FAQ 1: What exactly is the TEFL accreditation?
The TEFL certification is a widely recognized accreditation that certifies the capacity of a teacher to teach English in non-English-speaking countries, such as Spain, France, China, South Korea… This certificate is a requirement for any teaching centre interested in hiring qualified English language teachers, in order to comply with quality standards set by the British Council. 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.

The quality of training in TEFL Madrid is guaranteed and approved by the British Council; also, the Academy works in alliance with other renowned TEFL Schools in Spain and English academies, such as the TOEFL Academy in Madrid and the American High Stand Academy.
One of the main advantages of studying at TEFL Madrid is that we are committed to aiding our students even after the course has finalized. The Academy makes necessary resources available to our students in order to make finding work as an English teacher easier; in fact, the academy collaborates with different employment agencies, as well as a network of academies all over the city where teachers can not only practice the abilities learnt at TEFL, but may also find job opportunities.
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?
The TEFL course offered by TEFL Madrid consists of two possible variants, depending on the specific needs of the student. For those who belong to the European Union, the Academy provides a EU Citizen Course, a 4 week training course which includes premium employment services – guaranteed interviews at the best agencies in order to be able to find a TEFL job in Madrid, help with creating a CV, work advice – and legal aid for any type of bureaucratic affair. In addition to this, while undertaking the course; students will have access to unlimited WIFI at the Academy, text material and software, during as well as after the course.

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?
The only requirement for someone applying for our TEFL courses is to be fluent in English.

FAQ 8: What happens once I graduate?
As mentioned above, we are committed to setting up as many interviews as possible with agencies from all over Madrid; we work with over 300. Also, we always provide job counselling for teachers who have just finished the course and who wish to use their TEFL for finding a job in Spain; help with preparing CVs, interview workshops where we teach our students how to show their best qualities and achieve the best possible results in an interview.

However, your possibilities for teaching are not restricted to Spain. Once you have your TEFL certification, you will be able to travel to any country you like to teach English. As it is the language most spoken in the world, as a native language and also as a second language, you will be able to live almost anywhere in the world.
FAQ 9: What permits do I need to be able to work and live in Spain as non EU citizen?
If you are not a member of the European Union you will need to apply for a visa, which will be issued once you have reserved a place for a TEFL Madrid course or the Spanish Course. The type of visa issued with these courses also qualifies you to work in Spain. Here in TEFL Madrid we are committed to helping you resolve whatever bureaucratic affair that arises, so you have no need to worry in this regard.
FAQ 10: When I arrive to Madrid, where can I stay?

In fact, Spaniards are one of the most social, hospitable people you will ever meet. They embrace visitors who are willing to learn and experience their culture with open arms and it is not uncommon to meet expats who frequently choose their life partners from these warm and generous people. Spain is also centrally located and well connected to the rest of the world, making it extremely easy to venture out and explore.

Additionally, you will also need to obtain an NIE number from the police station as well as register with the national tax office (our TEFL MADRID academy helps you in the process to obtain all of these, minimizing the headache).
Why TEFL in Spain?Teaching English in Spain is a profession that has been in increasing demand the last few years. For this reason alone, teachers from native English-speaking countries (such as USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand) are in high demand.

Teachers often choose to move on and experience other parts of the world such as Japan, China, South Korea, Thailand, Argentina, Brazil, Greece and Czech Republic (to name a few).
