Opportunities for growth

Fluent City is the fastest-growing language school in the country – and we want you to grow with us. We offer unique avenues for growth and development unlike anything offered by other language schools. In our supportive environment, high-performing teachers are able to adopt leadership positions within their departments and take their teaching careers to the next level.


Our base level, but there’s nothing basic about it. We only accept the best-of-the-best; teachers who create exceptional experiences inside and outside the classroom, and have an innate passion for language and culture. We give training and 1:1 mentorship to facilitate growth opportunities from Day 1.

Senior Teacher

They have a deep understanding of our teaching methods, and play an active mentorship role for newer instructors, while still continuing to learn and perfect their own craft. Senior Teachers are rewarded with priority scheduling, and a competitive compensation package.

Head Teacher

Our most skilled, top-tier instructors. Head Teachers set the tone for our unique style of education across all business lines and inspire their peers to achieve the same levels of excellence. Not only do they play the lead role at our organization, in teaching group classes of their choice, they also act as contributors and editors to our Teachers’ Vault of materials.

What our teachers have to say


Senior Russian Teacher

“The team is extremely supportive and it’s hard not to love what they do. Teaching at Fluent City is the best way to do what you love, meet fascinating people from all walks of life, and - as an extra bonus - get paid for it.”


Senior Arabic Teacher

“Fluent City is professional, friendly and up-to-date. By far the best language school!”


Spanish Teacher

“I love the vibe – the people we work with are all very fun, not super square-minded like at other language schools. We have fun and communicate and we are open with our students, and I really like that way of thinking.”
