Thanks to its warm climate and wide range of attractions, Barcelona is one of the most popular destinations in Europe for both tourists and TEFL course trainees alike. The capital of Catalonia is Spain's second largest city, although its relatively compact size and laid-back atmosphere make getting around both comfortable and enjoyable. Via the city's excellent public transport network you can visit all of the main points of interest including several great beaches, one of which was named the number one city beach in the world by the National Geographic. Another must-see attraction is the Sagrada Familia, the extraordinary unfinished masterpiece by the architect Antoni Gaudi that has become one of the most iconic buildings in the world.
The city has plenty of things to see and do during the daylight hours, however, after dark is when Barcelona really comes alive. Centered on the lively La Rambla area, the city's nightlife is as varied and exciting as any in Europe. One of the most popular ways to spend the evening is to tour the countless tapas bars that offer up a mouthwatering variety of delicacies that can be washed down with your beverage of choice. For many course graduates the experience of completing their TEFL training in Barcelona leads to full time employment in one of the many language schools in the city. However, our extensive knowledge of the worldwide TEFL industry will ensure your career takes off wherever you choose to be.
If you choose our Barcelona training center you will complete your TEFL certification in a modern facility situated close to the vibrant center of the city. Thanks to this great location you will have easy access to multiple bus routes and metro lines that provide links to all the main tourist and entertainment sites, at any time of the day or night. Unfortunately your stay is not all about the free time, though when you are in the classroom you will have access to all the modern equipment and teaching resources you could wish for. The center also has large and airy classrooms that provide a great atmosphere for language teaching, as well as plenty of computers and other resources for planning your practice lessons.
Our Barcelona center also offers our combined TEFL course option that only requires you to attend the center for two weeks rather than four. This option is great for anyone who is unable to commit to a full month away but would still like the benefit of genuine teaching practice before they start working in their own classroom. Please see our combined TEFL course page for more details.Apply Now!
Not only is the magnificent city of Barcelona the most visited city in Spain, it is actually the third most popular tourist destination in the whole of Europe. This distinction means there is a wide variety of accommodation to choose from, although during the summer months cost and availability can be an issue. You are obviously free to stay in any hotel, guest house, hostel or apartment you choose, however, we are more than happy to arrange your stay in our recommended accommodation if you would prefer.
Our recommended accommodation consists of a private bedroom within an apartment shared with other course members or with a local resident. The apartments are situated within a short journey of the training center and within easy reach of local amenities such as shops, bars and restaurants.

All our apartments are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis so we recommend you make your booking as early as possible.Apply Now!
