About Chile
Do you want to live in a city that has a mixture of old and new and some of the best opportunities for teaching in Latin America?

National parks that contain some of the most beautiful and unspoiled places of the planet provide countless opportunities for the adventure traveller or nature lover.

Chile's capital city Santiago is centrally located at the foothills of the Andes mountains, with the Pacific Ocean, vineyards or ski resorts only 100km away. Santiago offers a blend of contrasts, old colonial and ultra modern, energizing street scenes and quiet parks, elegant shopping and street markets, exciting nightlife and romantic restaurants.
