I'm planning on spending a year in SA beginning in January 2009. Was originally hoping to just travel but my budget will require that I work to make the trip feasible.
I will be TEFL certified but do not want to commit to any jobs before arriving. I want to make sure I like the place and situation where I will be staying for an extended period of time. Can anyone give me feedback on finding English teaching jobs upon arrival?
Also any recommendations on places to stay for approx. 3 months and teach? Hopefully either in Ecuador, Peru, Chile or Bolivia. Would love to be in a town near the beach with good surfing if possible but I'm flexible if you have better suggestions. My goal is to live in a few different places for a few months each and travel in the interim.
