TEFL Jobs in Spain
There are loads of TEFL jobs in Spain and there are opportunities for qualified TEFL teachers in pretty much every major town and city. Teaching jobs can be found in any number of different settings, from state schools and kindergartens to private tuition and private language schools.
Wages and Cost of Living
The wages available for teaching English in Spain aren’t particularly high: you’ll be lucky to earn over €1400 a month (US1800) for 25 hours of teaching. The cost of living in the larger cities is pretty high too, so when you’re thinking of teaching English in Spain, you’ll need to take into account that you’ll have a great time, but you won’t be able to save a great deal of money.
TEFL Jobs in Madrid
Madrid is probably the biggest market for TEFL jobs in Spain. It is one of the largest cities in Europe, and home to many of Spain’s largest businesses. It doesn’t attract quite so many tourists as Barcelona, so it’s a great place to soak up the Iberian attitude to life away from all the sun-burn and sangria.
TEFL Jobs in Barcelona
Perhaps Spain’s most feted city, and capital of Catalunya, Barcelona is also one of the country’s top TEFL destinations. There are usually lots of TEFL jobs in Barcelona and the opportunities to teach English are many and varied. It’s also a rather glorious place to spend a little time: think lazy afternoons on Las Ramblas, wine soaked summer picnics at Parc Güell and enough art, culture and fine-dining to keep even the most refined TEFler happy.
TEFL Jobs in Seville
Seville is the capital of the beautiful southern province of Andalusia. While it doesn’t offer the sheer number of TEFL jobs available in Madrid and Barcelona, there is still a well developed TEFL jobs market and the cost of living is lower.
