Speaking English is an absolute requirement for Mexican citizens who wish to advance in a professional field. Due to its close ties with the United States and Canada, many Mexican companies conduct a certain amount of their business in English. If you’ve decided to teach English in Mexico for a living, you can rest assured that you’ve chosen a profession that’s in high demand.
Teaching English in Mexico will give you the chance to experience firsthand the rich Mexican culture. Teachers typically live in the country for at least a year, and many choose to stay beyond that because Mexico is a truly beautiful place to live. Whether you’re teaching in a major metropolitan area or a small rural city, you’ll find the Mexican experience uniquely enlightening and enriching.
