Teaching English and Starting a small guest house in Bolivia
by Jeff Cannella
(Jeddah, Saudi Arabia)
I am interested in coming to Bolivia to look into the English teaching market and to possibly buy an old colonial house to start a guesthouse further down the line. I am 46, have an MA in TESOL, no k-12 public school qualifications though, and nearly 18 years teaching experience to adults and university students. With my background what are my job options, what cities are best to job hunt and what kind of salaries can I expect? As for the guesthouse idea I am interested in buying a small colonial house to run as both my home and guesthouse business. Any information on how I can buy such homes and their prices ranges would also be appreciated.
