In our special TEFL + Intensive Spanish combined programme, we offer our TEFL trainees the opportunity to learn and/or improve their Spanish. If you are teaching in a foreign country, some knowledge of that country’s language and culture can make your life easier and enrich your experience. The experience of learning and speaking a foreign language will help you understand language and how languages are acquired in general, which helps you adapt to your student’s needs.
Spanish Course Objectives:
Along with our Partner Spanish language school, we have designed the intensive Spanish course to meet the needs of non-EU applicants. This will allow you to gain an accredited teaching qualification (Trinity CertTESOL) and then immerse yourself in the Spanish language. The course is for 6 months (e.g. 1-month TEFL + 5 months Spanish).
Students attend group Spanish classes for 4 hours a day (09:30-13:30) from Monday – Friday for 20 hours a week after completing their Trinity CertTESOL course.
Placement test on arrival (please advise if you already have a certified level) Starting date, every first Monday of the month
Also included in the registration fee:
Learning materials Social and cultural events Rental of books and films in the original language Discount card (for discounted prices for shops/gym/pharm/clubs, etc) Up to 2 certificates of attendance and the final exam.
The TEFL course costs €1499 for in-person courses and €1299 for 100% online or online-blended courses. The intensive Spanish course costs €620 per month + €200 visa admin fee + €45 registration fee (5-months costs €2850).
Total course fee for 1-month TEFL + 5-months Spanish: €4124 – €4324
How to get the Student Visa:
Once you have completed the payment for the whole period of stay, we will be able to provide you with a certification of enrolment and an invitation letter to Spain to get your Student Visa. Please, take notice that we can release documents only for the period the student is attending the course and only for payments sent in advance (the whole amount).
*In case the visa is denied, the School will refund the amount paid for the Spanish course, after receiving a copy of the letter of rejection of the Visa, issued by the Spanish Authority (Embassy or Consulate), withholding an administrative fee of 200 euros. The fee for the Trinity CertTESOL course will not be refunded as it can be attended online or on a tourist visa.
