What do you know about Mexico?
Coming to Mexico to do your TEFL training and teaching is quite an experience. Today, there are many misconceptions about the country and the experience it has to offer. Let’s cover some of the basic features this country offers you as a new English teacher.
Despite the current complex international climate, the Mexican economy has been increasing at an average pace of 2.1% over the last decade. Responsible economic, financial, and commercial policies that aim to enhance the domestic market are the foundation of Mexico’s economic strength. To restructure the global value chain, Mexico’s economic growth policy prioritizes measures such as encouraging private investment in vital industries, expanding governmental investment, and fostering increased trade links with other countries.
Its exports make it the region’s leader, and Mexico is ranked as the world’s 15th-largest economy. Its nominal GDP is $9,946, and its real GDP is $1,269 billion. With $29.3 billion in FDI, Mexico is a rising economic powerhouse, ranking 19th in the world in terms of exports. Half of Mexico’s population is now considered middle class, with the wealthy making up only 30% of the population. In a perfect world, Mexico’s economy would keep growing in the years to come. According to Goldman Sachs, by 2050, Mexico will have the 5th largest economy in the world.
So these are some of the facts that are not well-known about Mexico. Teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in this country presents a great assortment of opportunities to begin a new career or simply to immerse yourself in a different culture for an extended period without having to accumulate massive savings.
The cost of living in Mexico is very low when compared to other countries. You can easily get by, comfortably, with less than $600.00 USD per month.
