prepared to travel to the region and look for work should have little difficulty.
