Teach English in Antarctica!

Teach English in Antarctica!

Greenheart Travel is thrilled to announce our new Teach Abroad program in Antarctica! This is an incredibly unique opportunity to teach in the Earth’s southernmost continent, and it’s FREE to those who are qualified. We’re working directly with our Antarctican partner, Penguins Learning English (PLE), to make this program possible.

  • Igloo accommodation is included
  • 1 year paid teaching program in a penguin colony
  • Placements will be in beautiful glacier tops or vast snowy valleys
  • Meals are included (freeze-dried)
  • Round trip transportation to placement location via US naval ice breaking ship
  • Minimum Qualification Requirements: Must know how to build a fire, experience living in extreme conditions, has read the book Hatchet, beard is not required but is highly preferred.

Not included in the program:

  • Eskimo parka
  • Dog-sled transportation during your program to school
  • Companionship
  • Fun


Why is the program duration 1 year?
Antarctica only unfreezes during the summertime, allowing for boat travel. For this reason, you’ll be stuck there for the entire year until we can arrange for your transfer out. Please allow 4-8 weeks for transportation to and from your teaching location.

How much English will my penguin students know?
Penguins don’t speak any complex languages, so the chances are highly unlikely that they will have any background in English.


What is the currency? How will I be paid?
There is no currency in Antarctica, so you will have to trade and barter for anything you’d like to acquire.

Will I have a co-teacher?

Will there be other foreigners in my placement location?

What resources will I have in the classroom?
Resources are scarce in Antarctica, so you’ll need to be prepared to work with nothing.


Is it safe?
Crime is pretty rare, unless you commit it against yourself. There is one “questionable” murder in Antarctica, ever.

How do I get a visa?
There is no government in Antarctica so you won’t need a visa.

What can I do on the weekends?
Experience all the sites Antarctica has to offer in your free time.






Fun facts!
Antarctica has a permanent human population of 0 as of 2014
The temperature in Antarctica has reached −89 °C (−129 °F)
About 98% of Antarctica is covered by ice that averages at least 1.2 miles in thickness
