I'm hoping to move to Italy at the beginning of next year but had a couple of questions I wanted to ask here.
I'm curious to find out if it is likely, not just possible, that I will be able to find work with a language school in January and also if freelance work can be picked up quickly. A previous post mentioned that there is a recruitment period in January but this might be quite small, as it will mostly cover teachers who have left at Christmas. I'm worried that the positions available in January will already have been filled by teachers in Italy through word of mouth. Any thoughts on this?
Ideally I would like to work completely freelance however I know that it will take some time to build up contacts and students. Is it possible to make a living working on a freelance basis and how long does it take to get to the point where you are able to do this?
I'm interested in working in Lombardy, currently studying a 120 hour TEFL course (mixture of online/lessons), have a BA degree and speak good, conversational Italian.
Thanks for your help,
