TEFL Internships Spain: CÓRDOBA

Why choose Córdoba for your Erasmus+ internship?

Situated in the very heart of Andalucía and dating back to 35,000 BC, Córdoba is a city bursting with an incredible array of monuments. It’s an absolute dream for anyone in love with Roman history as well as the spectacular legacy left behind by the Moors and the Jewish community. They don’t call it the city of three cultures for nothing! Just a quick look around the atmospheric Jewish quarter or strolling along the bustling palm and citrus tree-lined boulevards will give you a feel for what this city is about: vibrancy, culture and tradition.

Córdoba is also a compact, relaxed and liveable city. You can walk it in less in half an hour and enjoy many local festivals throughout the year. As well as the city itself having a lot to offer, the countryside that surrounds Córdoba is a must-visit for nature lovers, where you can spot many different types of local wildlife – the Iberian Lynx being one local species – as well a enjoying hiking trips, bike rides and horse riding.


You will be teaching in the very centre of Córdoba, a stone’s throw away from the most important amenities, monuments and shops.

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 well located neighbourhoods just outside of Madrid:

  • Alcalá de Henares: just outside of Madrid
  • Getafe: just outside of Madrid

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)

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 areas of Valencia:

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

I attended a workshop across two weekends on teaching business, young learners and exam preparation which were equally as well-planned and engaging. I’m sad it’s over!

This is a great course (…) In particular, Julia offers impeccable support throughout the whole process and dedicates a lot of time to her interns!

I really enjoyed the blend of online training with teaching in Madrid, giving me a chance to implement what I had learnt. The reflective diaries were also really helpful to delve deeper into the theory behind teaching.
