Happy TEFL! (Video)

Undecided about your next TEFL / TESOL destination? Take a look at the Happy Planet Index (HPI), an alternative economic index to GDP, which measures countries’ overall well-being, including health and happiness.

At the top of the list is Costa Rica, a country that enjoys both a free market economy and responsible government.  Many of our TESOL certificate graduates go to Costa Rica because there are many job opportunities, it’s close to home for US and Canadian teachers, and teachers can spend their weekends visiting paradisaical beaches, waterfalls, and rain forests. Furthermore, the people are very friendly and the food is amazing!

Vietnam ranks in second position, mainly due to the low ecological footprint, which is 1.39 hectares per capita. Being one of the East Asian Tigers, Vietnam’s low ecological footprint shows the great level of efficiency and productivity that the country has achieved.  As in Costa Rica, Vietnam enjoys beautiful natural places and the people are very nice. This wonderful country is also one of the top TESOL destinations chosen by our graduates!

Other countries from the list of top TESOL destinations are Argentina, which ranks number 17 in the HPI, Chile (19-HPI), and Thailand (20-HPI). Countries like Japan (45-HPI) and Germany (46-HPI) have large and professionally run TESOL industries. Respectively, ESL teachers enjoy the highest standard of living in all of East Asia and Europe, but it is interesting to see that these rich countries rank lower in the Happy Planet Index than many other developing countries.

Learn more about the Happy Planet Index! Watch this video or search Happy Planet Index on Wikipedia. The HPI is a great topic for a class discussion and there are plenty of authentic materials that qualified TESOL teachers can use in their ESL classroom!

20+ New TESOL Jobs in Latin America!

Today we posted 20+ new TESOL jobs from Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, and Mexico! Access the job board from your student account. If you completed your TESOL course at OnTESOL and your account is no longer active, contact us via the inquiry form to receive access to the job ads.

Finding a teaching job in Latin America is more difficult than in other regions because few language schools advertise new positions on TESOL job boards and even fewer schools pay recruitment agencies to find qualified teachers for them. Moreover, most language schools from Latin America prefer to hire teachers who have already gone through the trouble and expense of getting to the country.

In an effort to help our TESOL graduates find jobs quicker in Latin America, OnTESOL hired a new HR specialist to assemble more resources and job ads from the region.

Feel free to contact us at any time for more information and resources!
