Join the team at the Pichilemu Institute of Language Studies (PILS)!
The English program at Pichilemu Language School is a community-oriented project that has been offering quality and accessible English classes to all Pichileminos since 2005. Teachers in our team are people who love teaching and want to provide a great experience of language learning to all their students. ESL teaching is more than language proficiency, and at our school, we believe our students can learn much more than grammar and vocabulary. ESL teaching can be a great tool to explore our local and international world, and we are looking for a teacher who will guide our students in this journey of discovery.
