Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Peru

ESL in Peru
TEFL in Peru

This is a guest post from Sharon over at TEFL-Tips. Her site is an excellent resource for anyone teaching ESL Abroad, or for those considering it as a career. Teaching ESL in Peru is something that I really have no idea about, so I was happy for her to write this post and offer us some helpful information and resources. Thanks Sharon and without further ado, here's all the goodness:

I started TEFLing in early 2003 in China. At that time, Dave's ESL Cafe was the end-all for TEFL information, especially  the forums which were particularly helpful. About a year and a half later, in the summer of 2004 I moved to Peru to teach at a university there. While many people had taught in China, few people had taught in Peru and I quickly became the go-to person for information about teaching English there.  I also joined the forum at Expat Peru and helped people to learn about Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Peru, as well as visa information.

I kept telling people the same information over and over and decided that the best thing to do would be to start a blog and then I could just link to it when people had questions. In early 2008, I started the Ultimate Peru List. Although I left Peru in early 2010, I still have ties there and I actually became a Peruvian citizen in 2009.

Here are some posts I recommend about teaching English in Peru:
