Teaching English in Public Schools in Chile Through the “English Opens Doors” Program

 

By: Michael Kunik

While it is true that the vast majority of English teaching positions available overseas are with private language schools, there are a variety of really popular government sponsored teaching programs that offer foreign instructors opportunities to teach in a public school setting. Among them is the “English Opens Doors” (EOD) program offered by The United Nations Development Program and the Chilean Ministry of Education for teaching English in Chile. The Chilean Ministry of Education recruits volunteers to teach in public schools in exchange for a modest stipend and a homestay with a local family.

A New Life - Teaching English in Valparaiso, Chile

By: Kent Nancollas


Passing through customs we stepped into our new life – one that wasn’t supposed to start for another few years.  Left behind were those who couldn’t imagine themselves living abroad, in front of us the excitement of meeting the unknown head-on.

But it wasn’t supposed to happen this way.  Our plan was to travel after we retired.  However life sometimes throws a curve ball at you and like many, mine was losing my job.  I chose to leave behind a lucrative career in the software industry and teach English.  After three months of on-line coursework at International TEFL Academy I earned my TEFL certificate.  Jessica, my instructor in Chicago, did a masterful job of preparing the class for our teaching futures. Now I was ready to begin my new career as a professor (teacher).
