To teach English in Denmark you need to get an official recognition of your credentials at the Denmark consulate, teach on a tourist visa, or receive letters of invitation from an employer. Prospective employers usually prefer EU citizenship, college education, and for applicants to be present for the interview process. There are vacant positions at vocational schools, higher education institutions, and adult learning centers.
Once the seat of Viking raiders and later a major north European power, Denmark has evolved into a modern, prosperous nation that is participating in the general political and economic integration of Europe. It joined NATO in 1949 and the EEC (now the EU) in 1973. However, the country has opted out of certain elements of the European Union's Maastricht Treaty, including the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), European defense cooperation, and issues concerning certain justice and home affairs.
The Kingdom of Denmark is the smallest and southernmost of the Nordic countries. Located north of Germany (its only land neighbor), southwest of Sweden, and south of Norway, it is in Scandinavia in northern Europe, but not on the Scandinavian Peninsula.
Denmark borders the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, and consists of a peninsula named Jutland (Jylland) attached to Northern Germany, the islands of Funen (Fyn), Zealand, Bornholm (Bornholm) and many smaller islands, often referred to as the Danish Archipelago.
Denmark is a constitutional monarchy, and the oldest monarchy in the world, and is part of the European Union. Greenland and the Faroe Islands are crown territories of Denmark, each with political home rule. Denmark is one of the elected members of the UN Security Council and is a leader in the "Scandinavian Model" of public services.
