    Hi and welcome to the forum. As you’re looking for a job only for the next few months, you will need to be quite proactive. Waiting for employers to come to you as with your forum post is one possible way to find work, but if you haven’t already done so, I would suggest also contacting some language schools directly (have a look [url=http://www.eslbase.com/schools/]here[/url]).

    Hello I am an native English speaker and I have just completed a teaching degree in England. As part of my degree I was given the opportunity to teach in Spain for a month in my 3rd year. I found a job in Spain on this website, that looks amazing but they require a native speaker with celta qualifications. I don’t have this but as I am a fully trained primary school teacher and I am a native English speaker I was wondering if there was any point me still applying or whether I would have to complete the celta training first. Any advise would be much appreciated.

    Hi Clare,
    You may have already made the move so this may be too late. I am in a similar position to you, my PGCE and experience is in UK secondary schools. I do have CELTA but haven’t actually taught it for more then a few months, and that was years ago. In my experience the language schools are usually impressed that I’ve got loads of experience with kids (a lot of TEFL teachers would prefer teaching adults), and to be honest, being able to motivate and engage students is a great skill to have. The grammar side is something you can learn as you go along. Approachability and confidence count for an awful lot.
