Madrid is known in Spain as the “city that never sleeps”, and though it lacks the beach that Barcelona has, it is renowned for its nightlife, art, museums, and culture. It is Spain’s largest city and a great hub to get cheap flights from to visit the rest of Europe; or high-speed trains that will have you on a Spanish beach in less than 2.5 hours.

Our externally accredited, moderated, TEFL Madrid course is housed in a beautiful and historic building in the centre of the city. OUr TEFL Madrid course is considered the No. 1 English  Teacher Training course in Madrid.

TEFL Madrid testimonials

This course offers by far the best and most respected TEFL training in Madrid. And this is for a good reason. The course is intense, but it gave me and my fellow TEFL trainees all that we needed to start our adventure as teachers. Not only is every area of the subject covered, they also manage to teach very effective teaching strategies in a creative way. I learned more, and gained more effective teaching resources, in 4 weeks of this TEFL training than I did in 6 years of University for a degree in Education. Also, there’s a genuinely supportive and positive environment. At the end, you really feel like you’ve accomplished something and that you have all the support and resources you’ll need to get started. I found a job immediately after finishing the course, and after being here for nearly 4 years, I still get support from TtMadrid. From job searches to working through paperwork – especially necessary for someone from the States – the support is ongoing. Through the help of Tt, I now have a fantastic job. I’m so glad I found this course, and I can’t say enough about how much it has helped me and inspired me! I highly recommend TtMadrid to anyone considering teaching English as a foreign language.
