How much money do you need to start up
You would need the following as a minimum:
2 Months Rent : 700 €
Rental Deposit : 350 €
2 Months Food : 500 €
2 Months Transport : 100 €
Things to Bring
We recommend that you carry a nice pair of trousers, a few dress shirts and ties (for the guys) and skirts (for the girls) while coming to Madrid. Once you begin your teaching career in Madrid (if you are interested for the same), it will be important to dress accordingly for your professional teaching assignments. It is easier (and more economical) to pack some dress clothes before you leave than it is to buy them here in Madrid after you arrive. In addition, you must have both an awareness and understanding of English grammar, therefore its recommended that you study English grammar before you leave, and that you bring a grammar book(s) with you. For those who plan to stay for a longer time in Madrid after the TEFL course, we suggest bringing other teaching materials with you as well, such as various publications written in English (grammar books, business books, literature books, different types of magazines), colored markers, crayons, cut outs, games in English, etc. Start thinking about these types of things now, and your experience as an English teacher in Spain will be much more enjoyable later.

Medical Insurance
The students need to arrange their own medical insurance after arrival, if they so desire, for a very nominal fee depending on how long they are planning to stay in Spain. High quality medical insurance is readily available in Madrid for about 60 euros/month.

There are various Visa options for students coming to Spain to attend the TEFL program. We can sponsor student visas for our participants, who are citizens of North America (USA and Canada) and the European Union. If you are accepted into the program, you will have two weeks to pay your 300 euros deposit to take the process further. After you have paid your deposit, we will mail you two original copies of your official enrollment letter. You must submit one of these original copies (along with other paperwork) at the Spanish consulate's office for your visa. The whole process usually takes about two months.

In addition, please take note that we cannot sponsor student visas for students from other countries, the Spanish government will not allow it. However, these students are welcome to come to Spain on a tourist visa and take our prestigious one month 120 hours TEFL course, and then teach back in their home countries.

Moreover, all countries vary on exact tourist visa stipulations and requirements. Most are usually for 90 days, but it is the responsibility of the adult who is travelling to Spain to find out the exact stipulations and requirements from the Spanish consulate in his or her home country.

It is important to know that we are a private language school in Madrid. We are not a University nor do we arrange housing and room and board and visas for international students as say a university does. However, we do specialize in both TEFL training courses and teaching English to Spanish people in Madrid. Most of our clients want native speakers as their teachers, but we help non-Natives also to secure jobs as well.
