TEFL Internships Spain: MADRID

Why choose Madrid?

According to recent consulting reports, the cost of living in Madrid is still generally lower than that of most major European cities. This is a key factor in the lifestyle and quality of life standards for the student community. Madrid is a very densely populated city and parking is a problem. However, the public transportation system is excellent. Buses, metro, as well as relatively inexpensive taxis make it easy to get around. There are several underground and metropolitan lines, each identified by a number and colour.


You will be teaching in one of these 2 centrally located neighbourhoods of Madrid:

  • Salamanca (metro: Diego de León or Avenida de America)
  • Pacífico (metro: Pacifico or Puente de Vallecas)

Internships Spain: BARCELONA

Why choose Barcelona? 

In Barcelona, public transport is excellent; metro, buses and comparatively reasonably priced taxis make it easy to get around. There are underground lines and metropolitan lines, easy to identify. The cost of living in Barcelona is still generally quite low for a big city. This is a key factor in your day to day. Indeed, in recent years the city has become a magnet for students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Do keep in mind that prices in Barcelona vary substantially from one district to the next. In any case, we strongly advise that you plan your budget wisely and book your accommodation in advance.


The host schools are in the following neighbourhoods of Barcelona:

  • Eixample (Metro: Paseo de Gracia)
  • Sant Antoni (Metro: Universitat)
  • La Sagrera (Metro: La Sagrera)
  • La Sagrada Familia (Metro: Sagrada Familia)

TEFL Internships Spain: VALENCIA

Why choose Valencia?

Valencia, the third largest city in Spain, experiences a hot-summer Mediterranean climate with Semi-arid climate influences. Also Valencia’s old town, el barrio del Carmen, is one of the most popular areas of the city. It is where much of Valencia’s nightlife takes place, along with the trendy area of Ruzafa. It is also where a wealth of interesting history and architecture can be found. In addition running through the heart of Valencia is the dried out riverbed of the River Turia. Besides, this space stretches for 9 km and offers a wealth of green tranquility at the heart of the city. Many of Valencia’s most popular attractions are also in the riverbed, for instance this is where the famous City of Art and Sciences  is – a cultural centre spanning 2km and 5 large buildings. It also includes Valencia’s science museum and Valencia’s aquarium.


We have partner language schools in these central areas of Valencia:

  • El Pla del Real (student area near Metro Facultats)


Why choose Castellón la Plana? 

Castellón la Plana is very similar to Valencia, with its quaint city centre and large modern student area. The transport is also excellent; tram, buses, and bikes make it easy to get around. The cost of living in Castellón is the lowest out of the destinations we offer. This is a key factor in your budgeting. In Castellón our partner language schools organise and pay for your accommodation directly (rent, utility bills, and wi-fi included) making your arrival and stay even easier. A quick tramway or bike ride to Castellón’s beach via the Avenida del Mar, a 10-minute bus ride to Benicassim, a stroll along Calle Colón, or a tapas tour by the Mercado Central could be part of your day to day.


The host schools are in the following neighbourhoods of Castellón la Plana:

  • Castellón de la Plana: centro

TEFL Internships Spain: VALLADOLID

Why choose Valladolid? 

Valladolid is the old capital of Spain and is famous for the purity of the Spanish spoken there – just like Salamanca. It is also considered a cultural centre with its Plaza Mayor, numerous art collections, as well as varied architecture including religious buildings and its university. Its proximity to Madrid and Salamanca also contribute to its appeal, as well as its mountainous gastronomy. Indeed, due to its geography and its altitude (2300 feet above sea level), its climate also means moderately cold winters and hot summers – considered slightly continental.


The host schools are in the following neighbourhoods of Valladolid:

  • Valladolid: centro
