Is the compensation enough to get by?

Posted by Kristin 7 years ago

I am in the process of applying for the Teach in Spain Professional program, but I noticed that the compensation for this program is only 600-800 euros a month. Speaking from experience, how realistic is that while living in spain, paying for housing, food, travel, etc? Is it honestly enough to support yourself during the duration of the program?

Yes, it is enough money to get by. Although, if you want to travel, I recommend doing some tutoring lessons. Since you only work 16 hours a week, picking up 4 to 5 extra hours isn't a big deal-also a great way to meet locals. I made an extra 400-500 Euros a month this way.
