Hi

I was wondering if my lack of Spanish skills would make it hard for me to find a legit job in Santiago teaching English. I am just starting out with the language and certainly cannot give an interview in it. Are the decent, or even half - way decent employers expecting you to have a good command of Spanish?

Decent employers are more concerned that you have good command of English! Very Happy

You don't need to worry about not having Spanish skills as far as landing a job or performing in it. It should go without saying though that having Spanish skills makes life much easier outside the workplace and often in dealing with school administration.
