Teaching English in Mexico
Due to the North American Free Trade Agreement, close proximity to the United States, and a keen knowledge that affinity through effective communications can bring higher understanding; the need for English language and culture has established itself well in Mexico. This is typically a highly interactive society. Prospects for teaching opportunities abound in the cities of Guadalajara, and the capital Mexico City. It is possible to find work in some smaller remote communities; however, pay scale and resources will be considerably lower. Fully certified individuals can have a salary of $1,200 USD per month plus benefits. Work visas are possible to obtain and bigger companies may help to pay. Cost of living is fairly low especially outside Mexico City. Essentials such as food, transportation and housing usually only cost up to about 40% of earned wages. Close communicative relationships combined with respect are very important in business. Classes will vary according to structure of any given institution or private language school. The teacher may conduct instruction just for business purposes, for children, adults and also for conversation. Local people are considered very polite so the integration process is very easy and made even easier if the foreigner can learn some Spanish.
Traveling to Mexico
The currency is the Mexican Peso valued at approximately $18.3 to $1 US dollar. Recently the country has shown strong recovery from harder economic struggles. Mexico features an array of climates; tropical rainforests, volcanoes, snowy mountain tops, and famous white sandy beaches. Mexico City is one of the largest in the world; and is also the center of the country’s culture; it is a vital link for communication, industry and transportation. Mexico’s close proximity to the United States has been influential in several areas including migration, economic trade and culture. Mexican culture stems from a cohesive mix of native and Spanish colonialism. Religion plays an important role in the country and as is the case with all of Latin America, family is the number one priority. Many modern pastimes are the same as in westernized countries; however, soccer is the country’s most treasured sport. People are genial, humble, and are kind toward visitors. City life, although very colorful and interesting, does not draw in tourists to the country as do the sun and surf of the beaches.
