Teach English Abroad
What Does Meddeas Offer?
Join a Spanish private school for one academic year as a language assistant. While you are teaching English abroad with Meddeas, you will get additional training with the support of a professional organization that provides you with a secure monthly income, a TEFL-related course, and health insurance. Moreover, you can decide whether living in Spain independently or enjoying the hospitality of a Spanish host family is the best option for you.
Meddeas offers 3 different programs suited to diverse interests and backgrounds to teach English in Spain. You won’t be required to have any Spanish language skills or previous teaching experience to participate. In any case, you will be expected to show commitment and a professional behavior.
"Teachers in Spain are affectionate and warm with students, which certainly contrasts with my experience of teachers having to maintain a certain distance and remove from students in the UK. As a result of this close-knit and supportive relationship between students and teachers, students and teachers alike have always been incredibly welcoming to me. One thing that is consistent wherever you choose to live or work in Spain is that the experience will challenge you, teach you and change you."
"I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by lots of friendly and helpful people who have made my time teaching abroad in Spain a largely enjoyable one. I am almost certain that I will return one day to see all the friends I have made, and also to visit my students, colleagues and of course my Spanish family. I was fortunate to be paired with a very hospitable family who welcomed me as one of their own."
"There are many pros of teaching English abroad with this program: I have enough to cover my expenses and enjoy my stay in Spain, there are many Spanish holidays, so there is ample free time to travel and sightsee. I live in a quaint town with absolutely everything that I need within walking distance, not to mention the beautiful Moorish architecture, hibiscus flowers spilling from every corner and mandarin trees lining every street. I feel grateful that I have the opportunity to live in this laid-back, paradise of a beach-town I now call home."
"I hope to be a teacher one day. Although this is a language assistant programme, I feel my task is no different to my peers. The programme provides first hand teaching experience that is hard to come by. It is an excellent opportunity."
Tips to Teach Abroad
Living in Spain is as safe as living in any other EU country, but much more affordable.
Teaching English abroad with Meddeas is a great experience, but don’t forget that it takes commitment and involvement. If you are looking for cheap holidays, you’ve come to the wrong place!
You will need much more initiative and autonomy than a teaching assistant, developing specific skills that will make you grow personally and professionally.
