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.

Santiago’s real beauty lies in the Vineyards of the Maipo Valley, which is one of the largest wine production regions of South America.

Plaza de Armas is popular for wrought-iron products and sells a diverse variety of exotic products. Across the river there are restaurants, playgrounds and parks.

If you’ve never been to Chile and you don’t know how to speak Spanish, Santiago is the place to start. Teaching experience is not required, but take a TESOL course online or in-class so are ready to stand in front of a classroom.

TEFL Chile and Tourism
