Teach English in Spain - Immediate Start

Job description

Are you a recent graduate looking for a valuable professional experience in Spain? Start teaching English in Spain in October/November OR January and finish in June 2019. Receive a monthly income, TEFL-related training (paid by the programme), and ongoing in-country support.

Important dates:

- Deadline: ASAP or apply before November 25th
- Start Date: October/November 2018 OR January 2019
- End of the programme: May/June 2019

During one academic year, participants will teach 20 hours a week in one of the 200 schools Meddeas works with. Gain international experience and add transferable skills to your CV. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover a new culture and language, paying no fees and with a guaranteed monthly income, which is more than enough to live in Spain as a student.


• Monthly grant: €880-1,162 per month (enough to live in Spain as a young professional)
• Lodging options: independent housing or full board accommodation with a volunteer host family
• University course included (compulsory)
• More than 200 schools all over Spain
• Graduate programme for candidates with a degree in any subject. Advanced programme adapted to participants with TEFL/TESOL training.

“This is an opportunity to learn new skills in a teaching environment, even if teaching is not a future career goal: skills such as classroom management and of course organisational, planning, time management along with many other skills. Overcoming challenges within the classroom on a regular basis improves your ability to adapt and use your initiative in certain situations.  Learning a new language is another great advantage, even though it is difficult to learn the language, it is still a positive experience,” Kealan M., former participant.

The Role of a Language Assistant

During one academic year, participants will teach 20 hours a week in one of the 200 schools Meddeas works with. A Language Assistant is a native-level speaker of English, French or German, who supports the school’s language teachers and helps students with conversation practice. The tasks differ from the ones in a teaching assistant role and include encouraging oral practice of the foreign language; explaining the culture of their home country; helping in other subjects such as science, art, P.E.; acting as a role model for correct pronunciation and grammar; and collaborating with teaching staff in creating teaching materials and planning lessons.

After teaching English abroad, Language Assistants add transferable skills to their CVs, such as public speaking, language skills, creativity, team working, topic preparation, patience, maturity, autonomy, and cultural awareness.
