TEFL course and TEFL Jobs in Spain
Spain is very much the mecca of English language teaching
- the combination of wonderful people, an agreeable climate,
and a culture which is very much the missing ingredient
in the Anglo Saxon world, makes it an irresistible destination.
We currently offer a fast-track TEFL course admissions
service for Cambridge CELTA & Trinity CertTESOL courses
in Barcelona, Cadiz, Madrid, Palma de Mallorca, Seville
The competition for 'TEFL in Spain' is considerable, and
schools in the major centres are usually swamped with applications
- hence the need for the personal touch and a healthy dose
of lateral thinking. The most popular centre for teaching
English is probably Barcelona, where some schools will even
require you to hold the diploma (e.g. DELTA, DipTESOL) before
letting you loose on their students. Another way in is to
prove experience or qualifications not only in TEFL, but
also in teaching Younger Learners, or Business English,
two highly important areas of specialisation in English
teaching. The key is to get off the beaten track, and go
for the smaller towns and provinces away from the capital.
You'll get a much more authentic experience here, and you'll
get to speak some Spanish too.
Everywhere you go, it's useful to speak at least a smattering
of the local language. This is particularly the case in
Spain, so look out for courses combining TEFL with a couple
of "chill out weeks" of learning Spanish - which
also gives you accommodation and something to do whilst
searching out that all-important first job!
