TEFL Summer!

What happens when the weather outside hits minus freezing? You go TEFL down south to work on your tan!

January is the best time of the year to apply for jobs in South America because the school year starts at the end of February. A university degree is necessary to get the work permit, and a TESOL certificate of 100+ hours is required. Most language schools cater to young learners so it is highly recommended to get the TESOL certification package with the TEYL course.

Australia is also a popular TEFL destination because they pay well, the weather is nice all year round, and the country offers a great balance of comfort, order, and adventure. Teachers must hold an advanced TESOL certificate such as TESL Canada, Trinity CertTESOL, or CELTA, and teaching experience is preferred.

The Mighty Iguazu Falls

The Iguazu Falls marks the border between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. The main fall, known as the Devil’s Throat, is 82 meters high and 150 meters wide. Its immense beauty is magnified by approximately 200 smaller waterfalls that surround the u-shaped chasm and the abundant sub-tropical vegetation that remains protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Note that these beautiful waterfalls are situated in a vast natural park. If you are teaching English in Argentina, the province of Misiones is a few hours by plane from the major TESOL cities located in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Cordoba, and Mendoza.
