in Santiago, Chile
Get TEFL certified, get hired, and live in Chile’s vibrant capital!
The capital of Chile, Santiago is nestled in a valley at the foot of the picturesque Andes. The city of six million residents has a mild, Mediterranean climate and is centrally located, making it the perfect base from which to explore. In less than two hours in either direction, you can be strolling on the coast of the Pacific Ocean or skiing in the snowcapped Andes.
Chile boasts one of the most stable economies in South America. Santiago’s dependable financial system, modern facilities and general receptivity to foreigners makes it a great place to get TEFL certified—and to teach English.
TEFL Jobs in Chile
Nowhere in Chile is the need for English more apparent than in the business world. Prime sources of English language instruction jobs in Chile are private or group classes for company employees and executives.
Because Santiago is Chile’s economic, political, and cultural center, the majority of English teaching positions will be found in and around the capital. However, teaching jobs are available nationwide, ranging from the northern cities of Arica and Iquique to the central coastal towns of Viña del Mar and Valparaiso, to Concepcion, Valdivia, and Puerto Montt further south.
For teachers interested in working in Chile, Bridge recommends taking the IDELT course in Santiago to gain relevant teaching practice and the opportunity to apply and interview for jobs in-person.
