TEFL Course in Spain
Did you know that each year about 1.5 billion non-native English speakers take some form of English class? Globalisation, the current economic climate and employment market forces contribute to people of all ages needing or wanting to learn or improve their English.
Spain is no exception. Among the many cities with this high demand for English teachers is Seville. In fact the demand for English teachers is at an all-time high and continues to increase. Indeed almost 50% of ESL teachers return to their home country after just one year or move on to another foreign country to teach there. This means that their positions become vacant for new teachers to fill. This also means that ESL teachers rarely feel tied down to a career, a job or a city and can travel the world and keep working.
Many people think that native speakers have the monopoly on teaching jobs but this simply isn’t true. In fact as much as 80% of ESL teachers are proficient non-native speakers and they achieve equal success and respect thanks to their mastery of English grammar. Students will pursue various types of classes, depending on their preferences, needs or budget. These range from private classes, formal group classes, conversation classes or even attending business classes that their companies provide for them. Moreover, a majority of students, employers and businesses require a TEFL qualified teacher be hired rather than a native or fluent speaker with no credentials.
It is even a requirement for anyone wanting to complete a masters at a Spanish university to obtain a B1 certification and the great majority of students chose English.
