Programme Overview


Work-Study A

If you are full of enthusiasm for teaching, but have neither a recognised TEFL qualification nor significant EFL teaching experience, then you may apply for Work-Study A. This programme includes a four week intensive TEFL training course and then an internship, which leads to an in-house TEFL certificate. Please note that the Work-Study programme differs from Language Link's full-time teaching internship.

  • The first stage of programme A is for orientation and training in Moscow via the Initial Training Programme (ITP). You have time to settle into your new surroundings and learn about Language Link while undergoing a 4-week intensive, classroom-based TEFL training course.

  • The second stage of the programme is a TEFL internship. During this paid internship you teach 12 - 18 academic hours per week (up to the maximum in your contract); you are observed in action by your supervisors; you observe classes taught by experienced teachers and attend training seminars. The minimum academic hours of teaching per week is 12, but you may request more when agreeing your contract. You are paid for each academic hour you teach. Provided you maintain a high standard of teaching you will continue to receive pay increases at regular intervals throughout the programme. You also attend 9 - 18 academic hours of Russian language tuition each week (in accordance with your contract). The standard programme is based on 12 academic hours of Russian per week, but again, you may request more or less study when agreeing your contract prior to the start of the programme. Upon successful completion of the internship you receive a TEFL certificate and the status of qualified EFL teacher.

Programme Duration: Work-Study A contracts last 14, 22 and 34 weeks plus the ITP (4 weeks).

Annual Start Dates: We prefer participants to start the programme to coincide with one of Language Link's Initial Training Programmes (ITP) for new teachers. ITPs run in August and September.

Locations: Moscow, St Petersburg, Volgograd

Accommodation: You may choose between accommodation in a family home-stay (bed and breakfast or half-board), an apartment shared with a colleague or to opt-out of Language Link accommodation and find your own accommodation in Russia.

Work-Study B

Work-Study B is open to candidates with a recognised TEFL qualification and/or relevant TEFL/TESOL experience.

Throughout the programme you teach for 12 - 18 academic hours and attend 9 - 18 academic hours of Russian classes per week (the standard programme is based on 18 hrs/week teaching and 12 hrs/week study, but you may determine your own balance between teaching and studies prior to the start of your programme if you so wish). Academic support is provided by Language Link's Directors of Studies.

Programme Duration: Work-Study B contracts are for 12, 16, 24 and 36 weeks.

Annual Start Dates: September and January. We can be flexible and discuss the most convenient time for you to arrive when you apply. However, if you apply to Work-Study over the summer (June-September) please be aware that the number of English teaching hours we can offer during this period may be lower than normal.

Locations: Moscow, St Petersburg, Volgograd

Accommodation: You may choose between accommodation in a family home-stay (bed and breakfast or half-board), an apartment shared with a colleague or to opt-out of Language Link accommodation and find your own accommodation in Russia.

If you would like to participate in Language Link's Work-Study Programme, please apply online.
