Whether you’re placed in Valencia, Barcelona or another area of 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, as well as the nightlife of Barcelona or Terrassa.

Not to mention sampling the local cuisine (such as ‘pa amb 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 our 120 hour Advanced TEFL certificate plus further Spanish university accredited teacher training during your internship. Maximize your teaching skills with this distance learning bonus course.

These courses have been created to provide you with real, comprehensive knowledge of everything you need to become a confident, influential TEFL teacher and understand the fundamentals of teaching English through language immersion.

Your two-day arrival orientation is jam-packed with fun ice-breakers and education workshops, presentations plus a welcome evening meal where you’ll get to know your fellow interns from around the world.

Thanks to local knowledge, professional support and 24/7 guidance, you’ll also brush up on cultural do’s and don’ts in Spain and get to know your new host family before hitting the classroom.

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.

Amida’s Spain Story
