Top 6 Destinations for BridgeTEFL Students

< Back to the TEFL News

Sometimes it can be hard to decide where to take your TEFL course and begin your new career as an English teacher. It’s a big decision, but you can take comfort knowing that thousands of people have faced the same challenge. In fact, knowing the popular places where people have been taking their TEFL courses may help you decide for yourself, so here’s the top 6 TEFL destinations where Bridge students got certified in the last year.

1./2. Argentina and Chile

11.5% of our students went to each of these countries.

3. Brazil

9.6% of our students couldn’t resist the temptation of Rio de Janeiro and Ipanema Beach.

4. Peru

Though they all may not have done it, 6.8% of students were close enough to visit Machu Picchu.

5. Colombia and Costa Rica

5.5% of our students took a course in each country.

Why these places? Different factors go into choosing TEFL destinations, but Latin America appeals to people who want to learn Spanish, hope to stay close to home while teaching abroad, or are enamored with its unique histories and cultures.
