Argentina – a land of flamboyance and elegance! You can dance the tango, or watch an intense game of futbol (soccer); indulge your craving for perfectly grilled steak at a friendly neighbourhood parrilla, or take a polo lesson from a professional polo player!
Now, myTEFL has teamed up with schools in Argentina to bring you an amazing internship experience! Complete our 120 hour professional course, and head out to stunning Argentina for a fun-filled 12 day Orientation program with EFL teachers and students from around the world. Get acquainted with the country, its culture, the school system, the language, and so much more.
After completing the Orientation, you will begin your paid teaching position. Hone your TEFL skills, and significantly enhance your resume with this valuable experience. Immerse yourself in true Argentinean culture, living with a local family in their home, learning Spanish, and enjoying delicious home-cooked meals. All this is included in our fabulous internship package.
This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to fully experience vibrant Argentina while teaching EFL, and earning some Pesos at the same time!
You will be met at Buenos Aires airport and transported directly to our spectacular country retreat/training area to the west of the city. Or, you might want to take a few days to explore Buenos Aires on your own before you join your ride to the Orientation program. Full board accommodation with delicious Argentinean home-style meals are included! Bring along your appetite!
Once settled in, you will begin your 8 Day Orientation program with other TEFL certified teachers from around the world.
The program includes a 2 Day Intensive Hands-on TEFL Workshop (a great complement to your online TEFL course), sessions introducing local family and work environment, and tons of fun activities related to Argentinean customs and culture!
This is a great time to practice your TEFL skills, to meet and mingle with other interns, have a blast, and get a taste of the local culture! Oh, did we mention the food?!?!
At the end of the Orientation, you will be transported to your new town where you will live with a local family, and teach English for the next four months! Your new family will pick you up, and take you home. Argentineans are very friendly, hospitable, and fun loving people. You will take all your meals with your host family, share a lovely ‘family’ experience, and make beautiful friendships and memories which will last a lifetime.
You will teach for approximately 20 hours per week, leaving you plenty of time to plan and reflect on your lessons, and work on improving your TEFL skills and abilities. In addition, you will receive about 4 hours of intensive Spanish lessons per week – and loads of opportunities to put them into practice!
Many of our placements will be in smaller areas that have rarely had native English speaking teachers! You have the opportunity to make a big impact on your students’ lives and careers!
In addition to accommodations, meals, and lessons, you will receive a basic stipend of 1600 Argentinean Pesos per month (about $100 USD) to help cover any expenses and incidentals you may incur.
Besides getting your 120 Hour TEFL professional certification, you will receive a letter of recommendation outlining the invaluable teaching experience you gain through the program. This will go a long way when applying for future teaching positions anywhere in the world. Many of our graduates choose to travel throughout Latin America, while some decide to stay on in Argentina and pick up a new TEFL position independently!
