Paid TEFL Argentina Buenos Aires Internship

Quaint, charming Argentina is an oasis for both experience and value.

The cost of living is low, the porteños (locals) are incredibly friendly, the street food is abundant (and tastes 1,000x better than whatever leftovers you’re eating now), and the opportunities for teaching English as a native or fluent English speaker in Argentina are boundless.

Bonus: You’ll find enough tango classes to fill up every day of the week, so when you’ve wrapped up your lesson planning, you’ll always find a new corner and barrio to explore—not to mention a new alfajore to sample.

Your Teaching Experience

You’ll adore being based in Buenos Aires for your TEFL internship, where the bookstores and Old World charm are bountiful.

The peak times to find English teaching jobs in Argentina are in the spring, AKA the start of the school year (which lasts March-December).

As part of your TEFL course inclusions, you’ll complete 10 hours of observed teaching practice at a local institute—who could later be your future employer!

Most TEFL placements in Buenos Aires involve teaching groups of adult business clients or adolescents, and you can expect to be given a fixed syllabus.

Don’t worry, you’re not on your own, young gaucho. You’ll have a local teaching colleague to assist you daily.

Your TEFL salary in Argentina will range from 150-175 pesos hourly and you can expect to work between 30-40 hours weekly.

It’s a full schedule, but it’ll zip by faster than that empanada you just inhaled!

Cultural Excursions

Wondering what you’re going to do with your precious free time? We’re glad you asked. We know your adventure bucket list is long, but make sure you tack these recommendations from past TEFL interns in Argentina towards the top!

Neighborhood

Hip, working-class La Boca & it’s multi-colored walkway is a must-see barrio for street art enthusiasts. The 90s live on here. Be sure to stick to side streets!

Food

Life for TEFL teachers in Argentina is sweet thanks to dulce de leche. A far cry from your fave ice cream, the real deal is as cultural as it is delicious.

Activity

Go wild at La Bombonera, the local football stadium. Fireworks, insults, fan fervor, choripán. You’ll be screaming footy chants alongside the locals in no time!

Allowance

Allowance

Your monthly stipend up to USD $650~$900 will cover some basic living essentials but you should budget spending money for your social life, travel and excursions during your time.

The cost of living outside of the metropolitan areas of Argentina is reasonable, especially in comparison to big European cities.

We recommend that you bring enough savings for your first 8 weeks of living expenses and housing in Argentina.

Up to USD $650~$900 (€575~€800/£500~£700) Per Month

Getting there

All qualified applicants will fly into Buenos Aires International Airport (Ezeiza International Airport). Airport pickup is available for US$85.
