4 Rules to Follow When Finding a Job Teaching English in Chile

By: Scott Mistler-Ferguson

For starters, let me explain my job in Santiago. I currently work at Adolfo Ibañez University located east of Peñalolen. I teach a prep course for the TOEFL exam (Test of English as a Foreign Language). For anyone who’s unfamiliar with the exam, it basically serves as a proficiency test in English for potential students who are not native English-speakers. It is required for entry into universities in the USA, UK, Australia, and many other English-speaking nations.
