Known as the land of lakes and volcanoes, Nicaragua provides a beautiful and exciting tropical environment in which to teach English. Speaking English is an economically vital skill for Nicaraguan citizens, who are increasingly required to communicate in English. Thus, most qualified teachers looking to teach English are able to find openings.

Teachers will immediately feel welcomed by the warm Nicaraguan hospitality, and other Central American countries are not far, allowing teachers the ability to easily explore the rest of Central America. In Nicaragua, teachers will provide an enriching educational experience to students while discovering a colorful culture and remarkably unique country.
