  • Description

    Description

    We are a language school situated in Northern Chilean Patagonia. Our goal is to provide cultural exchange between the teachers, travelers and our students. Our model is based around teaching in small sized classes with a semi-flexible curriculum that is focused on the development of communication and interaction skills. We approach English and/or Spanish grammar as something alive and continuously evolving.

    We will only consider native English speakers, fluency in Spanish is not a requirement, but you must be willing to learn and to communicate with people that only speaks Spanish. Unfortunately, due to the cultural differences in South America, former vegan teachers have struggled to accommodate their lifestyle here, you might bear that in mind when applying. We also will not be accepting applications from couples.

    Because of the COVID pandemic we have switched to online classes, and with the travel restrictions the school have struggled to complete the teacher staff. We are in need of a teacher fluent in English to complete the school year from October 1st upto December 18th (we can adapt the lenght of the stay if needed).
    We provide our teachers with computers, syllabus and other teaching materials and resources.
