Are you looking for an exciting job that uses your Spanish skills?
Teaching Spanish as a foreign language is a flexible and enjoyable career, perfect if you are looking for a job that allows you to travel, interesting work to fit around your life or a new direction. Qualified teachers of Spanish are in high demand. As one of the most spoken world languages, Spanish is taught in classrooms across the planet, which means plenty of potential work for teachers. Does that sound good to you?
Training courses for teachers of Spanish
We offer ELE teaching courses across in partnership with Spain’s leading language teacher training centres.
The courses cover core teaching skills such as clear communication, classroom control, teaching to different groups of learners and identifying learner needs. You will learn alongside an interesting mix of people from across the Spanish-speaking world. But you do not need to be a native speaker to take the course.
With a recognised qualification under your belt, not only will you be well-prepared to teach in a variety of contexts, but you are much more likely to find work.
Combine a Spanish teaching qualification with an active holiday in Spain
Take an initial ELE training course with ESL and enjoy the benefits of learning to teach Spanish while surrounded with Spanish language and culture. Use your course centre as a base from which to explore Spain and strengthen your ties with the Spanish language... read the Spanish papers, hear Spanish songs and enjoy the everyday chitchat of life in Spanish.
Who are initial ELE teacher training courses for?
You do not have to be a native speaker to complete a teacher training qualification and courses are available if you have an upper intermediate level of Spanish (B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference) or higher. Spanish teaching courses for non-native speakers include more Spanish language training, to help participants improve their Spanish skills as well as their teaching skills.
Refresher courses for teachers of Spanish
Even as qualified and experienced teachers we benefit from an occasional refresher. We offer courses for individual teachers or groups so, whether you are working as a self-employed Spanish teacher, for a private language school or within a state school, we can arrange a package that corresponds to your needs.
