El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America but also the most densely populated. With its tropical climate and beautiful scenery, El Salvador is the ideal destination for teachers interested in nature as the country is rich in endangered species and wildlife. El Salvador also lies on the Pacific Ring of Fire, which may or may not be a deterrent from living in the country.

Although it is a country still under development, increasing industrialization means that English is rapidly growing as a business language and in importance in El Salvador. El Salvador is also a popular tourist destination, which is another reason why it is important for citizens to become bilingual (the official language is Castilian). What this means is that the demand for English teachers is growing, and job opportunities are available!
