TEFL Latin America


Listen to a recorded webinar of our Teach Abroad option:

Teaching English abroad is a life-changing experience—travel the world, immerse yourself in new cultures, get international work experience, and be an ambassador for the English language.

English is the lingua franca of the world, especially in education, business, and popular culture. As the global economy grows and as interest in international travel and study abroad expands, the need for English language skills continues to increase. Even as you read this, all over the world, there are millions of students signing up for classes and studying at language institutes, schools, and universities to improve their English. This means the demand for qualified instructors to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) is growing exponentially all over the globe!
