If you are headed for Peru, you’ll find that you’re in for a warm welcome. You’ll also experience some of the most spectacular and varied scenery in South America.
There is an enormous demand to learn English so teaching work is plentiful, provided you are flexible in your approach. This means that you may have to travel to Peru to secure work and be prepared to make up a full timetable by teaching in various locations, at least at first. The benefits are unlikely to be financial although you should be able to live well by local standards. It is the climate, the culture and the incredible friendliness of the people that will make teaching here such a rewarding experience.
You may wish to start your search away from the capital and larger cities as there is more competition for work here. So if you are prepared to take the plunge into the Peruvian way of life, there has never been a better time!
