Hay
I'm planning on traveling to Colmbia in the next four weeks. I have been teaching in Korea for the past six months and in thailand for a year and a half before that. I have no degree and just a 28 hour uk tefl course (which i know menas nothing). But i do have the 2 years experience????
will this help?
What type of work can I expect to get?
Whats the cost of living like???
Is there work every where or do i have to stick to the major cities???

All help and suggestions welcome

Cheers

With no degree and no CELTA-equivalent certification, itīll be hard to find a job that will get you a visa. You shouldnīt have a problem finding a job working under the table at a language institute in Bogotá...donīt know about the other cities. Under the table language institute jobs are easy to find, even if you donīt have experience or certification, but I suppose your experience might make it even easier. Donīt expect to be paid more for your experience though. If I donīt travel, I usually get by on 1,200,000 pesos per month, which is approximately a normal montly salary at an institute if youīre working 15 hours per week.

I would take a course in Spanish, if you don't know the lingo. I've heard of people finding jobs under the table, but you may not get paid much.
