Nineteenth-century History

I need help!

I have two semesters left before I graduate from college. That means I will be finished in May 2010. Afterwards I want to teach English or American history somewhere in Germany, but I don’t know how I can go about getting that kind of position. I want to be in Germany for at least two or three years to solidify my German. It doesn’t matter who I teach. A Gymnasium (German high school equivalent) is good or a university or an institute would work as well.

Does anyone happen to know where I could look online? It’s a bit early for it, but I want to start now so I can start directly after I graduate.

I don’t know how many of the readers of this blog will be able to help with this, but I figured I would give it a shot anyway.

    I see that you’d like to teach at a Gymnasium, Uni, or
    Volkshochschule, but there is also the possibility of
    teaching at a DoDDS on a U.S. military base. Many of
    these jobs are hard to get because they are sought after.
    But they would get you into Germany and permit you a
    place to start searching for jobs “on the economy”. I
    might add, that DoDDS schools are good schools and
    parents are very involved. You can start your search at
    http://www.dodea.edu/offices/hr/employment/default.htm. While the website is somewhat confusing, it’ll get ya there. Good luck. I know I loved Europe the 6 years I was there and my German was fluent enough to pass as a Bavarian!

Houses in Fin-de-Siècle Britain: House Architecture in Fin-de-Siècle Britain

Britain and the American Civil War

When most people think of the American Civil War, they do not tend to think of the reaction that the United Kingdom had to it.
