Teaching in China has been great – not only is the job rewarding but my schedule has allowed me to work on other projects and see a good bit of the country.
About Teaching English in Mexico
As one of the most beautiful and culturally rich places in the world, it should be no surprise that thousands of English speakers flock to Mexico every year in order to teach English abroad. Filled with an abundance of career opportunities, it’s easy to land a job or even get trained upon arrival to teach English in Mexico.
Positions are diverse and range from teaching second-graders basic phonetics to explaining conversational English to adult employees – all you need is an FM3 visa which provides twelve months of access to this gorgeous country. Also, while most people will get their first jobs with a private school or university, it’s quite possible to supplement your teaching income with private tutoring lessons.
Mexico has a rich culture and no shortage of students who are eager to learn. You’ll be able to learn more about the local history and heritage from the students living there, not to mention the language-learning opportunities you’ll have yourself! Even if you aren’t fluent in Spanish, there are still ample job opportunities — and immersion is the best way to learn a language.
All you need to obtain your visa is a TEFL certification and a job offer. Many schools will hire you without a bachelor’s degree as long as you have your TEFL certificate, although higher-paying jobs will require a university degree.
Teaching abroad in Mexico is a life-changing experience and an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed!
