TEFL Jobs in Bulgaria: Located at the crossroads of various different cultures, Bulgaria is one of the most fascinating countries in Europe. It’s also one of the most beautiful – home to no less than nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

TEFL Jobs in Spain: Very popular as a TEFL destination, especially with Brits looking for a less stressful lifestyle, Spain is actually a very mixed bag. Some teachers speak of great weather, lovely beaches, nice people and a reasonable salary. The capital, Madrid, is home to the Royal Palace and singular Prado museum, housing works by European masters, and Segovia to the north has a fairy-tale medieval castle and Roman aqueduct. Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona, is defined by Antoni Gaudí’s quirky modernist architecture, including the Sagrada Família basilica.

TEFL Jobs in Argentina: The level of demand for native speakers in Argentina is reasonably high. Unfortunately, TEFL salaries are relatively low and due to moderate living costs you certainly won’t be able to save much, if at all. As in most Latin American countries the students are lively and sociable and therefore a pleasure to teach. Unfortunately non-Argentinians are not allowed to teach in public (state) schools so you are limited to language centres and the few bilingual schools that exist. There is a high turnover of staff at language centres which says a great deal about the pros and cons.

Although the winters can be difficult for some, in such a huge country it is no surprise that there are some incredibly beautiful places to visit. The far east is particularly fascinating. Do your homework before signing any contracts because the quality of employers, the salary and the benefits all vary dramatically.

TEFL Jobs in Aruba: We have noticed a steadily increasing demand for TEFL instructors in Aruba and the island is ready to welcome visitors and foreign workers alike. While the monthly pay for ESL teachers is not very high, the benefits of living in this island paradise stand out on their own. The most popular island in the Dutch Caribbean, Aruba draws droves of honeymooners and sun worshippers to its sandy shores. This small, 20-mile long island dances to salsa, dines on red snapper, gambles in glitzy casinos, and surfs and sunbathes year-round.
