Why become a certified English teacher in Barcelona?

970175_10201207408177194_447695730_nBarcelona, in the heart of Catalonia and situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees Mountains, is steeped in a unique and intriguing culture. It is one of the top destinations for EFL teachers and (at the risk of echoing the travel guides) it’s not hard to see why: it offers exciting nightlife and café culture, there is the opportunity to try a new career, experience a new way of life, to learn a new language, and the locals are usually open, friendly and happy to provide you with plenty of practice. Although Barcelona is a city of almost 2 million people, it is easy to get around. Thanks to an efficient metro system travel times between areas are relatively quick. The warm climate, the sea and beaches, fantastical art and architecture, the food, the nightlife, make Barcelona one of the most attractive cities in Europe in which to obtain a TEFL qualification and teach English.

Working in Barcelona: Our Job Guidance Service

The demand for English teachers in Barcelona has been high for quite some time, with growing opportunities in the Business English and English for Young Learners sectors in particular. The level of English spoken in Spain is not generally high Teaching practice is an important part of the TEFL Barcelona TESOL teacher training. Our TEFL trainees prepare their lesson together, then practice during classes with real Spanish studentscompared to other European countries (hence the high demand, particularly for children’s classes) and teaching here can be as challenging as it is rewarding.

Why choose our TEFL Barcelona course

Our TEFL course in Barcelona includes a comprehensive job guidance service designed to give you the tools you need to successfully market yourself and get the right job. In addition to group and individual sessions with advisors, you will receive information on teaching in Barcelona before the course starts.
Michael, our job guidance advisor, makes sure you’ll have a great head start on your job search. Graduates of our TEFL course typically start receiving job offers before the course even ends. While many graduates don’t receive full time hours at one school, many fill in their schedule by working at multiple schools or teaching private classes in addition to their contracts at language schools. The result is often a busy but varied schedule.

TEFL Barcelona Spain trainees study for their TEFL certification in small groups, and in a friendly and relaxed atmosphereTeaching and living in Barcelona offers such a diverse and rewarding experience that many teachers find they stay longer than planned. For some a sojourn in a foreign country is enough to give them the break they needed and they go home with a fresh perspective. Others make the country their home and pursue careers in EFL (Director of Studies, Teacher Trainer, etc.). Still others fall in love with the globetrotting lifestyle allowed by being able to find a job almost anywhere in the world, and they never go home again…  Our job guidance service never expires – we will assist you in finding work in any city around the world at any point in time!
