Before I decided to move abroad, Iwent to many panel discussions to see if traveling would be the right option for me after graduation. During one interesting talk, a panelist said traveling was great, but, “You still have to get up every day and make the coffee."

Top 12 Reasons to Teach English in Latin America

1. A Great Job Market for Teaching English Abroad

The emerging economies of countries like Brazil, Chile, and Colombia (just to name a few) have generated huge demand for qualified native English speakers to teach English in Latin America. When Latin American companies conduct business with American, British, and even Chinese or Japanese companies, the language used is primarily English, so as Latin American countries integrate with the global economy, the need for English education becomes greater. In addition, booming tourism throughout the region requires many businesses and individuals to gain fluency in the English language. As a result, thousands of schools and language institutes employ tens of thousands of new teachers across the region each year.
