m2r Education are hiring ESL Teachers to work in Bogotá, Soacha, Mosquera, Medellín, Manizales and Villavicencio, Colombia. Ongoing hiring!

Anyone interested in beginning or furthering their ESL teaching career abroad should consider teaching English in Colombia. The country is an economical destination with a plentiful supply of teaching jobs. The Colombian government also places strong focus on bilingual education making Colombia a great hub for TEFL teachers.

Colombia is the nation of magical realism - it's capital city of Bogota offers a rich array of art, culture and cuisine. The coffee is out of this world and the street art will leave you speechless! Colombia is also a hugely diverse country and home to the second largest population of Spanish speakers in the world. The country is still relatively undiscovered so now is the perfect time to go and see Colombia for yourself.

An ESL teacher's monthly compensation in Colombia ranges from $700 to $1,000 USD, depending on the employment and level of experience. A housing allowance, airfare, health insurance, and other benefits are generally included in private school jobs. It should be noted that a language institution may pay a lower income without providing any of these additional perks.

The startup expenditures for English teachers in Colombia will be between $1,000 and $1,600 USD. You'll need to budget for expenses such as housing, transportation, groceries, and setting up your new local phone number on arrival.
