TEFL MADRID IN-DEPTH

Madrid is the modern and metropolitan capital of Spain, and is ideal for those wishing to immerse themselves in the culture and language of Spain and experience something extraordinary during their time abroad.

Its narrow, picturesque streets are full of the latest fashion shops, gastronomic delicacies and nightclubs, which make Madrid one of the must-visit places in Europe. Far from being the tourist trap of Barcelona, Madrid is open-minded and modern, while retaining the magic of historic and traditional Spain.

Perfectly located in the middle of Spain, Madrid is the ideal location to travel around Europe and has fantastic connections via airport, train and bus to all major cities and towns in the continent.

Madrid is a relatively cheap place to live and English teachers can earn decent salaries, while working just 25-30 hours per week.

Living expenses, rent and bills, are around €700-€900 per month and salaries (after tax) can range from €1,250 to €1,500 per month, meaning that you can travel, eat out and maybe even save comfortably.

Spanish food is relatively inexpensive and although Madrid is brimming with traditional restaurants, you’ll find that international restaurants and ingredients are easily accessible.

It’s recommended to have savings of approx €2000 – €2500 Euro before you begin your program, to live comfortably until you’re paid by your employer, which is usually at the end of your first month teaching.

OPTIONS DURING THE COURSE

We take the headache out of finding accommodation in Madrid. The team based in Madrid  offer a limited amount of housing through and can also advise you on the best places to live and how to search for an apartment in the perfect area for you.

We usually recommend securing housing for the first two months of your stay – at least covering your time doing your TEFL course. Once you’re registered for your TEFL course date, you’ll be in touch with the accommodation advisor who will send you all of the available options.

Host Families

Spanish families offer a room in their house for students to let (including half-board options). The accommodation is basic but our students love the experience and are able to practice their Spanish and get to see how Spanish families really live!

You will be at the TEFL centre all day and will have extensive homework so often having meals prepared during  the course helps to lighten the load a little. It’s not for everyone, however. If you are particular about having your own space and the kinds of food you can eat then you might be best looking at a shared flat option.

Host family accommodation (half board with breakfast and dinner included, as well as all bills) starts from €210 per week for a single bedroom.

Shared Flats

The shared flats are near to the school and have been inspected by our housing advisor to ensure that it’s comfortable and suitable for our students. They are perfect if you’re looking to live with your other classmates and are looking for a little more freedom.

Shared flats (all bills are included but no meals are included) start from €154 per week for a single room.

OPTIONS AFTER THE COURSE

It all comes down to where you decide to live and work, following the course! You’ll have full assistance from the housing team to ensure you have your new, more permanent accommodation secured, if you decide to move.

  • Course format

The TEFL course is 120 hours in total, spanning four weeks. The timetable is from 9.30-18.30 Monday to Friday and the course gives homework and project work to be completed outside the classroom. The course is intense yet perfectly organized so that each student can complete the work within the four-week timetable as long as they keep to the plan laid out by the course trainers.

There are 6 teaching practices, which cover all levels of English (beginner to advanced) and include individual and group classes. All teaching practices are observed and include detailed feedback by experienced TEFL trainers. The teaching practices are carried out in the same building.

  • Type of assessment

The course is assessed through weekly projects, a main project, and a final exam. This is all externally moderated and approved by the accreditation board.

  • Course location and center

The TEFL center is located in the middle of Madrid and is modern and bright. There are big classrooms for the TEFL training and the teaching practices are carried out in the same building in classrooms to suit smaller group sizes – ideal for teaching group English classes.
