Teach English in Peru
Peru is a Latin American tiger. It is truly one of the great success stories in South America and it keeps getting better.
Peru’s economy is growing between 5-9% every year, and it’s a large country with a population of over 30 million people. Peru is geographically diverse with big cities, beautiful rural towns, and rustic, steamy jungles. Peru’s economic success and its popularity as a global tourist destination creates a huge need for English teachers. Peruvians place a high value on academic credentials and they’re always looking to advance their English language skills to remain competitive in the international market.
A TEFL certificate is the basic qualification that opens the door to teaching opportunities throughout Peru. New positions are available every month, year-round. Demand for English teachers is so high that TEFL graduates can immediately begin their career teaching English right after the course. TEFL graduates find opportunities working with adults and teens in both private institutes and public school settings. Private institutes hire year-round. K-12 schools follow the Latin American school year and tend to hire between January and February. The Peruvian culture holds “profes” in high esteem and you should be prepared to dress and act the part.
The low cost of living in Peru means teachers can enjoy a good life, even on a modest salary. Peruvian food is delicious, comes in huge quantities and is cheap; Housing and travel are also very inexpensive. Depending on your lifestyle, a frugal English teacher can save money every month.
