Details of Position

Montijo is provided with all the amenities of a small town. There are plenty of shops and lovely restaurants that specialize in the tasty regional cuisine, and lots of bars, with a lively weekend nightlife, and friendly and welcoming locals. The cost of living is extremely low, with a beer costing just 1 euro.
It is surrounded by beautiful countryside where a huge selection of birds and wildlife can be spotted, and it is within 20 minutes of World Heritage City Mérida, 50 minutes of WHC Cáceres, 45 minutes from Portugal and WHC Elvas, less than 2 hours from stunning Seville and Lisbon, well communicated by train. Apart from all that, there are lots of other charming little towns and villages nearby.
It is important to bear in mind that the school is not in a big city, and would therefore suit a teacher who enjoys what life has to offer in a smaller Spanish town.
Comments from our current teacher...
"I spent one school year working at Montijo English Academy, which I’m sure will remain one of the most enjoyable and beneficial experiences I will ever have. Montijo is a charming town in Southwest Spain. It has a weekly market, and despite being fairly small, it’s shops and bars are always open and there are people around (except during Siesta time of course). It is the perfect place to learn Spanish, as I have yet to meet a single person who has been unfriendly or put off by my lack of ability to speak their language.
Montijo English Academy is a small school with maximum class sizes of 8 students. This creates a professional, positive, and relaxed atmosphere for both its students and teachers.
Amy and Juande are the best bosses that I could have ever hoped for. They have made sure that I always feel as though I am working with them, and not for them. They have provided me with support – both on a professional and a social level – throughout my time here. When I landed in Spain, I was greeted with a smile at the airport. Before I arrived, they had found and visited several different places for me to live, which they visited again with me once I was here, asking all the relevant questions. They showed me around the town, introduced me to their friends and family, and practically sorted out my paperwork for me. On top of this, they have been, and continue to be, extremely generous with their time. While I have been here, Amy has trained me. She is patient, kind, and constructive in her feedback, and prepares the majority of my lessons for me. Both her and Juande are always around to help with preparation of resources, and queries about anything, - from planning to classroom management" - Daisy Curtis
