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.

What our teachers say

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 had an issue today with my account and Sorcha from the Tefl Institute of Ireland was very helpful and sorted out the situation. I have gone for the Italy Internship and i have to say, I have gained insights from the directors of studies who interviewed me so far. The great thing with this company that is you will be assisted all the way with anything that you need. Thank you.

    Customer Care was fantastic, the horrors of attempting to navigate through all the different TEFL courses on Google was anxiety inducing and nauseating, however stumbling across the TEFL Institute of Ireland and having a chat with Sorcha definitely calmed my nerves a bit. Sorcha was extremely helpful and was quick to answer my endless amount of questions and in detail. I am hoping to take that leap of faith and partake in the course.

    I have just enrolled in the program so I don't know enough yet to comment on the lectures. Five stars, at this point, are going to Elaine Lenane for her guidance even before my enrolment, and all the help provided by her. I am ever so grateful to her. Also, 10% coupon helped a lot. Thank you for that TEFL Institute!

    I made an enquiry at the Tefl Institute for a refresher course, Tracy was super helpful in advising me the options and explaining to me which will work best. Thank you Tracy. Much appreciated.

    The TEFL institute of Ireland is a great option to get a TEFL certification. They have multiple levels of TEFL to choose from. You can complete the course at your own pace, and get extensions if needed. The staff are always there to help, and the one time I did need assistance, the TEFL advisor I spoke to, Sórcha O' Connell, was not only very helpful, but also got back to me almost immediately.

    Sorcha was very helpful in assisting me by sending me my 180hr level 5 cert online even though the course had expired. And also extended the other courses on my account by an extra month with no fuss. Excellent service.

    I'm South African and planning to teach English in Cambodia and Vietnam. I am going to sign up for the 30 hour IELTS EXAM course due to the need for people in those countries to meet the qualifying standards to study at English language universities etc.I must commend Walter Cullinan for the prompt responses given to my queries about the nature and scope of the course.I am not impressed, however, in his lack of faith in the Irish rugby team's chances of success against the Springboks.
