According to your background and interests, there is a Meddeas program for you that will include a university-certified course and a placement to teach English in Spain.

Advanced Program
• Qualifications: degree in English Language or Education OR any degree + TEFL certificate
• Conversation practice with up to 28 pupils
• Monthly stipend: 930 Euros OR 480 Euros + full board accommodation with a host family

Graduate Program

Accommodation details
Depending on your preferences and motivations, there are two lodging options: full board accommodation with a host family or independently housing. Families in these programs are linked to the school and chosen by its principal. In fact, they host the Language Assistant on a volunteer basis to experience a cultural and linguistic immersion. The main idea of this cultural exchange is that, when they are not at school, Language Assistants will spend half of their time interacting with the family in English and the other half interacting in Spanish, traveling or enjoying their spare time as they want. During the program, the family will cover meals and accommodation expenses.

The sooner you apply the more possibilities you'll have of being offered a suitable placement, so we encourage candidates to apply as soon as possible.
