    Working as an English Teacher as a non-native speaker

    Hey, thank you all for your kind responses and especially you Marisa. I already did the WHV in Australia and that was also the time I fell in love with the country and everything. You said it: To get a job teaching English is quite unrealistic. Is it possible to teach just one subject ? In my case it would be Physical Education. Or is it basically impossible and it´s always two subjects being taught ? Greetings and thanks so much so far !!
  2. Hey there ! I will soon graduate from university as a Secondary School Teacher here in Germany. I am very eager to pursue my career in Australia and luckily this profession is on the Medium and Long-term strategic skills list. Here in Germany I studied Physical Education and English. That gives me a good chance to pass the IELTS language test. Even though my English is very good, teaching English as a non-native speaker to native speakers seems not a very good idea somehow. I can of course teach English here in Germany to non-native speakers, but teaching the language in Australia doesn´t convince me so much and naturally native speakers are still an edge better. So is it possible to teach just Physical Education or is a second subject always obligatory ? From what I read its always two subjects being taught. Another possibility would be to teach German. But I don´t think the demand in public schools as a Secondary School Teacher to teach German is so high in Australia. And I am a natve speaker, but I don´t have a degree in teaching German and I didn´t studied it in Germany. Do you think I should give it a try or just let go ? Stay safe everyone and thanks for any opinions or advice
