EFL in Madrid

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by hoblos, May 1, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    Thinking of heading for Madrid in September/October to teach EFL. Have PGCE, CELTA and 10 years of experience.
    Have lived in Madrid previously and loved it.

    Can I make a living out of English teaching in Madrid after building up contacts and getting established over a 2 year period?

    I already know about the requirements when going freelance regarding tax etc. and on cost of accommodation and living expenses.

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    thanks

  4. Dear Hoblos,
    I have a friend who teaches EFL in Madrid and he makes enough to live on. He works Mon-Fri and has a job at a language school and then another job teaching at a business. So he works in the morning and then in the late afternoon/evening. It's taken him about 2 months to get sorted and settled but he's very happy. I'm not sure of the exact details of his salary but he is comfortable, although he rents a room in a flat (sharing with two other people) as a whole flat to himself would be somewhere in the region of 500-600 euros I believe.
