Teaching in Berlin

    I am considering moving to Berlin in 2020.
    Any advice about the international schools there?
    I am a secondary Maths and Physics teacher with IB/IGCSE experience.

    Most international schools I have heard of are in other parts of Germany, but if you get the opportunity for Berlin go for it! One of my favourite cities!

    Thanks for your reply, ed717!
    I am a bit worried as many job descriptions for schools in Germany ask for fluency in German. I am taking a course, but I wonder what sort of language levels they might expect from a non-German teacher.

    Thank you dumbbells66. I just had a look. All schools (apart from Berlin Metropolitan) will have lessons only in English.
    I guess that the "Good level of German preferred" is just to avoid that teachers need help in their daily life (bank applications, phone calls, et cetera).
    I was starting to think I would have been asked to teach Maths in German :D
    Thank you again!
