This TEFL internship in Spain is a three-month, unpaid training and development program for volunteers. The program's objective is to provide participating university students with an opportunity for cultural and language immersion, while they develop and gain English teaching experience in a classroom setting at a Spanish school. Participants will reside with a volunteer host family.

The program has been specifically created to make sure that participants gain the expected learning outcomes (knowledge, skills, and competences) by the end of their traineeship through ongoing feedback with the organisation and school in accordance with a thorough monitoring and evaluation plan.

Full board and free lodging are offered by the host family, so there are no rent or expenses to pay. The host family is associated with the institution where you are placed.

The locations of the schools are in northeastern Spain (Barcelona areas). We work together with a school association that represents 36 elementary and secondary institutions. We seek out individuals who are eager to not only contribute but also advance their own language and teaching abilities.

Each voluntary speaker is enrolled in a real government-registered Spanish infant, primary, secondary, or further education school for 20 hours per week and is given a tutor who will assist them in adjusting to the program and maximising their ability. Each school has been thoroughly screened, and all staff members, from the director to the assigned tutor, have received thorough training on the workings of the program.

For the duration of the program, families provide a secure and welcoming home. Families also truly want to share their culture with you and discover more about yours. There is no better way to adjust to your new life in Spain! The host families offer private bedrooms, full bed and board, laundry and cleaning facilities, internet, and pretty much everything else. Additionally, keep in mind that this program's main goal is for participants to experience and learn how to grow as English teachers; the accommodations are a huge part of this!
