Salary & Cost of Living
Start-up costs will range from $1,100 - $1,600 USD. These are expenses you will incur from your arrival in Colombia until you receive your first paycheck and may include things like rent, apartment supplies, transport, groceries, getting your new local cell phone number set up, etc.
A solid hourly wage enables teachers the opportunity to live a comfortable lifestyle while in Colombia. Teachers can expect to earn $500 - $1,050 USD per month. It is common for teachers in Colombia to also teach English online to supplement their income.
There are no flight or housing benefits/stipends provided so you will need to remember to account for accommodation or temporary housing for your first few weeks in your start-up costs until you find an apartment to rent.
COST OF LIVING & SAVINGS
The cost of living typically ranges between $500-$1,050 USD per month.
English teachers in Colombia can expect to break-even month over month. This means you can cover your rent and bills, support yourself, live comfortably, and enjoy your life abroad to the fullest, but you shouldn't expect to save money at the end of the month. If you are hustling and taking on private tutoring lessons and/or teaching English online in addition to your regular teaching schedule, you may increase your ability to save.
