Moving across the world was a scary situation but the staff at TEFL Madrid made the process simple. They offer support from the word go and continue to offer this for the rest of your life.

The trainers at this centre instantly put me at ease and made me feel at home. I had no experience in teaching before I came to Madrid, but the director of studies was always on hand to answer any questions I had. This made me feel more relaxed with the whole experience.

I was worried that I would be unable to take the course as I am not a native speaker. However, TEFL Madrid Academy were there every step of the way to reassure me with all of my concerns. I really enjoyed my time at the academy and felt as though the trainers really cared about each and every students success. I know if I have any concerns that I can head back to TEFL Madrid and they will continue to be there to support me.
Jiwoon - Busan, South Korea
ll the staff were helpful from the very start. I remember how welcome i was made to feel right from the start. It wasn't just the teachers that were interested in how I was doing on the course but the rest of the staff too. I couldn't believe it when they brought out a huge paella at the end of the course to congratulate us on our graduation. Thank you. I will stay in touch and come along to your future workshops.
Natalya - Moscow, RUSSIA
I wanted to experience a different culture to the one I had grown up with and TEFL Madrid gave me this opportunity. They not only offer a TEFL qualification, but also provide all their students with a cultural immersion. They provide a traditional Spanish lunch to welcome their students, which relieves the first day nerves. They were always able to provide me with information on great restaurants, bars and clubs, which meant I was never short of things to do here in Spain.
Jeremy -Massachusetts, USA
I had just finished university when I joined TEFL Madrid academy, although there was a lot of work involved in the course, the trainers made learning great fun. They used their lessons to show us different classroom management techniques and activities which we could employ in our lessons. Great course, excellent staff and perfect location! Highly recommend this academy!
Brianne - Toronto, Canada
Fun and full of energy! This academy is not what I was expecting when I signed up to the TEFL course, but it is what you get. The energy and laughter throughout this course make the work worthwhile. My grammar was a worry when I started the course but the course included basic grammar and grammar plus and I left the course feeling very confident with teaching grammar.
Maria - Burgos, SPAIN
Being a Spanish Native I was concerned that my English was not good enough to complete my TEFL course. The staff at TEFL Madrid gave me a new lease of confidence in my English ability. I cannot thank them enough for all their support on and off the course.
Katherine - Queensland, AUS
I joined TEFL Madrid after having worked in a school for 13 years and deciding I needed a change of pace and location. I was very nervous about being a lot older than the others on my course, but I didn’t have to be. TEFL Madrid academy have a wonderful mix of ages within their courses, but also produce such a welcoming and fun environment that age is never a concern.
Sophie - London, UK
I had a preconceived notion of teaching when I joined TEFL Madrid academy, however quickly realised this was not the case and teaching could be great fun! I love teaching and it’s all thanks to TEFL Madrid. I can’t believe I get to do something I love and see the world at the same time!
Felix - Florida, USA
I have South American relatives and so really wanted to learn Spanish. When I came across TEFL Madrid, the idea of learning Spanish and seeing Europe really appealed to me. I didn’t think I would be very good at teaching but with the help of the trainers at TEFL Madrid Academy I learned what it takes to be a great teacher. TEFL Madrid Academy offered me fantastic support while I was on the course, but also helped me when I was looking at academies to work at after the course.
Ramon - New Mexico, USA
It was fantastic to not only get to learn how to teach English as a foreign language, but to also get to know so many fantastic people, who have become like a family. The trainers at TEFL Madrid are a great support and are always on call to help, whether late in the evening or on the weekend, I know they will reply to me. With my TEFL I found it really easy to find work after the course. TEFL Madrid helped us write our resume and then sent this out to local academies to help us secure a job.
