  • 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 offer you a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in South America, to share your life experience with Chilean people, to get to know their traditions and customs, and finally, to be a part of a great and unforgettable adventure combining working and exploring breathtaking Chilean landscapes painted with volcanoes and lakes.

    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.
