TEFL Internship in Spain

Get paid to teach and travel whilst experiencing Spain’s passionate culture.

WAS: £199 NOW: £139

Overview

Whether you’re placed in Valencia or Catalonia, teaching English in Spain is an increíble adventure unlike any other. Interns in Catalonia – the beautiful northeast of Spain- are able to visit the spectacular beaches of the Costa Dorada, Costa Barcelona and Costa Brava, and sample the local cuisine (such as ‘pa amba tomàquet’, i.e. bread with tomato) in some of the best restaurants in the world. Meanwhile, a visit to Valencia would be incomplete without stopping off in El Carmen, the old town; this area is home to the cathedral, art deco food market, ceramics museum and full of small bars, tapas joints and clubs.

We’ll make sure you’re ready to start your exciting new life in Spain, and fully prepared for your adventures as a TEFL teacher. As part of this paid internship package, you’ll get the 30 hour Teaching Young Learners certificate and a free TEFL course in Spain. These have been created to provide you with real, comprehensive knowledge of everything you need to become a confident, influential TEFL teacher and understand the key elements of TYL, from building a portfolio of writing activities for young learners to understanding the importance of safeguarding.

Thanks to local knowledge, professional support and 24/7 guidance, you can brush up on cultural do’s and don’ts in Spain and get to know your new host family. You’ll get an insight of what it’s really like to live a local, and experience life as they do.

Getting there

On your arrival in September/October, you will be picked up at the airport before being transferred to your local host family.

What do you need to organise?

  • International flights: You’ll need return flights.
  • Police check: Need to have police clearance
  • Budget: You’ll need to cover costs for extra meals or extra excursions etc.
  • Travel insurance (EU applicants): this is really important – don’t forget to sort yours before you travel!

Your teaching experience

Essentially, the role of the Conversation Assistant in the school is to aid teaching and student communication in English. Duties will vary from school to school, but will include assisting a whole class, along with a main teacher, with the children’s dictation, reading, and giving presentations explaining about their own country, culture, customs, and so on. If a Conversation Assistant has any other skills or passions, for example music, theatre or sports, the school may incorporate these into the school environment

Placements vary from reputable, professional Spanish infant, primary, secondary, A-level and technical schools in Catalonia and Valencia. While placements will depend on the school and the location, interns can expect to teach children between the ages of 3 and 16. A working week typically runs Monday to Friday, with 25 hours of classroom time weekly.

As part of this internship, interns will also complete the Family Project with the host family during their stay. The Family Project helps each family member practice and improve their English linguistic abilities with the aid of the intern. The project also helps the CA and family form a strong relationship as there is a feeling of a “real language exchange” within their home.

Location

After you settle in, you will then spend the next nine months gaining hands-on teaching experience in the stunning regions of

  • Catalonia
  • Valencia

Outside the classroom

By living with a local family rather than other travelers, you have a real opportunity to get an authentic, first-hand cultural experience when outside of the classroom. Living with a host family provides support in a safe environment and gives everyone the opportunity to practice and improve their language skills; interns can learn and practice Spanish in the relaxing, low pressured atmosphere of the family home!

Allowance

Host family accommodation removes a considerable amount of financial pressure when living and working abroad. Meals, laundry, internet and transport to and from the school are all covered, leaving you free to spend your monthly allowance of €315 as you wish!

This one-of-a-kind paid internship with Premier TEFL gives you much more than a chance to see Spain and become a competent TEFL teacher. You’ll gain a real understanding of the Spanish language, culture and way of life, make long-lasting friendships and develop invaluable life skills you can take with you, no matter what your future holds.
