TEFL Barcelona | TEFL Spain

Barcelona is simply a magnificent city that offers a wide variety of things to do and sights to see. As the second city in Spain, you would expect to find a huge bustling metropolis. However, with a population of just two million, Barcelona offers a disproportionate range of entertainment, arts and culture, while remaining small enough to access all parts of the city easily.

You will never be without things to see or do during your TEFL course in Barcelona. Tapas evenings, cafè crawls, sailing trips, skiing, windsurfing, wine tasting and beautiful beaches - we can arrange just about anything. Barcelona also boasts an outstanding nightlife that rivals the very best that the Mediterranean coast has to offer.

With a TEFL certificate from ITTT you will find there are a wide variety of job opportunities available to you, both in Barcelona, throughout Spain, as well as across the rest of the world.
