Teach English in Spain: My Experience and Some Quick Tips

I was sent a request to talk about my time teaching English in Spain.

And as I was feeling in a good mood this morning, I came straight the office and recorded the following.

I talk about why I moved to Spain, how I managed to get a job straight away, how I got private lessons, what I liked, what I didn’t, and some advice if you’re considering moving to Spain or abroad to teach.

Here it is:

We had a blast in Spain. It was perfect for that time of my life. I had no responsibilities and we really enjoyed ourselves.

I taught for a couple of language schools. Firstly, I gave business English lessons in shipyards in Bilbao. Then, I taught in a language school in Valencia. I also gave private lessons in both cities during this time. Here is a post I wrote on that.

We loved the Spanish culture and made a lot of good friends. I had a lot of time during the day to do whatever I wanted to do. We went out on day trips and did a lot of exploring.

If you’re thinking about moving to Spain to teach English, here are some quick tips:

  • Get a teaching certificate (language schools want to see this)
  • Call around early to try and land a job (or interview) before going
  • Know that you’re not going to earn that much
  • Check out this program  if you’re from America
  • teach private lessons to earn more money
  • embed yourself as much as possible
  • choose a city that suits you
