Filled with an incredible history and boasting the leisurely Mediterranean lifestyle, the idea of teaching English in Greece appeals to many ESL teachers. Most first-time visitors to Greece come with specific ideas in mind; however, the country offers so much more than the typical tourist images. The peak tourist season is July through August, so try to avoid these months when trying to find work because businesses do not usually have much time. Like many European nations, teaching ESL in Greece can be hard for teachers without EU citizenship.
