I have taught in 13 different countries and I am toying with the idea of coming to Peru and teaching. Is Lima that great of a place to live? How safe is it? Can you get Business English classes on a Freelance basis?Ii know I want to olive in the Miraflores area. Any information or opinions would be appreciated. Don't hold back.... Tell me how you really feel.... Smile

Where have you taught?
For how long?
What are your quals?
Do you care about visas becuase most institues won't get you one and will hav eyou work on a tourist visa.
Is money an issue?
What are you looking for in a country?

As for being the BEST country, everyone has a different opinion.

I have been teaching since 1979 in Ecuador, Costa Rica, Panama, Chile, Ukraine, Russia, Slovakia, India, Kazakhstan, Oman, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. The days of "Let me come pay you to teach and be quaint" are long gone.
A friend who is currently there tells me when he quotes $50US an hour that corporations are not balking.
So it goes from there.

That's the exception rather than the rule. Most places will pay around 10 an hour.

Limaīs cool if you like big cities and donīt mind traffic. Iīm not a fan of miraflores but itīs pretty and thatīs where most of the foreigners live.

You can get robbed, but just donīt be stupid. It depends on what neighborhood youīre in. I like Lima, you always see people dancing in the park and people are pretty warm. Itīs its own place like any city I guess.

I would say 20 dollars an hour is the high end for pay. Freelance basis is easy but it takes a while to get set up and itīs not steady like working at a school.
