Frequently Asked Questions

View More FAQs

Does this course qualify me to teach English?

Yes. The Trinity CertTESOL certificate, is one of few courses which are recognised by governments and schools internationally.

How much will I get paid as an English teacher?

The average rate of pay nowadays for new teachers is 12-15€/hour. Working for an academy full time (20 hours) you can expect to earn 1100€/month after tax. If you add on 2 private classes per week (it is easy to do more) you can increase that to 1300€/month.

Do I need to speak Spanish to teach English in Spain?

No. English is the only language used in the classroom and we want to show you how you can teach without using a word of the foreign language.

How long will it take me to find a job?

Normally two weeks of continued job searching. We run our job finding workshop early-on in the course so you can start looking for jobs before the end of the course.

Do I need a visa?

If you are a European Union citizen then you are free to work and study in any of the EU countries. If you are a non-EU citizen then you can stay up to three months as a tourist and you are free to study and do private classes during this time. If you would like to stay longer and obtain a work permit, the easiest way to do this is with a student visa, which will allow you to work up to 20 hours per week (which is full time for an English teacher). TEFL Iberia can process a student visa for you, for more detailed information please contact coordination@tefl-iberia.com.

What is the average cost of living in Barcelona?

You can expect to pay 500-550€ for a quality double room in a shared flat in the city centre, then about 140€/week on food and entertainment – this money will stretch quite far as Barcelona can be very cheap compared to the UK / US / Canada / Australia.
