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
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.
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…
