ITTI Madrid services: More than TEFL

Visa

Getting a student visa can take one month so we always recommend starting the application process as early as possible. How?. No worries we will help you throughout the process.

Bank Account

To have a bank account in Spain it is easier if you have your NIE number, an identification number for foreigners. When you come we will help you with the NIE and we will recomend the best banks to open your spanish bank account. If you don’t have the NIE the first weeks, you can also open an account with your passport. We are here to help you!

Mobile Phone

Although you can use your personal mobile phone in Madrid, it will be cheaper to get a Spanish one. We will also help you with the mobile companies here in Madrid to make the process easier.

Spanish classes

We work with Academia Contacto www.academiacontacto.com where you can take Spanish classes. If you choose the 6 months or 1 year programme visa you really have to take 3 hours of Spanish classes with your group of friends of the TEFL Course in order to get the documents needed to get the VISA in your country.

Opened in 2001, Academia Contacto is a language school specialized in teaching Spanish to foreign students. They offer courses in Madrid, as well as in Barcelona and other fantastic cities such as Alicante, Valencia, Granada and Seville.

Classes are are truly dynamic and interactive so that you can learn and improve your knowledge of Spanish in a fun but professional way, in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.

Spain, particularly Madrid, is experiencing an increasing demand for English native speakers for Spanish schools, bilingual centers and bilingual education.

The internationalization of services along with the economic crisis together with the lack of training in English of certain generations imply a high demand on teachers of English. Madrid is a city where the economy is centralized in the service area and is home to the largest companies of the country and the world.

The TEFL certifications have gained popularity in recent years. The increase in the number of Americans and British travelling abroad to teach English made the ESL certifications essential to show the competence of ESL teachers.
