Miss Miller! Lovely to hear from you! I'm very well thanks! I see you popped back to England for a bit - lovely pics :) I just read your blog 'My life as a tourist' and it really meant something to me...I'm just about to make another big transition to another country and to another TEFL job. Exciting and scary! I've been feeling a little nostalgic about Ecuador recently too! What great times...Hope you're well and let me know what life is like in Andalucia. I've not been to that part of Spain, but if you're there long enough I'll definitely come and visit! XX
hi......How are you?
I am totally new to this site. I want to be a TEFL teacher. Please assist me how I can be and its job oppertunities. I will be highly grateful to you.........Thanks
Thanks so much for getting back to me. I have the visa thing sorted (although it will be a student one) through a program that puts North Americans into Spanish classrooms to teach English. I plan to find some private lessons though to supplement my income from the program.
I'm a city girl, so I think Madrid will suit me well in terms of things to do and the pace to day to day life. I'm really looking forward to immersing myself into Spanish life. It is sad to hear about the economic problems people face, and to be honest that also has me a little worried. Who knows how the new government will deal with the economic issues Spain is facing.
I will look through your photos and blogs to glean some more information. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. Maybe I can repay you with a jug of sangria when I'm in Madrid :)
Hi! Another member recommended you when I asked about living in Madrid. If you don't mind me asking, how are you finding life in Madrid? I am going to be moving there this fall and I'm a bit apprehensive as I don't speak Spanish well.
Hi Alix, I read your post about the papers in Spain, the NIE and the social security .. and I'm almost done with my course, I want to teach in Spain so I was wondering if I should start doing those things now or should I wait untill I actually get a job over there...Thank you for your time! =DSaludos desde México
Hi Alix, I hope you are well and thank you for accepting my friend request. I have travelled to Madrid in the past and find it to be a fine city. I am looking at Madrid as a potential CELTA course destination. Can I ask if you know anything of good or bad of the following schools
The British Language Centre, (Plaza Castilas)
Chester School of English
Hyland Language Centre
The internet is awash with so many schools, and a heads up would be helpful. Of course you may be able to recommend an alternative. Secondly, from your perspective how are things in respect of employment in Spain? The European situation is not great and Spain seems to be suffering greater than most, namely with the higher unemployment figures. One of your posts suggests plenty of work in Madrid. Of course if others should read this, input is greatly appreciated!
I hope I am not asking to much of you and I thank you in advance.
Hi, I just spent a couple of days in Madrid before and after going to La Alberca with Pueblo Ingles and thought it was an amazing place. Apart from Vaughan and Pueblo Ingles are there any other good language schools/websites you may be able to recommend for finding work in Madrid. Im hoping to finish my TEFL soon (waiting for the results of checkpoint 4) and them I'm ready to go. I speak Spanish and already have my NIE and a social security number.
Hi. Do you need a degree to even consider working somewhere like Madrid? Sounds awesome & the hotter the better too!
Thank you! It's a lovely picture!
Hope you are well (-:
Hi to anyone looking at my profile for information on Ecuador!
I'm usually happy to talk about Ecuador, but please just ask your questions here on my profile, instead of sending me private messages. Then other people can read the answers.... as it is I just keep answering the same questions constantly! Some of them are questions that are difficult to answer - maybe soon I'll write one last post FAQs!
As it is I've written lots of posts about it already - see my blog....
Basically, the best advice I can give is - suck it and see! In Brit English that means try it for yourself - just because I like strawberry flavour that doesn't mean you will too! I can tell you all the things I love about Ecuador and then other people will tell you exactly why they hate it.
You will get a job if you try. You will either get a visa or manage without one. There is no reason not to go unless you want a life of stable security - you will not get that, not compared to Europe or America anyway.
