These standards are the following; students must be given at least a 100 hours of teaching, 6 hours of practice teaching - under a qualified trainer’s supervision -; and the centre must be accredited to be able to provide training by teachers with a Master’s degree in TEFL or TESOL. All of the above requirements are met by TEFL Madrid, so if you decide to take your TEFL course in Spain, our Academy is the one for you.

FAQ 3: Why work in Spain?

Undertaking a TEFL program in Spain can turn out to be one of the most exciting experiences of your life. Spain is one of the European countries with the warmest climate, although it does vary substantially from the southern to the northern part of the country. For this reason, the landscape varies greatly: from humid green woodlands and abrupt mountainous areas in the north, to dry desert areas near the sea in the south. Spain has a rich and varied cultural heritage, bequeathed by the successive waves of different peoples: Visigoths, Romans, Arabs, Jews and Christians - who at times, cohabitated and interchanged knowledge and skills, thus enriching the cultural heritage and traditions of the country.-

Choosing TEFL in Spain is a great idea for other reasons as well. Due to the fact that Spain is one of the European countries’ with an open borders policy within the European Union, and is in easy travelling distance to over 50 countries, this country is the ideal choice. Within a couple of hours you could be in Rome, London, Paris, Berlin… you name it. Undertaking a TEFL course abroad is definitely an experience that anyone with a zest for travelling and adventures should live.

FAQ 4: What does the TEFL course in TEFL Madrid include?

This will depend on each country. Teaching English in Spain does not require the English teacher to have a degree, but it does require him or her to have a TEFL certificate. In any case, even if you have no prior experience in teaching, don’t worry, as this discipline can be learnt by anyone with vocation and a will to learn. And, if you think about it, we have all been ‘teachers’ at some point in our lives: helping a classmate do their homework, teaching your new work colleague how things are done… are all experiences you may have had, and which can help you discover whether you like teaching or not. If you do, do not hesitate to challenge yourself to teach English abroad as it will be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life.

FAQ 7: Do I need to be a native English speaker to apply to the TEFL course?
