Boasting history that stretches to the birth of civilization itself, Turkey offers the cosmopolitanism of Europe combined with the flavor and mystique of the Middle East. In the capital city of Istanbul, which traces its roots to the ancient city of Constantinople, you can stroll through the bazaars, palaces and mosques of the old Ottoman city and feel as if you are in the world of the Thousand and One Nights. Hop two miles up the road where streets are lined with upscale boutiques, chic nightclubs and cutting-edge restaurants and you’ll be hard-pressed not to think that you are in Milan or Madrid.
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.
