Latin America is a distant destination that many will visit, but only a few will actually get the chance to live in this exotic paradise. The casual lifestyle and low cost of living means that while you may not save a lot while working here, your salary will go a long way.
Imagine only working 25 hours a week and still being able to go out to dinner, go dancing at a disco, listen to a live concert, or even dash off to another city over the weekend. Less teaching hours mean that you'll have plenty of time to explore the city, take language classes, volunteer, or just relax. Learn more about teaching in Latin America in the country by country FAQ and the FAQ Latin America.
The good news is that through emails, you can make a good first impression. Make sure that your cover letter is tailored to the job. Don't just send out mass emails. You need to tailor your CV to teaching. And make sure that you come across in a professional matter, including in your spelling and punctuation. In your email, mention when you will be arriving and ask for an interview. Even if they don't respond. Be sure to follow up once you arrive, go to the institute and ask for an interview.
