Based in three great locations near the centre of Barcelona, we offer friendly, dynamic and professional environments in which to obtain the TEFL qualification of your choice.

At TEFL Barcelona, we guide you step by step, from applying for a student visa, should you require one, to enrollment in the course that best suits you, to choosing the best teaching jobs, and beyond!
Or scroll down to discover some of our graduates’ experiences.
The courses are designed entirely around our students; we keep class sizes small so that tuition is as personal as possible and all students receive as much help and assistance as they might need. Students are encouraged to adopt their own style of TEFL teaching and are given ample class time during the course in which to practice and develop.

In fact, TEFL Barcelona provides our School with a reliable source of new and qualified teachers: not only for their ability to be versatile in preparation but for their well-planned and intentional methods of teaching.”
