In Response To: Oxford TEFL barcelona (Rachel)

My name's Carol Ibanez and I'm the teacher training coordinator at the North-American Institute in Barcelona which also offers the Trinity course.

I know it looks like I'm going to tell you to change your mind, but I won't (as we don't offer a course in September ;) ). Oxford TEFL is a very reputable school and they've been training teachers for a very long time. Our school has hired some of their trainees and they've always been really well-prepared for the job. So, as a fellow Trinity training center, I'd highly recommend them.

As far as finding legal work in Europe. It's true that it's hard. It's also true that you can find "under the radar" work. Although it's not the best option as you don't have any medical or legal protection. Some schools, like ours, do get working visas for American teachers. We usually hire people who are already living here with paperwork, but if someone doing the course or who's been working in Barcelona for a while comes for an interview and doesn't have the papers, they might still get a job. There are some things that need to be done (like be back in the USA while it gets done), but in the end you'll get your working visa.

I hope this helps and if you ever change your mind, please let me know. We're just a short bus ride from Oxford TEFL!

Good luck!
