is it possible to teach Eng. and just make enough to meet all your living expenses; another post said most salaries are under $500/mo, true? I need to make a living w/o rental expense but with ownership expenses. Also does anyone know about possibilities for renting out rooms to students, regulations and how much rental inc. to expect in a place like Salto with a lg. univ. populace?

Hi,

You canĀ“t make a living teaching English unless you know how. Many expats make a little extra spending money leading conversation classes, which are just that, conversation. Unless you have some background in teaching ESL how are you going to explain a predicate from a gerund? If you do have the understanding of English to be able to actually teach it, you might be able to make a living at it. A better idea would be to teach at one of the bilingual elementary or high schools. Which requires a BA and some credentailing which you can be in the process of completing when you are hired.

And about renting out a room to an Uruguayan student, this is not Illinois, children live with their parents till they marry, and if they do go to a University away from home they stay with a family member. And since everyone in Uruguay seems to be realated to everyone else, it is not difficult to find a family member to stay with.

From your posting I might guess you have never been here. I would suggest you visit before you begin to make assumptions about the possibilities open to you here.

Good luck.
