“A TEFL teacher’s life in Spain… the good, the bad and the ugly.”

This short webinar series is aimed at people already in Spain and who are thinking about teaching English or those who have the right to live and work within the European Union.

Dani Jones, the Director of Teacher Training here at Active Language, was in conversation with Simon Pearlman. Simon runs the careers service on our Trinity CertTESOL, DipTESOL and Teaching Younger Learners courses and is also responsible for teacher recruitment for our language school. 

During the webinar we answered the following questions. If you’re interested in the answers, please watch the webinar.

  1. What does TEFL mean? There are all sorts of acronyms; TEFL, TESOL, ELT and all sorts of courses too. It can be really confusing. What does it all mean?
  1. Would you recommend teaching English in Spain as a job?
  1. What are the differences between good and bad employers? 
  1. What do language schools look for when they’re recruiting?
  1. What’s a “normal” day teaching like in language schools in Spain?
  1. What sort of people work as English teachers in Spain?
  1. What’s going to happen in September? Will there be a demand for English teachers? When should we send CVs?

The recording of the webinar finishes rather abruptly. There was a very special offer on the Trinity CertTESOL exclusively for people at the webinar. This will be repeated in future webinars, so come to the next one and save money on your course with us. 

Future webinars will look at the following topics…

How can I find the best English teaching jobs in Spain?

Which TEFL course should I do?

How can I work online in Spain?

Look out for our social media posts and sign up to our free mailing list here.

If there’s anything else you’d like to know about, please do email us at

As Simon said in the webinar, one of the keys to getting a good job in Spain is to be properly qualified with a Trinity CertTESOL qualification and the Teaching Younger Learners courses.

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
