Teach English in Spain

Do you want to live and teach English in a region hugging the Mediterranean coast? A place with the most dazzling architecture in the world and where food is so rich the air is infused with its scent? Come teach English in Spain and enjoy your new life in Catalonia and Valencia.

Our TEFL interns in Catalonia can soak up the sun along the world famous golden coast. Visit the hometown of Salvador Dali and fiesta into the night in Barcelona or Terrassa.

And get ready to consume the best food of your life. Why not take a trip to the Mercat de la Boqueria and get lost among the sea of food restaurants.

Just a short hop south and you’ll find yourself in the cultural hub of Valencia. This region has some of the best and craziest festivals in all of Spain. Make sure to mark March into your calendar for Las Fallas, a UNESO intangible cultural heritage.

Stand in awe of 30 ft high floats parading through the city while everyone parties on the streets. On the fifth day the real spark happens, but we’ll let you see it for yourself.

With spots for 300 interns competition can be tough. But with our 120 hours online TEFL training you’ll stand out from the crowd and boost your chances at living La Vida Española.

This internship is ideal for first time teachers as we provide you with extensive training to become a confident and effective teacher in the classroom.

Our dedicated team in Spain are on-hand to give you professional support 24/7. What’s more, your host family will take you under their wing and make you feel like a local. You won’t find a more immersive experience, we promise you.

  • Health check: Each applicant must provide a full health statement

Your teaching experience

For 9 months you will take on the role of teaching assistant, working in teams of teachers to improve the conversational level of each student. Following a curriculum will help you to draw up lessons plans. But there is plenty of space to infuse your own creativity into the lessons.

Why not teach your students about the country and culture you come from? Or teach English through song and games.

Placements will be in schools with age-groups ranging from infant up to secondary school. Interns can expect to be teaching children between the ages of 3 and 16, with your daily lessons a mix of various age-groups.

Your working hours will be Monday-Friday with an average of 25 hours of classroom time. The remaining 10 hours will be dedicated to lesson planning and grading.

An important part of your time in Spain is the completion of a family project with your host family. The project will help to improve the family’s English proficiency throughout your 9 month stay. But it is also an opportunity for you and the host family to form a strong and genuine relationship. Many of our teachers leave Spain with a new family for life.


All successful applicants will spend 9 unforgettable months in the Spanish provinces of:

  • Catalonia (Barcelona included)
  • Valencia

Outside the classroom

Outside of the classroom you will be dividing your time between family and social life. Living with the host family will give you an authentic and unique experience. It couldn’t be more immersive if you tried!

You can be confident joining this internship with the knowledge that you will be in a safe environment. All the while improving your Spanish fluency.


With rent-free accommodation, daily meals, transport to and from school and all the perks of home-life (e.g laundry and bills sorted), your 315 monthly stipend can go towards excursions or tapas at the weekends.

The TEFL institute knows that this will be an experience of a lifetime for you. Not only will you gain a lifetime qualification and build an impressive teaching resume, you’ll come away from this adventure with new perspectives on life. As well as lifelong friends and stories that will go with you everywhere.
