- Be native-level English speakers
- Be citizens of a country where English is the official language

“I would recommend the experience with ConversaSpain as it was great to have a guaranteed placement and the support before coming to Spain was very helpful. I chose the immersion week option and was very happy. It gave me a good introduction to some of the main sites of Madrid, but more importantly allowed me to meet some other people in our program who I have remained friends with in my time here”, Grant H., participant in Madrid.

FEES AND AVAILABLE OPTIONS (they vary according to the regions):

- Basic: €850 in Murcia / €1,250 in Madrid
- Basic + TEFL certification: €1,350 in Murcia / €1,750 in Madrid
- Basic + Spanish Language and Culture Immersion Week: €1,350 in Murcia / €1,750 in Madrid
- Basic + Spanish Language and Immersion Week + TEFL certification: €1,800 in Murcia / €2,200 in Madrid


Participants could deliver conversational English lessons to students or staff, encourage oral practice in English, explain the culture of their own country, help in other subjects (such as science, art, P.E., history, or music), assist with pronunciation and grammar, prepare students for oral exams, and collaborate with teaching staff in creating teaching materials and planning lessons. The specific activities and tasks depend on the school.

Language Assistants in Public Schools help teach English to Elementary, Middle and High School students. This is a supportive role, thus they aren’t in charge of entire classes and aren’t responsible for grading or discipline.

Assignment: Selected candidates will receive the details of their specific school placement two months before starting at the school. With our advice and support, it has proven to be more than enough time to get accommodation in the area sorted out. Age-group preferences are considered whenever possible (we cannot guarantee specific placement preferences).
