I just returned from SP to my current home in Purgatory. Fortunately it wasn't as hot as I expected it to be (only 112F). And I was qutie enthused to find the latest issue of L&A waiting for me. After reading Liz Tonosi's article in this months L&A entitled "Cruising & Teaching around the World" I thought maybe this could apply to makin a living in SP???
I promptly looked into the TESL/TEFL certifications and it looks quite straighforward. (TESL=Teaching English as a Second Language)
While I do not have fromal teaching credentials I do have a great deal of experience leading training classes teaching employees to operate new computer systems as well as one on one instruction. I enjoy teaching.
Here is the question to those of you who have been out there for a while: Is there really enough demand for TESL instructors out there that I could rely on the work to put beans on the table?
What do you think?

PS: Yes, I know that English IS the official language. However I do also know that "No Engles" is a common phrase.
If you came to SP surly you noticed most people speak english or something pretty close. I have met some elderly folks who do not, but when you get to be 80,you ask you grandkids. Sorry you need a new idea. We could use a specialty bread bakery, can you bake?
