TEFL Granada | TEFL Spain

The historical city of Granada is a magical location to take a TEFL course. Granada is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Spain's most visited attraction, the Alhambra Palace. It is the former capital of Moorish Spain and this is evident in the many palaces, churches, monuments and ancient dwellings that are still home to many of the city’s inhabitants. Today, the city retains much of its ancient charm and is set in a delightfully well situated location. It is also a popular university town with a vibrant nightlife, as well as plenty of interesting restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres and clubs.

Geographically, Granada is unique as it lies between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Costa del Sol, within the magical region of Andalucía. You will never be without things to see or do here and opportunities abound for skiing or trekking in the mountains and for soaking up the sun on the nearby coastline. Granada itself has so much to offer that you may need to stay here for sometime in order to experience it all.

Food has always played an important role in traditional Spanish culture and this is still true today. Traditional favourites such as gazpacho, tapas, chorizo and paella, all washed down with locally produced wine, are still popular with locals and visitors alike. When you consider all the outstanding features that the city of Granada has to offer, it is no surprise that it has become a prime location for TEFL courses in Spain.

The School

Our TEFL courses in Granada are delivered in a traditional Carmen style building located in the Albayzin, the white washed, ancient Arabic quarter which is a traffic free zone made up of plazas, fountains and narrow cobbled streets. The Albayzin faces the Alhambra Palace and is, justifiably so, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in its own right.

The historic setting for your TEFL course in Granada is characterized by traditional Moorish style houses known as Carmens. These magnificent constructions epitomize all that is Andalucía, with white walled buildings hiding cool interior patios, water features and hidden gardens, all surrounded by ancient Moorish architecture.

The actual TEFL training centre has a magnificent garden, numerous classrooms, a computer room, Wi-Fi, a coffee shop, and all the facilities necessary to successfully complete your TEFL course.

You are never too far from anything in Granada and the TEFL training centre is conveniently located in the city. You will only need a ten minute walk to reach the city centre; however, as the Albayzin is located on a hill side, you can expect the walk back to take a little longer. Should you feel less energetic, then buses run regular trips into town, and of course back again.


It is difficult to imagine a more beautiful setting for any training course accommodation anywhere in the world. During your TEFL course in Granada we offer you the unique opportunity to stay in a beautifully restored, sixteenth century, medieval Hospederia within the Albayzin.

Here you will have your own private en suite room with a shared common area that is equipped with Wi-Fi, television, a large kitchen with a communal dining area and laundry facilities. The accommodation also benefits from a roof top terrace with views of the Alhambra Palace. It is located only a short walk from the TEFL training centre and within comfortable reach of Granada's historical sites, night life, restaurants and transport links.

    All non-EU visitors to Spain are required to have a passport valid for at least six months after their arrival date. Visitors to Spain (provided that they stay for no more than 90 days) from the following countries do NOT need a visa:

    Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, El Salvador, Japan, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Panama, Paraguay, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, United States of America, Uruguay and Venezuela.

    Furthermore, all citizens of the countries included in the European Union, per the Schengen Agreement, do not need a visa to enter Spain. They do, however, need an identity document and we recommend they bring their passport as well.

    Citizens from all other countries should contact their local Spanish consulate to obtain current travel regulations.*

    * As this information is subject to change at any time, we advise everyone to contact their local Spanish consulate for current travel regulations prior to planning their trip.

  • What is the course schedule?


    The first session starts on Monday at 9:00 a.m. sharp.

    You will receive a course timetable on the first day of the course. The timetable is subject to change depending on holidays and other considerations.

    Trainees must attend all sessions included on the timetable unless they are sick and require medical treatment. This is particularly important for Teaching Practice (TP) as it is very difficult to arrange alternate TP times. You will normally have roughly three hours of input for each day of the course schedule.

    Teaching practice is usually held in the evenings and each lesson lasts for 60 minutes. Trainees either team-teach or observe these classes. When teaching, trainees are observed by qualified staff; feedback is given after each class, usually on the following day.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    Lessons are delivered to students aged 16 years and older. The vast majority of students are Spanish but other nationalities do attend some classes. Class size varies from one-to-one lessons up to 16 students. Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?


    We average 24 trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?


    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. There are specific dress requirements that adhere to the local Spanish culture and basic ideas of professionalism. All trainees are expected to dress ‘casually smart’. Visible tattoos and piercings are not acceptable. ‘Office standard’ hairstyles and coloring are also required.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. You may also want to bring a recording device, a digital Dictaphone or a smart phone would be ideal. We encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. It is also a good idea to bring a thumb drive (data stick). We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
