How to begin teaching in Georgia

Georgia is an Eastern European country situated between Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia. It’s a country with a rich and fascinating history. It’s a country of cathedrals, historic buildings and quaint villages and it even claims to be the birthplace of wine.

The capital city Tbilisi is a beautiful, old but cosmopolitan city, where you can spend many hours drinking coffee in sidewalk cafes. If you’re interested in the wine industry, head to Kakheti, from where you can explore the winelands and numerous castles and monasteries. If you take a hike up Mount Kazberg you will find a spectacular monastery at the top; you won’t find a monastery with a better view! If you’re a fan of winter sports, head to the ski slopes of Bakuriani.

Georgian people are famous for their kindness and hospitality to visitors and guests. Friendship is important, and guests are considered to be gifts from God. Rest assured, you will never be lonely in Georgia

Teaching Opportunities

Georgian is a fascinating language which has no similarities to other languages. Russian is also widely spoken here but English is becoming more popular, especially with the younger generations, and there are now numerous initiatives by the Georgian government to extend English teaching.

Teaching jobs can be found in private language schools and government schools. Teaching contracts may include reimbursement for flights and accommodation. There is a volunteer programme organised by the government to place foreign teachers with local teachers in schools and the two teachers work together in planning and delivering lessons, which can be a great help when starting out teaching.

A number of jobs are considered volunteer placements and so salaries will be very low, but there are other paid opportunities available, especially in private language schools. If you’re looking for a friendly country with a warm and supportive teaching environment, come to Georgia and gain some experience and enjoy this fascinating country.

Teaching requirements

To qualify for teaching position, a BA/BS degree is typically required. Contract lengths can vary from 3 to 12 months, with peak hiring seasons in August and January. Non-citizens will need a tourist visa to work in this position. The teaching opportunities are open to both children and adults. The average monthly cost of living ranges from 450 to 1,800 GEL, while the average monthly salary ranges from 670 to 4,500 GEL.
