It can be a little confusing at times considering when the best time of year is to seek TEFL employment in Latin America. Many of us northeneres forget that the southern hemisphere experiences different seasons.

Generally speaking, countries in Central and North America (Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama, etc) run an academic year that is similar to Canada, the US, and the UK, starting in late August or early September. Jobs open in abundance during these times, though you'll still find opening year-round.

Countries in South America (Chile, Brazil, Argentina, etc) generally see openings for late February and early March, corresponding with the start of the southern hemisphere autumn semester. Not all countries follow the same system however, and year-round openings are common.

It pays to know your geography! Wink
