Teaching English in Chile: At a Glance
Sandwiched between the Andes mountains to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west, Chile has everything to offer an adventurous English teacher. Chile is comprised of a range of climates with the world's driest desert (the Atacama) in the north, glacial fields in the east and south east, as well as volcanoes, lush forests, and grazing lands in the southern regions - all are accessible in the many national parks.

More adventurous teachers might enjoy the many incredible ski resorts in the Chilean Andes, which boasts the best snow in the Southern Hemisphere; four of the top resorts are located right outside the Chilean capital of Santiago. If traveling south of the capital, keep in mind that food portions only get bigger! Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean is also one of the top tourist destinations in the region.
