Group Description

Though frequently overlooked in favour of Spain, Portugal has an ever-growing market for EFL teachers. Demand is greatest in north and central Portugal, with jobs cropping up in historic centres such as Coimbra, Braga and Viseu and in small seaside towns like Aveiro and Póvoa do Varzim. Wages are generally low (€700-1,000 net per month) but the cost of living, at least outside the big cities, is reasonable. As with everywhere else in Europe, an EU passport is preferred.
