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 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, and the world is your oyster.

Evelina

Hi everyone. This is Evelina and I’m here to talk to you all a little bit about my experience in Thailand. I am from Lithuania originally but moved to Ireland back in 2004. In Ireland, I graduated with an International Business degree in 2018. I’ve always wanted to find a way to travel and even live abroad.

Domhnall

I received my bachelor’s degree in English and history from University last October. In my last year, I was still undecided between doing a master’s degree or going directly into a career, so I decided to take a year off and travel while I could. I’d heard about TEFL courses for a long time…

    I was called back by the lovely Elaine who made sure all my questions were answered and kept me in the loop about special offers available on courses that she thought would suit me! She gave me advice on what other services are available via the TEFL Institute such as the jobs board and she completely shared in my excitement about getting going! I'm looking forward to getting started, thanks Elaine ✨

    I really enjoyed the 10 hour online teaching course with Michelle. She has a great grasp of grammar, excellent teaching knowledge and a lively and engaging teaching style. She also is very encouraging and supportive. Thanks so much Michelle for everything. Tim.

    I participated in the 10 hour virtual teaching course with Michelle Benson. Michelle is knowledgeable, experienced, and patient, and she created a supportive and productive environment. The course zipped along at a jaunty pace, and was an excellent introduction to the practicalities of teaching.

    I just finished the 10 hour Virtual TEFL course under Michelle Benson's expert tutoring. She's a fun and purely vocational teacher. She makes it rather easygoing.I had read the manual before hand but I believe it's not really necessary to do so nor to open it whilst following the course. Michelle shares the info on her screen.As a teacher myself, I expected a much more complex and demanding approach so if you're completely new to the subject, it's exactly what you need. It's just the right place to lose your fear and feel comfortable in front of others.I would have appreciated a longer course to be able to go into more detail and "polish" certain aspects but, all in all, it gives you an idea of what is expected from you as a TEFL teacher.Thanks a mil. Michelle.

    I did the 10h Virtual TEFL course and I had a great time. I was quite nervous since I am not the most comfortable talking to new people, but the tutor, Michelle Benson, was so friendly and so were the other students. The class was engaging, some points that were taught in the 180h course where I was confused were so simply explained (how to distinguish the tenses for example). The atmosphere was great, laughs here and there. The presentation wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, I thought I'd be more nervous, but all of the encouragement from everyone towards each other was great. Very enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend. Now I'm not as daunted by zoom classes lol. God bless :)
