General » Fresh Tesol Graduate looking for work in Latin America
Hi Tristan,

I am currently living in Panama, not teaching English right now, but would feel confident finding a job quite easily. Although it depends where exactly you want to go, from my experience, most employers usually expect you to be in Latin America/the city you want to teach in before hiring. It could be quite difficult to secure employment before arrival. You would usually be responsible for travel costs, accommodations, etc. Wages are usually enough to live, but not necessarily save a lot. Do some research of language schools online for a contact starting point and apply :)

Hope this helps!

lol ... Terry, I would say Panama is always a good place to go! I've been down there to visit since my last post, but haven't been able to move yet (that's in process for the new year). However, there's so many options it's hard to decide. Might be off to Brazil now.

Try registering for www.tutela.ca, as they have some resources. The www.copian.ca library may also have some resources if you run a search specific to ESL listening.

Hi Anthony,

I am looking at options to teach in Panama and much like the above postings said, it may be easier to just arrive and network on the ground. I have also had luck with researching training institutions and potential contact for when I get there via facebook and linkedin. This way, you may at minimum have the names of some business owners and/or academic directors to ask for.
