How long is the teaching term?

I want to know if it's possible to teach for only 1-3 months and not the year. Or possibly even 1 - 6 months.

The teaching program I participated in Spain was about 3 months. There are several teaching programs through CIEE. The one I did was all volunteer: In addition to teaching English 4 days a week I lived with a host family practicing English with the children and my host mother while they provided most of my meals.

From my understanding, some of the other programs are a year long and you do get a monthly stipend to help pay for living expenses. Some people teach adult professionals English, while others teach in elementary and high schools.
