All organised by our trusted in-country partners, your internship includes a teaching assistant placement in a reputable school, accommodation and support whilst you’re there.

You’ll be living in a homestay with a local Spanish family who’ll be there for you throughout your time in Spain. Be sure to make the most of living with your host family! They’ll be able to recommend where you should go in your free time, help you pick up the local phrases and provide support whilst you settle into a new way of life. By the time your placement reaches an end you’ll be speaking the lingo, having made new friends and might even have a second family in Spain!

Your teacher training includes 120 hours of online TEFL training, plus 4 of our best specialist courses: Advanced Grammar, Teaching One-to-One, Teaching Business English and Teaching Young Learners. You only have to complete the basic 120 hour of training before you travel, but you’ll be prepared for any teaching situation with these amazing extras!

You’ll get the chance to meet the other interns during your orientation with fun ice breakers and some time to relax over a welcome meal! You'll also get to meet the support team who will give you some pointers about living and working in Spain and answer any questions you might have.

Day 2 - 266: Your teaching experience
Get a good night's rest after your jam packed first day in Spain - it's time to meet your new Spanish family!
