Would like to have some info on money made in other countries.
So I'll offer you what I know too...

Korea:
usually 1.7 to 2.5 for a standard contract. Per hour 20,000-60,000 usually.

Spain:
about 600 to 1000 Euros per month (but maybe more if you know the right people)

Colombia:
as low as US$4 to US$40 per hour (depending on situation/students) but this all depends on the economy (can't remember what it was in pesos)

Canada:
minimum wage-25 per hour (CDN) don't know about non per hour wages there

Anyone else know about wages anywhere in the world?

There is a legally-fixed minimum wage for language school teachers in Spain of 900 Euros a month, wit paid holidays and two extra months included. Most language schools only give you nine month contracts but you should still get the pro-rata pay for one month's vacation (that is three weeks) and the pro-ratad extra payments (that is six weeks).

If you don't get that you should go to the labour courts. You will find it better to join a union to get free representation before you start work. Also you should get full national insurance payments, and thus if you are an EU citizen when you are laid off for the summer you can choose to claim a minimum payment, or wait another year to claim 80% of pay./

These salaries are the legal minimum I may add, and if you work in a proper school - not language school - are considerably higher.

Private lessons obviously depend on location and your negotiating abiliiy.
