Course and Work Testimonials
Melanie Valerga (Gibraltar)
When I started the course there were days that I thought, ”Oh wow, I’m going to have to teach this!!”
Luckily for me, I got a job in an academy a week after finishing the course, so everything was fresh in my mind.
I started working with children, which is fun if you have a good group. Very soon I was asked to take over a group of adults.
That was more challenging as adults want to know why and how everything works. When I prepare the class I have to study the grammar to make sure they don’t catch me out on anything.
I’m enjoying being an English teacher very much. I recommend it to everyone who speaks English well”.

“Since finishing the TEFL course, things have been going so well. It took me one week after finishing the course to land my first job at a school in Sarrià-Sant Gervasi for a summer camp. I am one of the main English teachers and every day is a new day.
I plan the lessons, I interact with the children and help out with other school activities.
For one week during this camp, we went to La Garrotxa and what an experience that was!
Since being at this school, more opportunities have arrived. I’ve met parents who now want me to do private lessons with their children and the word spread and I am in contact with a few families now. It’s funny how things work out.
Besides teaching, I am loving living in Barcelona. It is one of the most amazing cities I have been to. I have met the most amazing people, eaten the best food, and explored/still exploring this historic city. I am so happy that the TEFL program exists because, without it, I don’t think I would be here in Barcelona.
Overall, I would recommend the course to everyone without hesitation. The teachers are amazing; the people I met through the course are still my friends till this day, and it gave me the knowledge I needed about teaching English”.

“Finding teaching work in Barcelona requires patience, persistence and flexibility. However, finding students is not an issue because so many people are wanting to learn English for their jobs or for school.
At first, your schedule may seem scattered, but once you gain some consistency, it smooths out and becomes much more enjoyable.
If you decide to come to Barcelona to teach, beware of holiday months (December and August). People leave the city for one month and work is slow. 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.
Some of my more proactive classmates actually got hired and started getting paid to teach before we had even completed the course!
Once January and September roll around, you will hardly have to look for students. People will come to you.
It is a challenging job but so incredibly rewarding to help someone communicate in a new language. I would highly recommend teaching abroad if you are interested in education, languages or travelling”.
