Latin America takes a back seat to no other region on Earth when it comes to festivals and celebrations. Carnival is Latin America’s most famous festival, but it is just one of hundreds of festivals that occur each year throughout South and Central America. Feria de las Flore (Festival of the Flowers) in Medellin, Colombia, Inti Raymi in Peru, Cinco de Mayo in Mexico, and Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) are just a few fantastic festivals and holidays to check out for great food, drinks, and dancing.
With more than half a billion people taking some form of English course each year in nearly every country on earth, the world is in a sense one big job market for qualified English teachers. Realistically, a native English speaker with a college degree and an accredited TEFL certification can teach English abroad professionally in 80 countries or more and even those without a degree who do get TEFL certified can teach in up to 50 countries. That said, certain countries have higher demand and offer more opportunities than others.
Each year, thousands of English teachers gain employment in Argentina, primarily in Buenos Aires. One of the most stylish and cosmopolitan cities in the Western Hemisphere, the city is known for broad, Parisian-style boulevards, tango clubs and a magnificent mélange of Art Deco, Neo-Baroque and Art Nouveau architectural styles.
