The program takes approximately 60-120 hours of training over a three to four week period. Once you’ve completed the program, you can be placed in a variety of countries to work as an English teacher. One popular destination for teaching is the Central American country of El Salvador.
El Salvador is a democratic country with a developing economy. Tourism facilities are not fully developed. The capital is San Salvador, accessible by El Salvador's International Airport at Comalapa. The U.S. Dollar is the primary currency in El Salvador and the economy is fully dollarized. Americans traveling with U.S. Dollars should not exchange them for Colones.
