Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

For those of you who want to teach English in South America, there are many teaching opportunities available, especially for those people with a TESOL or TEFL Certificate. This beautiful continent is home to many locals seeking to learn English as it is in great demand as a second language, both for the business communities and ordinary people who desire to know the language for a variety of purposes.

Throughout the continent, there are many English language schools that will provide employment to a qualified ESL teacher. Each of these schools requires teachers with a range of skills. Teachers with certification in TESOL, TESL or TEFL are required in most countries, while in some smaller towns all that is required is good command of the English language and a desire to teach English in South America.

Employment opportunities are also flexible, with many countries and institutions requiring a commitment of two years, others will happily accept teachers on a short-term contract. Part time and full time work opportunities are available. Wages depend upon location in many South American countries, and although teachers can expect to receive a potentially lower wage than they would receive in say Europe or Asia, the life experience is by far worth it. Rest assured though that some of the more prosperous countries and larger cities do pay a higher and competitive salary.

There are specialized English training schools in South America that provide on-the-job training for international students, enabling them to gain certification to teach English as a Second Language with actual TESL students in their classrooms. This is a great option for you if you’re looking to learn and teach English in South America.

Choosing a country to work in is a personal choice, and each promises an unforgettable experience. Once the teacher has chosen a country, making contact with a suitable school is relatively easy. Nowadays teachers prefer to use online recruiting agencies such as i-to-i Teach English Abroad. Work visas and passports are also required and this will help the completion of extensive paperwork requirements. New and returning teachers should allow time to complete the formalities prior to assignment.

Finding opportunities to teach English in South America is not difficult. Online postings and various South American newspapers often advertise jobs for international teachers. Private schools recruit staff by approaching institutions that train teachers. Travelers and visitors to the continent who look for work may also find local opportunities as they go along their visit within different countries. There are many opportunities for teachers with appropriate qualifications to teach in schools at either the primary level right on through to senior school levels. The academic year commences in February and ends in December.

Some businesses provide English classes to their staff and this is a new and unique option for you if you want to teach English in South America. Other classes are privately held in the evenings after work hours have finished. Morning classes tend to be structured, whereas evening classes are more conversational and a little less formal.

South Americans have a great capacity to live life to the fullest, and they love to learn English with that same enthusiasm. Teachers who choose to teach English in South America, will never regret the opportunity to teach in this beautiful continent. Just make sure that before you go you know what kind of TESOL teaching requirements you need in order to get hired as quickly as possible.
