TEFL Courses in Seville | Spain

Seville is the capital and largest city in the region of Andalucía in southern spain. The city is perhaps one of the most stunning and energetic cities in Europe. Seville is known for its vitality and no visitor can escape getting caught up in its enthusiastic atmosphere. The city is chic, proud, self-assured and historic, while also being welcoming and fun-filled. Its inhabitants, known as Sevillians, are famous for their humour and vivacity.

Tapas originated in Seville and the city has over a thousand bars which offer an almost unlimited variety, from cheese to vegetables, from ham and sausage to seafood, the Sevillians certainly love their food. Sevillians enjoy moving from bar to bar and sampling one dish at each venue, tapas can certainly make a refreshing alternative to traditional meals.

The areas around Seville are certainly worth a visit and are also easy to get to. A distance of 24 miles east of Seville is the wonderfully maintained town of Carmona. It is one of Spain’s oldest towns and there you will find a stunning, distinguished area of top class restaurants and boutiques. Just five miles north of Seville are the impressive mosaics and amphitheatre of Italica which was once the third largest city in the Roman Empire. This city grew in importance in the 2nd century AD during the reign of Hadrian when it had a population of half a million people.

Studying a tefl/tesol course in Seville is a perfect opportunity to explore the city and immerse yourself in the Type of Spanish culture that only Seville can offer. Once you have completed your course and become qualified to teach English in Spain you will find that many job opportunities open up for you.

Seville’s Climate

The best time for weather in Spain is during the spring and autumn seasons. Every day is pleasingly warm without any winter storms. During the summer months of June to September the sun is very hot and there is almost no rain. In July and August the average daily temperatures can reach 40 °C. The average daily temperature during December to February stays around 16 °C (61 °F). October to March is when the rain usually falls (50-100mm or 2-4in per month, comparable to rainfall in London).

Seville part-time program

We offer this option to those who are unable to take the full-time four-week program due to work, family situations or other commitments. If an applicant decides that they need to take the part-time program they must commit to and attend week 1 of the four-week program as this is when the entire course introduction is given. Once week 1 is completed the trainee sits down with the director and goes over his or her availability and a tailor-made schedule is created that fits in with the trainee’s availability in conjunction with the ongoing schedule of the full-time courses. The part-time course usually takes around two months to complete depending on what the trainee can commit to.

A common part-time schedule cannot be set as it will depend on the trainee’s availability. They will need to do some mornings and evenings and each individual case will look different.

An example of this could be as follows:

A student is unavailable Monday and Tuesday evenings as well as Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

They would need to make the necessary arrangements to attend the first full week of the full-time program. The director would then draft up a schedule for the following two months where the trainee would attend all of the pre-requisite classes either in the morning or afternoons. They would also do all of their afternoon teaching practices on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Once all the requirements of a regular full-time course are successfully fulfilled, they would attend the graduation ceremony of the second full-time course and receive their certificate.

Regarding accommodation, trainees can stay in the lodgings provided during the part-time program, but the minimum stay is four weeks. The price is 16€/night in an individual room. The course balance is the same for full- and part-time students and both amounts are due no later than the first day of the program.

Accommodation

Our most popular accommodation in Seville consists of a comfortable bedroom in a Spanish style apartment shared with other TEFL/TESOL course students. You will be allocated a private room and share the general living area with your fellow students. All the apartments are located near to the school premises and the beautiful, historic centre of Seville with its many tourist attractions.

Just a short walking distance from the apartments you will find a range of bars and cafes, as well as amenities such as banks, grocery stores and pharmacies. Each apartment provides a basic living room and bedrooms (including table, chair, wardrobe and bed), a kitchen with a washing machine, basic kitchen utensils, fridge and a bathroom. Bedding is included although you will need to bring your own towels.

The accommodation is available from the Saturday before the course starts, until the Saturday after the completion of your course.

Please inform us as soon as possible of any specific accommodation requests and we will do our very best to fulfil your requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are my payment options?

    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Seville itself.

    The balance of course fees are payable on the first day of class and can be made with a credit/debit card, cash, Pay Pal or bank transfer.

    Late fees of 25€ per day may be applied if payment is not made. Please note that if you choose to pay by bank transfer you must add the transfer fees to the tuition balance. If payments have not been received by the end of class on Wednesday afternoon of the first week, you must receive permission from TEFL International Seville to remain on the course.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation, accreditation fees and lifetime job assistance.

  • What are my accommodation options?

    Expand

    Our accommodation for Seville is in three or four bedroom apartments. You will be allocated your own room (unless you want to share) with up to three other trainees as roommates. Prices start at 16 € per night for single rooms and 11 € per night for shared accommodation (per person). You can pay for your accommodation before the course starts or upon arrival.

    The apartments are comfortable and simply furnished, with kitchens equipped with basic cooking utensils, stoves, refrigerators and washing machines. Blankets and sheets are provided, but bath towels are not. The apartments are also equipped with fans and electric heaters. Like most homes in southern Spain, during the winter it is often much colder inside the houses than outside.

    Each location is well equipped with grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, bars and shops. They are also well connected with the city centre, with bike routes and several direct bus lines to the main city square. City buses are used by everyone in Seville as they are safe, affordable and easy to use.

    Because these apartments are shared among other trainees, we cannot allow you to invite friends or family to stay in your room.
