Teach English in Beautiful Costa Rica!

Teach English in Beautiful Costa Rica!

Would you like to teach English near the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica in a traditional,medium-sized town? Would you like to be able to walk to work and take a bus on the weekends to nearby volcanoes, waterfalls, national parks, and beaches? Instituto Estelar Bilinge is located in Liberia, which has an international airport, is warm year-round, and is an ideal setting for improving your Spanish, volunteering in the community, and gaining
valuable teaching and living abroad experience.

 

Our English teachers enjoy the following benefits:

-Assistance with a work visa

-Health Insurance: 10.34% is deducted from each paycheck, and this 
 covers health insurance, taxes, and retirement (it is like social security). 

-Free furnished housing in a shared living space. Some teachers share 
 rooms and some have private rooms. The teacher houses have 3-4 people 
 in each, and they all have Internet, Cable TV, utilities, and basic furniture 
 supplied.

-Paid vacation days (1 day for every month worked): these days cannot be 
 taken until a teacher completes the first three months of work.

-A yearly bonus called Aguinaldo paid in December: this is calculated by 
 taking the total earnings for the year (before taxes are deducted) and 
 dividing them by 12.

-Assistance with opening a local bank account.

-Paid initial training, a free mentor program for new teachers, and ongoing 
 support and training throughout the year.

-Sundays and Mondays are free: teachers work Tuesday through Saturday, 
 teaching the same group courses each week with some possible variations 
 of private classes.

-English teachers have access to weekly 1-hour free Spanish group classes 
 for teachers and our Immersion Spanish courses (20 hours of class in 
 one week). 

-Several opportunities each week to volunteer in the community and make 
 a difference. One such opportunity is Club A, a non-profit that helps 
 underprivileged kids in a neighborhood just outside of Liberia. 

-Living in Guanacaste where it is always sunny and warm. We do not 
 receive nearly the amount of rainfall as other parts of Costa Rica. 
 Gorgeous beaches are accessible by public buses and only 40-90 minutes 
 away. Liberia is not a touristy town, so you will practice your Spanish and 
 integrate with the locals. You can walk everywhere, but having a bike is 
 helpful. The international airport is 10 minutes outside of town.
