Teaching English in Spain.

By: Ruth Polak
The increase in residential tourism as well as holiday tourism in Spainin recent years has seen a rapid increase in the desire of the Spanish to learn to speak English. This has resulted in the mushrooming of English languageschools, a steady demand for well trained teachers and many opportunitiesfor teaching English in Spain.

The English language has been influential around the world for hundreds of years, but the growth in the last 10 years - thought to be mainly due to the Internet and the globalisation of business activity - has been spectacular.

This has meant more and better opportunities for English language teaching in Spain and of course worldwide. At the same time it has also meant greater attention to standards in language teaching, and the need for more formal processes for ensuring quality on behalf of students.

The result of thishas been increased popularity in qualifying for a TEFL certificate plus an increase in the standard of the course and its recognition inthe world of foreign language tuition.

It is now virtually impossible to get a job teaching English in Spain or anywhereelse in the world without the TEFL certificate.

The course aims to develop students knowledge of the workingsof the English language and equips them with the skills to impartthis knowledge in turn to their students.

It is generally a one monthintensive course with great emphasis placed on practical experiencealong with close tutor support.

The course will give you all the skills and confidence you will need to walk into a foreign classroom with complete assurance.

Teaching English as a foreign language is a great way to see the worldand get paid. You experience the countries you work in at first hand rather than as a tourist as you become totally immersed in the culture of thecountry in a way that no tourist ever can be. If you are interested in teaching English in Spain then you can take the TEFLcourse in either Barcelona, Madrid or Sevilla. The course costs 1,233.00 euros in Barclona, 1,155.00 euros in Madrid and 1,310.00euros in Sevilla. All prices include tuition fees and course materials,the higher cost in Sevilla is because it includes accommodation.

In the other 2 locations accommodation is not provided but the course organizers will help you to arrange it.

There are many opportunities for teaching English in Spain so take your TEFL certificate in one of these three locations and then help will be given to finding you ajob in the area of your choice. Most contracts last for one year andthen you are free to try another country that appeals to you, maybe,China,Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil,the list is endless and the choice is yours- a TEFL certificate really is a passport to the world.
