Internships in Language schools across Spain: in teaching or in admin! Use your languages and become TEFL certified

Want to teach English? And/or practise your Spanish or your French? We work with language schools across Spain who take on interns to teach English, teach French, or work in admin in Spanish, French, or English! 

In parallel you will become TEFL Certified with TEFL Trainer, free of charge - the language school where we place you will pay our accredited certification fees!

We offer Semester 1 or Semester 2 (or both) internships under Erasmus, but also Summer internships (in the UK and in Spain: also including our accredited TEFL Certification for free). As a university student you choose the length of your placement during the interview stages. You can even do 1 semester in 1 school or city, and semester 2 in another location (city and/or language school).

The language internship (either in teaching or in admin in a language school) requires a commitment of 30 hours a week, and in parallel up to 100 hours online, of studying towards your TEFL Certification with TEFL Trainer. In order to become certified, you will need to complete all 3 learning blocks: 

language internship in Spain > with lesson plans provided and support from your headteacher on site, teaching 1to1 classes and to reduced groups, and/or helping in admin.

  • 6 written assignments (400 words each on your teaching internship), 
  • 6 final exams online (on theory and terminology). 
  • TEFL Trainer mentors you throughout the certification process!

Get in touch with us for any further information: we have openings all year round. Please enquire.

TEFL Trainer provides support for finding accommodation and gives online academic mentoring before and during the internship. 

The language school provides their interns with opportunities to practise their Spanish.
