A mix of spectacular nature, incredible food, buzzing cities and the home of the tango – Argentina is undisputedly a uniquely charismatic destination, and arguably the most perfect place to start your TEFL adventure. World famous for its natural beauty, year-on-year Argentina has continued to attract qualified TEFL teachers to its shores as South America becomes the most desired destination for teaching English positions.
Before you go, you’ll have an application form to fill out, a video chat, submit all your documents and then you’ll be on your way to Argentina.
All qualified applicants will fly into Buenos Aires International Airport (Ezeiza International Airport) and enjoy a free transfer to the orientation venue.
If you are based in a public school during your internship, you can typically expect to teach around 30-35 students per class. Private school teachers will have a class size of about 20-25 students, and class sizes at an English institute will range from 15-20 students. Most placements will involve teaching groups of adults, adolescents and or younger learners.
Depending on the working scheme – A, B or C – your amount of working hours, teaching days and level of participation in the English immersion camps as a counsellor will vary. Whatever the working scheme, it is likely you will have a fixed syllabus to follow, and you will have a local co-teacher to assist you in most cases. You will also have weekly English tutorials with your host.
Please note final decision on placement is made by schools and so you must ultimately be flexible about your location.
Plus, with regular excursions you’ll be able to immerse yourself in a melting pot of different cultures from around the globe.
Argentina is the perfect fusion of chic city living and rugged natural beauty. The chattering café culture and celebration of food, fashion and football means there’s an attractive aspect of Argentine lifestyle for everyone – nature lovers in particular can’t afford to miss Patagonia and the mystic Andes. Plus, Argentina is ideally situated near other South American destinations such as Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia, so you can continue to explore in your free time.
Your monthly stipend of 1,200 Argentine Pesos (ARS) will cover some basic living expenses. The cost of living outside of the metropolitan areas of Argentina is reasonable, especially in comparison to big European cities. For socializing, excursions and any other living costs extra spending money of $300 – $500 USD will make your stay very comfortable.
The Argentina internship offers some places in smaller cities and towns, rather than the more well-known cities – the perfect chance to leave the beaten tourist trail and get under the skin of this amazing country. With free homestay room and board (plus three meals a day), applicants are free to enjoy fantastic adventures traveling around the region.
