No, in fact we prefer that our teachers have a low level of Spanish or not speak it at all.

Teachers with a high level tend to translate in class, which is detrimental to the students?

listening comprehension and learning of vocabulary.


Do I need to be a native speaker

Yes, in almost all cases we prefer our teachers to be native speakers. However, if you are not a native speaker, but feel that your accent and level of grammatical knowledge is good enough to teach, we will certainly give you an opportunity to demonstrate what you can do.

Our classes vary, but usually they are one-to-one or small groups. The students tend to be middle-aged professionals working in multinational companies. Some classes are intensive, but most last from September to July.

Due to the complexity of this process and the fact that, unless you have an EU residence permit, it is nearly impossible, we do not do this for teaching candidates.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


Most definitely the most challenging unit of all that I have had to complete so far. The method of teaching phonetics, and pronunciation in this chapter, has a certain degree of theory to it, which ofcourse will need to be studied thoroughly. Teaching English is not a difficult career, when you completely understand all you activities, and the work which is provided to students, the lesson can be taught with ease.This lesson gives a brief overview of the two productive parts of language, writing and speaking. It also provides useful guidelines for handling creative speaking activities, as well as addresses common problems in teaching speaking and writing skills and some methods of overcoming those problems in the classroom. One big problem can be lack of student participation, which may occur for several different reasons.
