Teaching English in Scandinavia


Scandinavia is a collection of countries in Northern Europe with a common heritage. Although there are different definitions of which countries Scandinavia comprises, a good general list is:

  • Denmark
  • Iceland
  • Finland
  • Norway
  • Sweden

Generally speaking the people of Scandinavia have a reputation for excellent linguistic skills. English is taught in state schools to a very high level and to work in a Scandinavian country you will generally need a good level of education – a first degree plus TEFL Certificate is an absolute minimum – plus experience and ideally a further degree.
