About Sardinia, Italy
The city of Sassari is located in the northwestern part of the island, a mere of Sardinia. With a population of 150,000 people, it has all of the amenities of the large city while preserving the feel of a small town. A smattering of influences can be seen in its Catalan-Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque architecture. During the months of July through September, Sassari has a lively nightlife complete with outdoor concerts, exhibitions and a wide variety of leisure-time activities.
Use Sassari as your base to explore the rest of this fascinating and beautiful island. Blessed with 1,200 miles of coastline, Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The stunning island boasts plenty of white sand beaches along its coast, while the inland terrain is arid, mountainous and home to olive groves, wheat fields, grazing sheep and spectacular views. No stay on Sardinia is complete without a visit to the impressive prehistoric ruins, known as nuraghe, located throughout the island.

TEFL Jobs in Italy
Types of Schools
Enrollment in English language schools is increasing at a dramatic rate among Italians. Many international schools in Italy offer their entire curriculum in English, meaning teaching positions are available in all subject areas for native English speakers. Milan is considered a promising destination for English teachers although small towns in Sicily and Sardinia, in the Dolomites and along the Adriatic all have more than their fair share of private language schools and institutes.
CELTA and other classroom-based TEFL certification is highly regarded in Italy and throughout Europe, and will qualify you for jobs at language institutes. Some jobs may also require a bachelor's degree, experience, or EU citizenship, but Americans, Canadians, and Australians can all be found working in Italy.
Jobs at language institutes in Italy are available year-round. Additional work opportunities include English summer camps and freelance tutoring although knowledge of Italian is an asset for the latter choice.
