Paid TEFL Romania Internship

Remote, exotic, developed, and not yet completely overrun by tourists, Romania may not be the first place that comes to mind when teaching abroad programs boast “cultural immersion and ample TEFL jobs.”

It has a whimsical, quirky, creative soul that emulates life and invites you—though sometimes cautiously—to be a part of it’s post-Communist evolution.

Romania is one of the most up-and-coming teaching destinations, and you’ll understand just why when you first arrive.

Capturing the essence of an adventurous life, TEFL in Romania demands a “thinking outside the box” mentality. And you’ve got it.

Your Teaching Experience

The life of an English language summer camp teacher in Romania is definitely one to brag about. Not only do you get to jump around and sing silly songs with cute kiddos all day, you’ll actually impart important language skills and lessons on your students.

Through games, activities, fun excursions, mini field trips, debates, drama, music, and any other creative techniques you devise, you’ll be delivering English grammar lessons on past participles and the correct use of gerunds with a huge smile on your face.

The goals for your month-long program?

1) Give your campers conversational English practice.

2) Stay energetic.

3) Have a great time.

Expect to teach English for ~15 hours per week, with an additional ~15 hours devoted to hosting lessons in sports, drama, and crafts to allow space for more recreational English learning. Budget some time for lesson and activity planning, too!

Cultural Excursions

Wondering what you’re going to do with your precious free time? We’re glad you asked! We know your adventure bucket list is long, but make sure you tack these recommendations from past TEFL interns in Romania towards the top!


Bucharest, or "Little Paris," is worth a visit. See the world's 2nd largest building, stuff your face with balmoș, & live like a king (thanks exchange rate!).


Nothing warms the belly like sarmale, the national dish. The pork-stuffed cabbage rolls are slowly cooked in clay pots, then served with polenta and sour cream.


Make like the locals and head to the Black Sea coast for some serious summer sunbathing. This inland sea boasts historical and archaeological significance!



With pocket money of €400 (€100 per week) plus fully inclusive accommodation and meals throughout the internship and organized day trips (worth €2,000), you are set to enjoy every moment of your time.

€400 Per Month
