Hi,

Thank you so much for all of your helpful information about teaching and living in Argentina! I've been reading through this forum and it seems that you have spent a lot time and effort helping people navigate through the maze of working in Argentina.
I wanted to ask you if you know anything about teaching English in a public or private school. I have a teaching credential from the US and I have a lot of teaching experience. Any information you have will be a huge help!

Thank you,

Lara

The questions you have posted are exactly the ones I have been wanting to ask. If you have any information regarding Argentina can you please let me know.

I am interested in teaching there for many reasons. I am part Argentinan and I know that I can also get my Argentinan citizenship which I'm not even sure is so beneficial. I have family that lives in B.A. which is a plus.

The only thing I am worried about is the pay and if I would be able to live and somewhat save and travel with it. Do you you know if any benefits are offered with a job there?

You get benefits in the public schools, I think being a citizen would help a lot for that type of job because you won't need a visa. They make about 1500 pesos a month, which isn't all that much. According to this:

According to this http://baexpats.org/culture/4303-public-state-school-teachers-salaries-ba.html

You would probably do better at some private or international schools, and I'm sure a lot of them have benefits, but I don't know much about them. Someone else should be able to answer these questions better, but I thought I would post something.

Would you be able to recommend a good institute for me in Peru? Which cities are you familiar with? i am currently living in San Juan, Argentina but want to leave the desert and opt for the forest. I would prefer not to live in Lima, or one of the larger cities but I will take what I can get. It appears to me that the problem is not finding an institute; but finding a decent one. In San Juan there are 8 or 9 but many of them appear to be very shady. Thank you!
