Do you want to study at a world-class university for free? Germany has opened the doors for American and Canadian students who want to get a university degree. Now you can get your university degree in Germany for the same price that German citizens pay: 500 Euro a year! According to US Uncut, more than 90,000 American students are now studying for virtually nothing in Germany! Why pay $40,000 for a university degree and get deep into debt when you can study abroad and have a great job waiting for you after graduation?
Unfortunately one freelance job is not enough to get your visa where I am located. I was told that I would be responsible for obtaining one more line of work, so I looked for business English jobs in Bochum since these are the best paid jobs in the city.
Luckily I received an interview quickly. The administration was pleased with me and decided to write me the necessary letter I needed to provide the Immigration office.
As the weeks slowly went by and I was starting to get more and more nervous about my visa, I finally received an answer from one of the schools I have applied. The name of the school was Sprachkunst im Luisenhof. It was located right in the middle of my city in a beautiful little square right next to an outdoor Greek restaurant.
When I first started my search for a TESOL job in Germany, I began to search online for different language schools in the area. I applied to school after school and received little feedback. Shortly after, my girlfriend got a job in another city called Bochum. So we had to move to there, which was good seeing that nothing had come up for me in Kassel.
It was October of 2010 when I sold my car, quit my job, and bought my plane ticket. It came to a point in my life where I just had to simply “do it”. On November 16th I flew into Frankfurt, Germany and headed east to Kassel where my girlfriend lived. I had little money ( I refused to touch the money I got for my car in case something happened) and no idea where I was going to get a TESOL job in Germany. All I knew was that I had made a huge decision and I needed to make it work.
