Buenos Aires - TEFL Course
The capital of the largest Spanish-speaking country on the continent, Buenos Aires is a bustling city of over 9 million people. Its French-style architecture, Italian heritage, and general cultural sophistication give it a distinctly elegant feel, earning it the nickname “The Paris of South America.” Add to that a vibrant populace, a nightlife that never stops, and shopping and dining galore, and it's hard to imagine a more enjoyable city than Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires continues to be one of our most popular TEFL course locations and there's no lack of reasons why. The city is renowned internationally for world-class soccer teams, thriving tango culture, scrumptious cuisine (especially beef), and, more recently, for amazingly affordable prices. It would take you a lifetime to experience the sights and sounds the city has to offer. But after getting certified to teach English in Argentina, you may just want to stick around and give it a try!
Our TEFL training center in Buenos Aires has excellent facilities in a historic part of town. There are two purpose-built classrooms just for the use of our TEFL classes, a comfortable work/study area for planning lessons, a small computer lab, as well as free WiFi. There is also a patio for coffee breaks and a terrace for the occasional asado (BBQ).
The training center is located in San Telmo, one of the characteristic and picturesque neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Within walking distance are the many restaurants, bars, and cafés that make San Telmo popular with tourists and locals alike. Also within walking distance is the famous Plaza Dorrego where you will always find some excitement! . For those who wish to venture further afield, there is excellent public transportation in the city including trains, subways, buses, and even ferries to nearby Uruguay.
Argentina boasts a highly literate population which places a premium on education-including high level English language instruction. Once among the wealthiest countries in South America, Argentina has suffered from a series of economic woes in recent years. That said, the good news is that since 2002 the economy has grown, poverty has declined, and the middle class has rebounded considerably. As the country forges ahead, more and more people are realizing the importance of-and are now able to afford-English language classes.
Almost half of Argentina's population lives in the province of Buenos Aires, and many of the nation's English teaching jobs can be found there. As a certified TEFL teacher in Buenos Aires, you will likely find the most work teaching English to professionals and business executives. However, you may also enjoy opportunities to tutor students studying for school and university exams, families preparing for a trip abroad, or others looking to improve their English skills.
