COURSE AND WORK TESTIMONIALS
Kirsten Hausmann, (USA)
“The TEFL course and time spent in Barcelona were very much learning experiences. Care and thought should be put into your work for successful outcomes, which requires a lot of time! It is easy to underestimate the work load at first and learning so much in 4 weeks can be overwhelming at times.
Nevertheless, I feel infinitely more prepared to enter the world of teaching because of this course and that is what makes everything worthwhile. The assistance and resources provided to the students are incredible and it is so nice to be surrounded by those who exhibit a clear passion for the TEFL career.
If TEFL is what interests you and you are willing to work hard, I could not recommend this course enough. A challenging experience that will help you learn and grow an incredible amount in 1 month”.
Phoebe and Caleb Hamel, (USA)
“My husband and I both completed the course in early October. It’s only been about a month and a half, but we have both found work and are settling into a weekly routine. Both of us do a combination of private tutoring and online teaching, and he also teaches one evening a week in an academy.
I found my private tutoring jobs within a few days of posting just one ad on tusclasesparticulares.com. There were actually more people responding than I was looking to take on as students! I found other jobs via word of mouth.
When you’re looking for work, keep your eyes and ears open and get connected with all the TEFL Barcelona Facebook groups. And then, be prepared to make friends with your students!
All of mine are friendly, funny, and kind and I really enjoy seeing them each week. You’ve probably heard that teaching English in Europe isn’t the most lucrative career choice, and so far we’re finding that true, which is why we added our online teaching jobs.
We like variety, so this works for us. The amount of freedom we have in making our schedules is great. Overall, the amount of work you get will coincide with how much you want and how much you hustle to get it!
We’ve found what we learned during the ITA TEFL course super helpful and valuable in our teaching thus far!“.
Otis Banwell (USA)
“I’ve been teaching English in Barcelona for five months now and have had a wonderful time.
I got here in January to get certified and though only four weeks long, the TEFL course I took with you, Lisa, Jamie and Michael provided enough information and hands-on teaching experience so that when I graduated in early February I felt ready to start teaching right away.
In my job search I started by posting a profile on tusclasesparticulares.com and in just one week I had found enough students that I did not need to continue looking for jobs. Everyone else who graduated in my TEFL class went on to teach a combination of private students and classes through a school or business but no one I know has had to struggle or leave the city due to a lack of work.
Barcelona is an amazing city and teaching English allows me enough free time to spend a good part of my schedule exploring and relaxing.
One piece of advice I have for potential TEFL teachers is to do everything you can to get a visa in your home country and then when you get here start the process right away of getting all your official documents that allow you to live and work here legally.
I am currently trying to extend my six month visa and am hoping it works out because I love it here and want to stay!”
