"The vast region of South America holds an almost infinite range of opportunities for anyone who wants to share their native English. From the specialized training for the business communities of Santiago and Brasilia to the informal conversation exchanges with Mexican fishermen and Venezuelan waiters, the English language provides a link between visitors and residents.

Apart from a few popular cities, seldom do you find the glut of teachers you find elsewhere in the world, possibly because South America is often pictured as a place of poverty and crime, danger and corruption, dictators and drug barons. In fact, South America is home to a staggering variety of charming and generous people from café-culture urbanites to street kids, many of whom are eager to meet travelers and improve their knowledge of the gringos’ native tongue. The stampede to learn English seems unstoppable.

In the big cities the greatest demand for English comes from the business community. And because of the strong commercial links between the two American continents, the demand tends to be for American English. The whole continent is culturally and economically oriented towards the U.S." — Susan Griffith in Work in Latin America.
