FAQ´s / For teacher´s

Do you provide accommodation?

 We don’t provide accommodation but you can find information in “Useful Tips”.

Do I need to speak Spanish to teach for you?

You don’t. In fact, we use very little Spanish in the classes at all.

Does it matter that I don’t have any teaching experience?

On the contrary, our preference is that you have little or no experience but, if you do, we’re still interested in talking to you.

Do I have to be a native speaker?

If you are not a native English speaker, but have native ability with the language then you can work here. Many of our very best teachers are not natives.

Do you sponsor non-EU candidates?

We can't, unfortunately, hire those who do not hold a European Union passport or Spanish residency). Neither can we hire Student Visa holders.

How many students will there be in each class?

The maximum is 6, or 8 with with junior learners or job seekers.

What’s the typical teacher profile?

We have teachers from 40 different nationalities, aged between 21 and 64. Most of them had never been English teachers before they joined us.

What’s the typical teacher profile?

It doesn’t exist! Our teachers have diverse backgrounds, experience and personalities. We have everything from professional clowns to IT technicians: each and every teacher has their own unique style. What is important, however, is that all teachers are able to effectively use our method. When clients come to us, they’re looking for a common core even if every teacher is different.

How many hours a week will I work?

A full-time teacher can expect to work around 20 - 25 hours a week but many of our teachers work with us on a part-time basis.

Do I need my own transport?

No, although it can be useful for freelance teachers.

Do I have to do the training course even if I have previous teaching experience?

Yes. Our clients sign up with us because they want classes with our style and philosophy but, most of all, with our teachers who most embody that same style.

Do I need to have a good knowledge of English grammar?

No, but of course, if you do, it helps. Many of our teachers start the training course with virtually no knowledge of English grammar (that was certainly my case – Fitz).

Will I have to work weekends?

Contract teachers will have to work on Saturdays until lunchtime. Weekend work is not likely for freelance teachers.

Can I choose which programs I teach on?

We take your location preferences and work type (contract or freelance) preferences into account but those preferences must also match current demand

How long is a typical class?

Classes can be anything from 45 minutes to 4 hours and everything in between. The average in-company class lasts an hour while the average contract teacher class lasts 3 hours

Will my classes change each month?

This depends on the type of programme you are assigned to. Teachers assigned to in-company classes, working off-site, are likely to be assigned to their students for a full academic year. Teachers working on our premises will be assigned to programmes varying from one week to 9 months – most typically for 3 months at a time.
