Teaching English in Spain

Is it true that you are searching for TEFL jobs in Spain? Teaching English in Spain is one of the mainstream TEFL destinations for outsiders to teach English abroad. Teaching English in Spain is an extraordinary method to experience another culture and a plenitude of tapas and sangria (food and drink).

The qualifications to teach in Spain may differ by job and school type. For local English speakers there are no requirements for certification while they are applying for Assistant and tutoring positions. They simply need a college degree. In the event that you have a certification in ESL/EFL teacher training courses in Spain it can help you for applying to teach at a private school or language academy.

You can earn up to 1500 – 2500 USD per month for around 15-20 hours of work each week. Since the work hours are negligible you can take up some side tutoring.
