I´m currently teaching English in Cusco, Peru with my TEFL certification that I completed in March. I actually got hired while still in the course, so I would say finding a job is really easy, especially here in Cusco. The course work wasn´t hard for me personally although you should be prepared to do a lot of out of class work. The course ran from 9-4 every day. The course is expensive but worth it, but only if you are planning on actually using it. Some students wanted a vacation and that is not the right mind set to have. I don´t recommend using the school to coordinate housing as they will overcharge you a ton! I just used Airbnb, or you can also stay in a hostel here as a lot of other students did. When entering Peru specifically, at the airport you will want to ask the immigration officer for the max amount of time allowed (which is currently 6 months). If looking to stay and work in Cusco, I highly recommend it. The city is tranquil, gorgeous, and the people are friendly. There is also a ton to do especially if you enjoy the outdoors.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
