Living and Teaching English in Venezuela - Habits, Customs & Curiosities

As one of South America’s lesser known countries among foreign English language teachers, Venezuela offers a great opportunity to get away from the crowded teaching markets found elsewhere on the continent.

The main center for teaching jobs is in the capital city, Caracas, although a lesser number can also be found in other areas.

Those who find work in Venezuela have plenty of things to look forward to during their time away from the classroom as there are many exotic beach resorts to enjoy, as well as plenty of natural wonders including Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world.
