Taking the CELTA in MEXICO
Mexico is an ideal place to take the Cambridge CELTA and get stuck into TEFL. The demand for learning English is high and there are plenty of EFL schools who are looking to hire well-qualified teachers. The practicalities of doing the CELTA in Mexico are that the cost of living is low, people are generally very welcoming, and there is plenty of sunshine!
English is an important language in Mexico due to the country’s proximity to the USA, so TEFL jobs are in abundance. Teaching English in Mexico is incredibly rewarding as adults and children alike are learning the language to achieve dreams and ambitions. Having the CELTA will ensure you are able to work at quality schools – in Mexico or elsewhere. It is worth noting that while having a degree is not an essential requirement for teaching English in Mexico, it is certainly preferred.

CELTA in Mexico City
IH Mexico City is in the capital of the country and is packed full of art and culture with many museums, including the National Museum of Anthropology (situated in the glorious Chapultepec Forest), Frida Kahlo Museum, and Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC). If, while doing your CELTA in Mexico City, you don’t get a chance to visit, then keep your eyes peeled as you walk to the teacher training centre, as there is lots of art nouveau and art deco all around the different neighbourhoods.
It’s said that the best way to explore Mexico City is by bicycle thanks to recent government investment in many bike lanes.
