The Uruguayan American School (UAS) is a private college preparatory school enrolling approximately 320 international and host country students in Nursery through Grade 12. We have occasional openings for TEFL qualified teachers, particularly if you have other teaching skills such as music or sports. Founded over 57 years ago, UAS caters to both international and Uruguayan families by providing an international curriculum taught entirely in English and a Uruguayan curriculum for students who plan to attend a university in South America.

The UAS campus is located in the residential suburb of Carrasco, in Montevideo. It is approximately three blocks from the Portones Shopping Mall and behind the LATU (Laboratorio Tecnológico del Uruguay).

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


wow this was quite a complicated and enlightening unit! I learned a lot about pronunciation, phonology, and I also learned a lot of big words that I was previously unaware of! I think I will definitely need to look over this unit a few more times in the future. You don't normally think about things like intonation, stress etc being involved with teaching English. This was difficult!This was a very short lesson. It was a review for things I have previously learned in either elementary school, or middle school, or during high school. I think it is strange to answer this type of question on such a black and white subject like this before receiving the the results of my test. I think I grasp the concepts listed but will not know for sure until after I press submit.
