About the English Language Teacher Position
Cobblestoned streets, church spires, and more castles than you can count fill this fairytale land in the heart of Europe. This picturesque place, filled with beauty and a rich history, is spiritually empty. During Communism, only adults were allowed to go to church. This has left several generations unchurched and Atheism is normal. Many people in this region have never read the Bible, let alone know a Christian.
Public high schools have a need for native English speakers to teach conversational English. Most teachers are able to meet with their students outside of class by hosting English clubs. It is a great way to build relationships with students and show Christ’s love as you live out your daily life.

Country Summary (from the World Factbook)
At the close of World War I, the Czechs and Slovaks of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire merged to form Czechoslovakia. During the interwar years, having rejected a federal system, the new country's predominantly Czech leaders were frequently preoccupied with meeting the increasingly strident demands of other ethnic minorities within the republic, most notably the Slovaks, the Sudeten Germans, and the Ruthenians (Ukrainians). On the eve of World War II, Nazi Germany occupied the territory that today comprises the Czech Republic, and Slovakia became an independent state allied with Germany. After the war, a reunited but truncated Czechoslovakia (less Ruthenia) fell within the Soviet sphere of influence. In 1968, an invasion by Warsaw Pact troops ended the efforts of the country's leaders to liberalize communist rule and create "socialism with a human face," ushering in a period of repression known as "normalization." The peaceful "Velvet Revolution" swept the Communist Party from power at the end of 1989 and inaugurated a return to democratic rule and a market economy. On 1 January 1993, the country underwent a nonviolent "velvet divorce" into its two national components, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.
