The Czech Republic is probably the most popular country in the region for qualified EFL teachers. Work is quite easy to obtain and salaries, while not being of a high level in international terms, offer a reasonably comfortable lifestyle. Any teacher with a TESOL certificate should have little problem in finding work. The beautiful city of Prague is particularly popular.
