Once the land of the dreaded Vikings and now a progressive society, Sweden has a lot of things to offer those wishing to teach English there. The high quality of life, beautiful architecture, scenic coastline and incredible islands are just some of the things you’ll discover in Sweden.
Although a fairly expensive country, Sweden has something for everyone, no matter what your budget or lifestyle is. Sweden is a highly developed, stable democracy with a modern economy.
English is taught in public elementary and middle schools, and as a result, there are not many chances to teach ESL in Sweden. Those looking to teach will find more opportunities teaching business English or academic test taking courses.
