Your trip Itinerary

On arrival, you will be collected by your host family or school liaison, who will take you to your new home (or you may travel by public transport, and your host family will meet you at the station).

During your first week, you will receive a local school induction and get the real inside scoop on teaching in Spain from other experienced teachers.

Your school liaison will review your teaching schedule, uncover the dos and don’ts of the local culture and placement, and nail down transport and logistics.

You will be fully prepared before you step into the classroom.

Now that you have been trained up, it’s time for the classroom experience. Remember your 120 Hour TEFL Course which includes our 30 Hour Teaching Young Learners Specialist Course in this package will give you the theoretical knowledge you need to start teaching. You will be working around 20 hours a week as a language assistant. You’ll be teaching students ranging in age from young learners to older teens with mixed levels of English. This will you give you an invaluable first-time teaching experience. Your goal will be focused on conversation practice and helping your eager students feel confident as they develop their skills. You’ll also be a proud ambassador for your home country by sharing your language and culture. This is a big part of this placement at school and with your Spanish host family. Your local teaching colleagues will be your go-to for teaching tips but don’t forget to bring your ideas into the classroom. We included our Teaching English Through Yoga and Mindfulness course to make your lessons unique. There will also be plenty of time outside the classroom to explore cities nearby, such as Barcelona and bond with your fellow teachers.

Congratulations, you did it! Make sure to celebrate this achievement.

The possibilities are endless for you now as a confident and experienced TEFL teacher. The world is your oyster!

What our teachers say

Louise

An overall excellent teaching English experience in Spain. It was a cultural shock when kids would come up and hug me after class. I’m still finding my feet around matching the right level of content to the correct course. I have a presentation about Ireland once a week, and we speak and play games in class. Students are interested to learn about my culture and talk about their culture in Spain.

    I recently attended a Webinar hel by Jessica and Walter. It was extremely interactive and I found the information relayed by both very useful. Both were patient, upbeat and had all relevant information readily available when asked a question. Very worthwhile.

    I have enrolled for a course with TEFL institute today, so cannot comment on the course yet. But what is worth mentioning is very competent pre-purchase guidance. I filled in a "call-me-back" form not hoping for much response, but soon was surprised by an actual phone call from Ireland from one of the instructors, Walter Cullinan (I'm in South Africa by the way). He gave me some honest and competent feedback on my points of interest, provided some further comments through timely email interaction and I ended up signing up for the course.

    I recently completed the TEFL course Level 5 with The TEFL Institute Ireland and overall, it was a positive experience (it was rather tough, though :))) ) Instructors were supportive and knowledgeable.I'm also grateful for the ongoing support provided by The TEFL Institute Ireland even after completing the course. The availability of numerous webinars aimed at assisting graduates in finding employment opportunities is highly appreciated.Today's webinar by Jessica and Walter was very informative and interesting.

    I just attended the webinar Teaching English in Europe: What You Need to Know, hosted by Jessica & Walter. It was informative and very helpful. I was very happy to learn about all of the options for TEFL teachers in Italy, particularly the increasing demand for private teachers.

    I've recently begun my 300+ Hr Level 5 certification and the lessons are clear and straightforward. The process to enroll was also simple and straightforward. TEFL Institute, including specialists and advisors such as Jessica Jeffery and Walter Cullinan, gives its students adequate support/help to complete their certification as well as giving guidance when looking for work overseas. I would highly recommend.

    The webinar took about 45 mins and was quite informative. Jessica and Walter were very open and helpful. Due to time constrains, not every questions was answered but considering it was only 45 mins - it was optimal.
