    The Canterbury English Madrid Lifestyle and Spanish Program includes a work and study student visa that allows you to teach for twenty hours or more a week of work, at a pay rate of between 16 and 20 Euros an hour. This means that you will be earning enough money to support yourself in Madrid, as well as having the time to study and excel in becoming fluent in the Spanish language.


    TEFL MADRID ITS A UNBELIEVABLE OFFER: If you wish to stay in Spain after one year, Canterbury English will renew your student visa FOR FREE (Nobody else will do this).

    Why do we do this? Because after one year of working-teaching with us, you have paid your dues, and you are REAL family to us. We have developed a friendship and REAL friends help other friends out when they need help. And if you become an ex-pat and become hooked on Spain, like us at Canterbury English, then you might just want to stay. And if you do, just say the word, and that means we will allow you to do our second year Spanish course for free and we will renew your student visa for free. THAT’S WHAT REAL FRIENDS ARE FOR (other schools charge 2000€ for every year renewal)! And if you want to stay for a third year or more the same thing applies. Once you pay for the program TEFL Spain, the yearly renewals are for free and for life!

    1. Ten months of Spanish classes (from September to June) at our Garcia Lorca Spanish School. Our live online classes take place during the week and cover three Spanish levels, A1 meet Mondays and Wednesdays, A2 meet Tuesdays and Thursdays and our intermediate group meets on Fridays (days are subject to change in order to adapt to student and teacher availability). You chose the level that best suits you and you can also sit in on the other levels if you feel this is beneficial for you. For example an absolute beginner can sit in on the A1 and A2 levels and gain from it, but an A2 student would not usually find it beneficial sitting in the beginners level. The online class size varies quite a lot between as few as 3 and as many as 25 students so you can benefit from small intimate classes as well as from bigger dynamic classes where you learn fast with our super sweet and first rate Spanish teacher.

    2. Accommodation assistance.

    3. Buying a Spanish telephone.

    4. Opening a bank account in Madrid.

    5. Setting you up with an appointment to get your NIE number (legal Spanish identification). With this number you can sign a contract, rent an apartment, and many more things.

    7. Information packs, maps, etc.

    8. Lending you a hand with the paperwork for your Spanish TIE Number.

    9. For those who would like to work for Canterbury English as well as other schools, you can request a personal resume (CV) session for tips with the director.

    10. Orientation on market hiring conditions such as pay rates, contract conditions and job interviews.

    11. Orientation on interviewing at other schools to complete your schedule (a full-time schedule is between 20 and 25 hours of teaching a week).

    12. Contact details to send your CV to hundreds of other language schools.

    13. Through the Garcia Lorca Spanish Culture club run by our Spanish teacher and the Canterbury English Club run by our founder Richard, you will be meeting other graduates, making friends and building up a social network of ex-pats living in Madrid!

    14. During the Madrid Lifestyle course you become part of the Canterbury English family, a real bona-fida home away from home, as well as starting what could develop into a long term relationship, depending on how long you want to stay in Madrid. Some of our current teachers did one of our programs over a decade ago and we still meet and go to Canterbury English Club events together and enjoy each others company.

    TEFL Spain for you



    When you arrive in Madrid, you begin the Madrid Lifestyle Course and on the FIRST DAY of the course, you will be eligible to receive class offers, and can start teaching to EARN A WAGE as early as the FIRST NIGHT of the course. This is so important, because with this course you hit the ground running and you are earning money immediately. It means that you don’t have to wait a month or two before being farmed out by ALL THE OTHER PROGRAMS in Spain to finally acquire a job when your savings have almost gone dry. This is a key factor that will help you stay in Spain, because you have gained a crucial 30 to 45 days and will be able to support yourself much sooner than other programs.

    And it’s so easy and smooth with Canterbury English, because we take the job hunting stress, worry and uncertainty out of your life and give you peace of mind so you can enjoy Spain and your Spanish classes with a guaranteed job WITH US under your belt on the day you arrive. With the invaluable tools we give you during MADRID LIFESTYLE COURSE, we trust you with our companies, adults and children and we know you will excel!

    After you have completed the MADRID LIFESTYLE program ORIENTATION with Richard, you begin ten months of Spanish classes at our Garcia Lorca Spanish School. This, along with our small to large study groups will help you make rapid progress in the idiom, because living in a country, immersed in its culture and surrounded by its language, as well as studying it, is the fastest way on Earth to become fluent. Becoming fluent in Spanish will be a golden feather to wear in your cap for the rest of your life!

    Because our Spanish school is located together with our English teaching academy, you are on-site every day and this makes it much easier for you (and for us) to receive more paid work to fill out your English class schedule. You receive the daily offers on your cell phone during your Spanish class and pop into the scheduling department as soon as the class is finished to grab the offer that fits best your schedule!




    ✔ The Garcia Lorca Spanish School Nine Month Certificate, Madrid, Spain, created in 2000.



    After teaching in Madrid for Canterbury English during the school year from when you arrive until to June, you will need a summer job to get through the summer, because classes in Madrid slow down during the summer months.

    Canterbury English teachers will need our guaranteed summer camp placement job in the summer and for you this is one of the key pillars of our one year Madrid Lifestyle Program and is included in the program fee. Come and teaching abroad!

    In July and August you will be working in a summer camp near the beautiful and monumental city of the conquistadores called Caceres, which is in the province of Extremadura, Spain.

    Instructors will be working with campers from age 12 to 17 over the course of July and August.

    The position will pay a total of 1.000€ (or 2000€ if you teach two months) in cash, with housing and three meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) included.

    Much of the time spent with campers will be enjoying activities including games in the outdoors, hiking and trekking, swimming, music and drama. This provides a great and unique opportunity to meet new people and make new friends for both the kids and the instructors.

    The camp is all day, from breakfast at 9am in the morning until bedtime at night, but there is time to rest during the day, because there are many instructors and you take turns for breaks and siestas.

    In the camps, there is one instructor for every 4 or 5 children. The tasks to be performed would be English classes in the morning and for the rest of the day games, being with the kids at the swimming pool, taking them on nature hikes, canoeing, archery, drama productions, etc.

    If you have a particular skill, such as playing the guitar, singing, crafts making, playing any other instrument, juggling, etc, then this will be very welcome.

    We would love you to spend the whole two month of July and August with us (and know our english teaching jobs in spain). But, in the case that you are not available for the four weeks, you also have the option to join us for two weeks and earn 500€.

    22 years teaching

    • I am someone who has become a professional English teacher with Canterbury English and I look on this as a full time career. No doubt about it, there are unfortunately other less than reputable schools and TEFL courses out there who are all too happy to take your money, farm you out to fend for yourself, as well as leaving you unprepared for the realities of teaching.
