The average teaching salary is between 800 USD – 1200 USD, with living costs around about the same. You can make more or less depending on how many teaching hours you decide to do. Argentina is a country on the rebound from economic woes of recent years, making it a remarkably affordable place to live, and a highly literate populace, and competitive middle class means there’s no shortage of people looking to improve their English language skills. Argentines understand the importance of education and how key it is to rebuilding their prosperity and with TEFL Heaven you could be at the forefront of it!

To be able to receive a guarantee of a job you need to be a native English speaker, but you do not need to have a bachelors degree. Most jobs are also actually in Buenos Aires, but other locations are available.

Buenos Aires embodies our brand in that it is a cultural paradise. Buenos Aires is overflowing with bars and restaurants to recline in after a days TEFL training with your new found friends.

Do you like to Tango? If so, this city has many places to practice as a beginner or expert. Many popular tourist sites can be seen at the historical core of Buenos Aires, Plaza de Mayo; it was also the site of the 1810 revolution which birthed Argentina itself.

Book a guided tour to get your bearings and delve into the heritage of the city. Shop, dine and dance the night away in a tango club. Buenos Aires is a modern city – you can pretty much do anything here that you can in the other large cities of the world, and it’s very westernised.


The original European settlers believed the country was laced with silver, and christened the country “Argentina” from the Latin word for silver “Argentum”.  Whilst this isn’t the case, it’s clear from Argentina’s recent tourism boom there are plenty of other treasures to be discovered. A plethora of natural beauties from snow capped mountains, to vast wet lands, a paradise to some of Argentina’s most amazing plants and animals – complimented by passionate people with a proud history.

The 8th largest country in the world by area, but home to as little as 41 million people, concentrated in Argentina’s large cities in the east; the country can be characterised by its awesome landscapes. The rugged topography of the Andes form a natural border with Chile in the west, the vast southern plateau of Patagonia divides glaciers in the south with mountainous jungle to the north.

As you would expect for a country spanning 34˚ in latitude the climate of Argentina varies drastically. Subtropical Yungas regions in the northeast are very hot and humid, northern mountainous regions are generally dry with great temperature fluctuations, becoming alpine further south, and sub polar at the extreme. However, don’t fret; the most populated areas are generally temperate.


If you asked the average Argentine what four things they couldn’t live without, they might very well say football, coffee, beef and tango, if they were being incredibly stereotypical. The cities have a distinct European flavour evident in the architecture, fashion and relaxed social attitudes. Rural areas embrace the Gaucho “cowboy” culture which emphasises the importance of freedom and self-reliance.


Argentina serves up something for everyone. Nature lovers can catch a glimpse of elephant seals and southern right whales in the Valdes Peninsula nature reserve or gaze in ore at the spectacular Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian boarder. Budding explorers can trek in the foothills of Cerro Aconcagua the highest point in the Americas at just shy of seven thousand metres, or take a cruise to Antarctica from Ushuaia, the world’s most southern city. Culturephiles can investigate the ancient Inca and colonial heritage, or simply kick back at more familiar beach resort.


  • The Malbec wine produced in the province of Mendoza is considered by some to be the world’s finest.
  • The country consumers more beef per capita than any other.
  • Argentina had 5 different presidents over a period of just 10 days in 2001.
  • Political parties have their own brands of beer.
  • It’s no exaggeration to say football is a religion, fans of retired football superstar Diego Maradona founded a religion dedicated to him.
