I have recently applied to do a CELTA course in Valencia in May however the course is already full so can only do it there in July. I had a look at courses in Madrid and there is a full time CELTA course but not until June. Is Madid still busy in June? Im not sure if everyone leaves for the summer for places nearer to the coast. Also is it unbearably hot at this time?
However there is a part time CELTA course starting in Madrid at the end of March, it lasts for 10 weeks but I think it would end up costing too much to live there for that long so was wondering if anyone knew how easy it is to get a bar job, I have experience and can speak some Spanish?
Anyway if anyone could answer any of my questions or suggest what they think is the best to do I ould be very grateful.

Madrid is still busy in June. A lot of locals leave in the month of August although not as many as before. June is usually hot in Madrid but I wouldn´t call it unbearable.
The ten week course could end up costing quite a bit because of living expenses. Bar work is hard to get, bars are finding it tough and some have had to close their doors for good. You could try to pick up a few classes or private classes but as a newcomer without contacts it might be hard to do.
To me the June course sounds like the best option
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
