|I will be heading to Bogota in May or June:
1. I'm a native speaker of English,
2. I've got a BA in English from a US university,
3. And I've never taught ESL before.
What kind of pay rate in Colombian Peso's should I realistically expect to get teaching ESL at a language institute?
Hi end, low end -- ballpark estimate numbers in COP are good.
Bearing in mind I need to be able to live off what I earn doing this, that I'm absolutely not expecting an upper middle class standard of existence, and I want to do this in Bogota for at least a year.
And does anybody live off this working 30 to 35 hours a week?
Thanks in advance.
