  Teaching English in Honduras
Central America’s second largest country, Honduras encompasses miles of unspoiled beaches, acres of exotic
rainforests and a slow-paced atmosphere that makes every day feel like a vacation.
The tourism industry in Honduras is booming as Tegucigalpa (the national capital), the Caribbean Bay Islands, and the ancient Mayan ruins of Copan become traveling hotspots. This has increased the need for English skills throughout the country, as local residents find it essential to interact with tourists in order to take advantage of the growing market. More than half the population of Honduras lives below the poverty line, making the country Latin America’s poorest. Yet, because it is relatively undeveloped, it is also one of the most pristine. As a TEFL teacher in Honduras, you will typically work in primary and secondary schools with about 25 to 35 students per class. English teachers in Honduras have a rare opportunity to help less-fortunate local students become more successful, while also enjoying perks like free housing and leisure time to explore this exotic country.

Honduras Overview
Dubbed the original Banana Republic, Honduras is a fascinating country with impressive biodiversity. The nation is comprised of hundreds of miles of white sandy beaches, unspoiled exotic forests, and intriguing archeological sites highlighting ancient Mayan culture. A gateway to the Pacific coast, the national capital Tegucigalpa stands 3,000 (914 meters) feet above the sea. This cool, bustling city is nestled between beautiful mountains, and gleams with colonial history and cultural zest. Tegucigalpa has grown from a small mining town to a metropolis of about 1 million people. Embraced by lush forests and natural reserves, the city blends Spanish and indigenous heritages with a pulsing night life. On the whole, Honduras is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural nation, with about 90 percent Mestizos, a blend of Spanish and Indian ancestry. The people embrace a simple, laid-back lifestyle and a friendly, welcoming demeanor.
