Teaching Jobs in Iceland

The level of English is very high in Iceland so there is not a great demand for English tuition from the local population. However, limited opportunities to teach Advanced and Business English classes do exist in Reykjavik and these are popular with foreigners working in Iceland. Salaries are relatively low although it can be very lucrative for EU nationals to open up their own language schools if they wish to make Iceland a long-term home. If you are able to find work then Iceland is a delightful country to explore. Geography: Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic volcanic landscape of geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers and black-sand beaches. The capital, Reykjavik, home to the majority of the population, runs on geothermal power and offers a renowned nightlife scene as well as Viking history museums. The glaciers in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsnes national parks are popular for ice climbing, hiking and snowmobiling.
