TESOL: Using Songs with Adult Learners

Teaching English with SongsWhy teach English with songs? Songs are an excellent tool for learning English while having fun. They can be used to learn or practice the target language in a motivating and enjoyable way.

Don’t Pay For Recruitment Services

It has come to our attention that some graduates are looking at expensive recruitment services in Argentina. This company is charging $1,300 to help teachers find a job for the school year that starts in March 2012.

In order to get a job anywhere in Latin America, you have to go there and apply in person, so we understand how some people think that paying some kind of fee for recruitment service may be justified, but $1,300 is an obscene amount. Reputable recruiters charge the schools for finding qualified teachers and if you are worried about getting a job, $1,300  pays for 3 months of rent in Latin America.

Native-speakers who hold a university degree and a reputable TESOL certificate can easily compete for a position. You just have to consider that the hiring season varies a lot throughout Latin America, so go there when it’s easiest to find a job. If you have any questions, always feel free to contact us.
