    When you arrive in Madrid, you begin the four week Canterbury English intensive TEFL certification program (see program details in TEFL a weeks), in which as the days go by, you will begin to grow wings as a future English teacher. On the third or fourth week of the course, you will start to fly, as we give you real English classes to teach with OUR CLIENTS, earning A WAGE!! With the invaluable tools we give you during the course, we trust you with our companies, adults and children and we know you will excell! If you wish, you can continue teaching abroad these clients for the rest of the school year.


    After you have completed the four week TEFL program, you begin ten months (September to June) of online Spanish classes. This, along with our medium to large size 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! And get tefl jobs in foreign.


    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 go to our  scheduler as soon as the class is finished to grab the offer that fits best into your schedule! It’s easy teaching overseas.


    A Canterbury English International TEFL Certificate, Madrid, Spain, created in 1998 and accredited by the College of Teachers, London, England, created in 1849.

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


    After teaching in Madrid for Canterbury English from whenever you finish the TEFL program 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 Study Abroad Program and is included in the program fee. Come and learn TEFL Spain and become a teacher!

    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. 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

    The program includes ten months of Spanish classes in our Garcia Lorca Spanish School.



    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.

    Part of this program is the Canterbury English ( tefl academy) Getting to Know Spanish Culture Adventure Club, with monthly field trips and activities such as the Canterbury Grape Harvest Festival & Madrid Winery Tour, the Olive Harvest in Jaen, Real Madrid Night Out, Skiing & Snowboarding at la Pinilla Ski Resort, June Teachers vs Student Football Game & Picnic in Retiro Park and many more fun events!

    These cultural day trips are combined with the night time Canterbury English Party Club, including Pub Nights, Flamenco Nights, Gypsies and Torrero Nights and much, much more.



    Canterbury English is a real, bona-fida home away from home for you, because once you are on board, we will take care of you from A to Z.

      Joy Samson, EEUU
    • 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.
