    Thread: Teaching Jobs in S.America?

    1. #1

      Huh? Teaching Jobs in S.America?

      Hi everyone,

      I'm looking for a big career move in the next few months, and I'd like to teach English and/or French in South America. Also looked into some Asian countries but I'd like to compare the pros and cons of a few different places before I make the move.

      If anybody can give me any pointers on the best places to go, and maybe where to start with finding work, accommodation and so on I'd be very grateful.

      Hey there 007 (any relation?),

      That's a pretty comprehensive list of schools there, but if you're just looking to go straight to recruiters/companies, maybe if you wanted to teach for corporations as an example, take a look at Expat Hiring; Multilingual Jobs, Overseas Jobs. You can search directly by location and job language.

      Hope that's useful!
