TEFL in Spain & Italy
What is TESOL?
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), also known as TEFL, will give your gap year extra UMPH! Not only will you explore new places, but you will have a world-class qualification to add to your CV. TESOL is in demand worldwide which means once you are certified, you will have endless travel opportunities while earning money and gaining valuable experience for your future.
At TEFL-in-Spain & Italy, you have the option to choose from two great locations to get your gap year started with an accredited 4 week TESOL training course.
A little bit about us: we are an English teacher training school accredited by Trinity College in London with locations in Malaga, Spain and Rome, Italy. Our schools have language academies integrated right into them in order to create an authentic development atmosphere. You'll practice teaching real students of English and get first hand experience in an academy environment. Our team is made up of professional and experienced course tutors and support staff who will get you ready to enter a classroom with confidence, even if you have never done it before. We offer assistance before, during, and after your course. We’ll help you find accommodation for your stay, guide you through the course and we also have a comprehensive, life-long careers service – where-ever you want to go.
TEFL-in-Spain & Italy have schools in Malaga and Rome. We didn’t only choose these locations because they are attractive and culturally interesting. When compared to other European countries, both Spain and Italy have low levels of English combined with high demand. By being strategically placed in these beautiful, opportunity-rich locations, you’ll have the added advantage of being able to easily stay and find a job or go on with your travels. Malaga and Rome are home to large airport and travel hubs which will aid you in your post-course adventures. And if you plan on staying in the area after your course, both locations offer outstanding opportunities for exciting experiences.
This southern coastal city is a magnificent combination of rich culture and the contemporary. Malaga is a diverse and excellent place for people who like a solid mixture of nightlife and the outdoors. Malaga knows how to party! They are best known for the August Feria where the streets transform into vibrant demonstrations of flamenco and fun. There are festivals and cultural events in every season, so don’t miss out!
With regards to the outdoors, Malaga literally has it all. Beautiful beaches and monumental mountains. It is home to the Caminito del Rey – Called one of the most dangerous walkways in the world, you can follow the footsteps of King Alfonso XIII walking along the cliffs of the beautiful gorge in El Chorro. Not to mention Malaga is near Sierra Nevada, southern Spain’s only ski resort. Malaga is a hop skip and a jump away from places such as Seville, Granada, Morocco, and Cordoba.
Surely one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the cradle of western civilization, you’ll be surrounded by culture and history. It is an incredible city with great panoramas, piazzas, buildings, churches, ruins, museums and wonderful restaurants. Our school is located right in the city centre, just a few steps away from amazing places like the Coliseum, Navona Square, Campo de Fiori square, the Pantheon and so much more!
Situated in the middle of the Italian peninsula and close to the sea, Rome has a temperate climate all year long. The combination of culture, wonderful people, Italian lifestyle and great food will make your stay an unforgettable experience!
Our courses are 4-weeks of intensive input sessions and teaching practice. You’ll learn key skills such as classroom management, methods for teaching grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, as well as lesson planning and execution. When you graduate, you will be awarded the Trinity CertTESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). This certification is equivalent to a level 5 on the Qualifications and Credentials Framework and is recognized by the British Council. This will become your passport for job opportunities in the UK and around the world. Getting a qualification during your gap year will ultimately make you more competitive at university and beyond. You also have the option to take 8-week part time courses.
Courses generally begin at the start of every month. Send us an email or visit our website for more information about course dates and fees according to location.
One of the most important reasons for getting TESOL certified is finding a job. That is why we developed our careers service, which will develop a foundation for your success in the TEFL job market. We will help you with essential documents for employment including residency permits. During the course we have sessions specifically tailored for job skills like CV writing and interview preparation. We also inform our trainees of exclusive job offers.
However, the most crucial component of finding a job is experience, which is why we put a lot of effort into making sure that the teaching practice you do with us is authentic. You will teach real students of English at various levels. Your classes will be observed and then constructively analyzed so that you are constantly improving upon your skills. You’ll also have the unique advantage of being in close contact with real teachers at our language schools where you can observe lessons and ask experienced professionals for insight and advice. Where-ever you want to go, whenever you need us, we will aid you in finding a job. So if you start in Rome and end up in Rio de Janiero, you can contact us if you need a hand.
