    Does anyone have any experience in teaching on the island.
    We have been offered teaching posts on fairly low salaries 32K euro a year and wanted to know if this was good for Spain?

    Spain is notorious for being low: you don't go there for the salary...

    Do you have a package of any sort with it? If yes, it sounds like a decent offer (32k x2) for Spain. Even without a package, that's close to an M6 salary in the UK.

    It's pretty good for Spain BUT Mallorca won't be cheap - Palma has always been a bit pricey and unfortunately rents are being forced upwards in many touristy parts of spain by the airbnb effect. Check current rental prices before you decide whether you think it's a good enough offer or not.

    That's really not low for Spain. I saw a school yesterday on TH that pays 13,500 Euros a year before tax.

    Unless you're in a position of responsibility, this seems to be more than most Spanish schools offer

    its not working the PM -
    I am looking into a position at American International school Mallorca -
    I was wondering if you had any experience with them or know anyone that works there -

    I was interested in finding out about the city Manacor - and how the students are as far as behavior - how are the admin? is cost of living high for a family of 4?

    I am currently teaching in the middle east and the students are challenging to say the least -
    however i dont want to face similar situations with less pay - but will consider if students are mostly well behaved and the salary is enough for 4.

    thanks again - if you prefer to send me a PM that would be fine
