I am a 49-year old female that is considering a career change. I am currently working as a computer help-desk analyst at a computer services company.

I have a boyfriend who is Hispanic who was born in Panama and has lived in Colombia and Honduras. He is 47 and may have to leave the US and go back sometime in the next year or two. I will probably go back with him when he goes. I know a little bit of Spanish which I learned both a little at a time and by going to Spanish language school in Guatemala.

I am teaching him to speak English and recently decided to volunteer with Literacy Advance her in Houston to gain some teaching (tutoring) skills. I previously have tutored students in math when I was in college for several semesters.

We are considering going to Bogota so I can get my CELTA certification and then teach in Colombia if I get a job there or maybe Panama, Venezuela or Argentina. We might consider Honduras since he owns a house in Honduras but I have heard that the pay there might not be as good. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions such as the best time to go.

good plan. volunteering for a year and then doing the celta in colombia was exactly how i did it.

of the four countries you mentioned, Colombia i think will be the easiest to do long term...unless you get married to to your Panamanian boyfriend and you can get a long term visa through that.
