An incredible backdrop for your next adventure, living and working in Argentina as an ESL teacher is *just* the added HUZZAH your resume/CV needs. Join us next semester for a 7.5 month internship!

Your Trip Itinerary

Day 1

Getting there

Travel to Buenos Aires International Airport (Ezeiza International Airport). You’ll either take a cab (or book an Uber) from the airport or take the bus called Manuel Tienda Leon.

Day 2-29

TEFL training & orientation

Full orientation and TEFL training will be the focus of your first month in Buenos Aires, with additional time budgeted according to Covid-19 requirements.

Currently Argentina has no quarantine requirement for travelers who are vaccinated against COVID-19, and is operating a 7-10 day self-isolation quarantine policy (in accommodation of your choice) for travelers who are not COVID-19 vaccinated.

Your teacher training classes run Monday through Friday; and depending on your training group you will typically have lessons from 9am until 2pm or 3pm until 8pm, leaving plenty of time for class prep AND exploring the city. Your final week of training includes a professional development day where you’ll work on your résumé and meet employers from teaching placement schools.

This is an action packed four weeks. Get ready to share lunch breaks with new friends where you’ll be challenged to bring snacks from your home country (or cook a favorite dish), take a class trip to Tigre island and don’t forget to say Salud while sampling the local birra.

Day 30-226

Your teaching experience

It’s time to get into the classroom! You’ll interview with a range of hand-picked schools after the employer’s showcase and professional development day which will determine your school placement. Typically you’ll start teaching one to two weeks after graduating from your TEFL course.

You’ll be confident after already completing your four week classroom TEFL training including 10 hours of observed teaching practice at local schools (or online), with real ESL learners. Plus you’ll have had time to dive into your free online Spanish lessons, helping you to feel more like a local.

You’ll be teaching learners ranging in age from young learners to adults with mixed English ability, giving you an incredible first-time teaching experience. You can expect around 20-25 hours of hands-on teaching per week, plus some time to plan lessons following the in-house curriculum.

Your goal will be focused on conversational English practice, helping your eager students to feel confident as they develop their skills. You’ll be able to ask advice from local teaching colleagues but don’t forget to bring your own creativity and ideas into the classroom, this is your chance to shine!

On days off and your salary to enjoy, you will have a long list of sightseeing and travel plans. Master this local colectivos (public buses), find the best plazas for late night milongas, and make it to a Boca Juniors’ match (hint: don’t wear red and white). Prepare to check off a few amazing bucket list items!

Day 227

After your internship

Congratulations, you did it! Make sure to celebrate this achievement. It’s time to decide if you’d like to see more of Argentina, traveling or teaching (or both).

You might decide to extend your stay in Buenos Aires and teach for longer – and schools will love you for it. The possibilities are endless for you now as a confident and experienced TEFL teacher.
