Salary & Compensation

The demand for English teachers is strong year-round in Hungary, and most participants have secured teaching positions before the end of the four-week program. Salaries are typically equivalent to US$500-700 per month, which is sufficient to live on comfortably. Most teachers work for private language schools (sometimes part-time at two schools), and some give private lessons to supplement their income. Positions at a university or college, a high school, or even an elementary school are also possible, although those may require a one-year contract.
