EFL Jobs in Denmark
The recent and sudden increase in the demand for English speakers in Denmark has meant that there are a number of EFL positions in Denmark and worldwide. Most countries require that you have a minimum of a Bachelors degree but it is still possible to gain an EFL position in some countries with no qualifications if you are a native speaker.
There are many web sites that offer details of EFL Jobs that are available worldwide including this one. Unlike some other sites though, ESL Junction will not charge you for this or any other service. Below you can find more information about Denmark

EFL Means English as a Foreign Language and should be used in countries where the primary language is something other than English i.e. Spain, Thailand, Brazil.
