Why is it interesting to be a native English teacher in Moscow?
Hello, I’m an English language teacher in Moscow and want to talk about my life, and work here in the Russian capital.
When I arrived in Moscow 3 years ago I really had no idea of what to expect. As a tourist you imagine the Capital city of Russia to be large but it was vast beyond my wildest dreams. Surprisingly it is an extremely green city with an abundant number of large parks both in the centre and the suburbs, and of course like most major cities has an uncountable number of attractions and amenities to keep any person occupied.
The people of Moscow
However, what I noticed as an Englishman living in Moscow is that the people are extremely polite and happy to see and speak to you. It is a remarkable experience. Of course as a teacher your students are always happy to see you, as they want to learn, but unlike in some different places they also take a real interest in your life and always want to find out about you.
I have even noticed that people who don’t speak any or little English will try and speak with you. I often get people trying to talk with me either in the Metro or in the city centre or even when I’m in the Sauna or Steam room at my fitness centre! When they realize you are British/American they take an extra interest.
With an official population of around 15 million people Moscow is the biggest city in Europe, and one of the biggest in the world. Moscow is and incredibly green city and in some ways compares to London in the fact that just about wherever you go you can find some sort of beautiful park or stylish boulevard. As opposed to what some people may believe it is an incredibly modern city with many huge shopping centres spread around the city, stylish café’s and restaurants that serve a vast range of European/Russian and Asian cuisine. The city also offers a vast number of bars and nightclubs, and many interesting museums too.
Transport in Moscow is essential for an English teacher as I am always travelling from lesson to lesson. However, the Moscow Metro system makes life very easy – you can be from the end of a metro line to the centre in just 25mins. This is perfect for finalizing your lesson plan! It does get busy at rush hour but as a teacher I regularly beat this by finishing my final lesson of the day at around 7:30/8pm. Another perk of teaching English is you get to see many different areas. I know the Metro system and stations better than a lot of Russians.
Flights and visa
Regarding flights there are 2 carriers that travel the direct 3.5-4 hour flight from Moscow – London – British Airways & Aeroflot.
Flights are from London Heathrow, and there are also many cheap one change flights from other UK airports .Both major Moscow airports have bus, train (directly into the centre) and taxi transfers.
We can also help with your visa. Please contact us about this for further infomation.
The Job – Agencies or schools?
Now you could think teaching a foreign person a new language would be difficult and a terrifying job. However, this is far from the truth. Teaching Russian’s English is such a fruitful job, I would go as far as saying it’s easily the best the job I have ever done. You feel a real sense of pleasure to take someone from Elementary or Pre-intermediate level to an Upper-intermediate level or if you are lucky enough to work with the student over an extended period of time, an Advanced level.
I would advise anyone who is thinking of coming to Moscow or already in Moscow that agencies are the best way to go. First of all they are much higher payers than schools, and although they usually do not offer accommodation and/or visa help, they difference in salary is so vast that all the ‘extra’s’ that schools offer just doesn’t compare. Plus, with an agency you have the advantage of accepting and rejecting what work you would like to take. You can work full-time, part-time or flexi-time.
If your are thinking of coming to Moscow or already in Moscow, feel free to contact us about any of the above. We stand out as the number 1 company for Language teaching in Moscow.
