At the moment Poland is one of the best places around the world to find a job as an English teacher. TEFL courses that's Teaching English as a Foreign Language are run in many cities across Poland. The demand for TEFL teachers is enormous and teaching language is a brilliant way to fund your travel and earn as you go.

Even if you don't have a work visa or EU/EEA citizenship, it should be no problem for you to offer private lessons. The going rate is about PLN30 for conversation or lessons. Doing these private lessons is a great way to make some money and meet some English-speaking educated, interesting Poles at the same time. In general students, private and in classes, are very friendly toward their teachers, inviting them for dinner or drinks, and sometimes acting quite emotional during their last lesson. Post your services on telephone poles and bus stops with an email or phone number, or use Gumtree, Poland's version of Craigslist.

Gumtree Polska (http://www.gumtree.pl) is useful for finding students, and everything else, including accommodations, used cars, pets, Polish tutors, etc.

Ekorki (http://ekorki.pl) good to make a profile if looking for longer term teaching gigs. More formal than Gumtree, and used by serious employers. A little bit like Monster.com in the US.

Studying in Poland can be an incredible experience for foreigners. Foreign students can finance a B.A. education for as low as PLN24,000 and a M.A. education for as low as PLN20,000.

There are many international schools and great universities in Poland and of them the Jagiellonian University (http://www.uj.edu.pl/) in particular is renowned as member of the Coimbra Group and is also a core member of the Europaeum. The University of Warsaw is the top ranked public university in Poland. National Film School in Łódź is the most notable academy.

Private universities are a recent invention, but have been successful enough where several private schools are competing with the major public universities in terms of quality. Private schools may actually be cheaper for foreign students, who are not entitled to a free education at one of Poland's public universities.
