WHY TAKE A TESOL TEFL Course in Bogota

Bogota is a vibrant city, full of fascinating attractions, with picturesque old neighborhoods, beautiful buildings and public squares surrounded by greenery, a combination that makes evident the all evolving nature of the city and the many epochs it has seen. Through its streets you can see both splendid facades of colonial architecture, and modern skyscrapers. Bogotá boasts of being a cultural gem, both for Colombia and for all of Latin America, which is confirmed by its large number of museums and its incessant intellectual activity. Our TEFL students will have the opportunity to explore the different sights and attractions the city has to offer. Besides being a cultural hub for Latin America, Bogotá is also known for its night life, with many places catering to different publics.

Among the most interesting places to visit while you get your TEFL certificate in Bogotá, you can find:

Barrio La Candelaria, cultural heart of the city
La Candelaria was one of the first settlements in the city, where the Plaza Mayor de Santafé de Bogotá was built almost five hundred years ago. Its colonial architecture has been kept almost intact over the years, so you will see beautiful old houses, carved wooden gates, wrought iron balconies and paved alleys meticulously maintained to this day.

Museum of Botero

The largest collection of paintings and sculptures of the award-winning plastic artist Fernando Botero, a proudly Colombian character whose pieces are famous for the robust figures represented in them. This collection is composed of 123 of his works, as well as a private collection with works by Picasso, Dalí, Matisse, Monet, Renoir and Chagall.

Tequendama Falls

This famous waterfall is a beautiful natural attraction located just 30 kilometers from the historic center of Bogotá. It occurs after the Bogotá River crosses the center of the country and reaches this wooded area, with water dropping from a height of 157 meters.

    Salaries for English teachers in Colombia can vary depending on qualifications, experience, location, and type of institution. As of my last update, a typical salary range for English teachers in Colombia could be anywhere from $500 to $1,500 USD per month.

  • Experience: Some employers may prefer candidates with prior teaching experience, although it’s not always required, especially for entry-level positions.
  • Work Visa: Non-Colombian citizens will need a work visa to legally teach in Colombia. Some employers may assist with the visa process.

  • Language Proficiency: While fluency in Spanish may not always be required for teaching English, it can be beneficial for daily life and communication with students.
  • Cultural Adaptation: Adjusting to life in Colombia, including its culture and customs, is essential for a fulfilling experience.

    Before accepting any job offer, it’s advisable to research the specific institution, read reviews from past employees, and consider factors such as location, cost of living, and overall job satisfaction.
