Teaching English in the Dominican Republic 101

The Dominican Republic is not a large job market for teaching English in Latin America, but that doesn't mean that there are not opportunities. English teaching jobs in the Dominican Republic typically are available year-round and are dominant from January-March and May-August. In most cases, schools interview and recruit teachers locally on the ground in the Dominican Republic, with some schools interviewing in advance via phone/Skype.

Wages are modest - you certainly won't get rich teaching English in the Dominican Republic - the cost of living is low, so you should expect to break even while living comfortably. The English teaching job market in the Dominican Republic is strongest in major cities like Santiago and Santo Domingo.

Please note, that while a Bachelor's degree is not required to secure a job in this country, it still can be strongly preferred by employers.  If you do not have a degree, you should be prepared for a more competitive job search.
