Details of Position

Do you want to teach English in Spain next academic year? Become a Language and Cultural ambassador in Madrid or Murcia. ConversaSpain cooperates with public schools in different locations across Spain, to help the English department improve the language skills of their students and staff.
IMPORTANT DATES
- Deadline: May 4th
- Program length: October 1st to June 28th
The relation with the schools and the placements are fully managed by the local government. The program provides participants with support moving to Spain, initial training, and advice on every day practical non-school-related matters. The conditions and requirements are different depending on the region participants choose:
REGION OF MADRID
- 16 teaching hours per week
- 4 consecutive teaching days
- Euros 1,000 monthly stipend
- Mostly rural and pueblo locations
- Requirement: university degree

REGION OF MURCIA
- 15 teaching hours per week
- 4 consecutive teaching days
- 850 monthly stipend
- Cities of Murcia and Cartagena
- Requirement: high school diploma
REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE
There is no age limit and Spanish skills are not required to participate. However, there are some conditions candidates must fulfill to take part in the program:
- Be native-level English speakers
- Be citizens of a country where English is the official language
- Hold a university degree in any subject (for schools in Madrid) or a high school diploma (for schools in Murcia)

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 (ACCORDING TO REGIONS):
Basic: 850 euros in Murcia / 1,250 euros in Madrid
Basic + TEFL certification: 1,350 euros in Murcia / 1,750 euros in Madrid
Basic + Spanish Language and Culture Immersion Week: 1,350 euros in Murcia / 1,750 euros in Madrid
Basic + Spanish Language and Immersion Week + TEFL certification: 1,850 euros in Murcia / 2,200 euros in Madrid
THE ROLE OF A LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL AMBASSADOR IN SPAIN
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 arent in charge of entire classes and arent 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).
