No, I don't recommend this program

consider other options

TtMadrid is more than just TEFL; and for the TEFL program, they are sufficient at what they do. Ensuring you pass actually helps their numbers.
As far as the company itself, they are what you can expect from an education organization. The cost of their program/s is/are on the higher end of the local market, so I recommend you do your research. You may read all 4 and 5 stars from people finishing the TEFL program because the school has your write the review in your last day/s while you are in class so they can review it with you. Keep in mind, in the last few days of the TEFL program, of course you are pleased with the outcome of the program, because you passed, but in all reality, a TEFL program is a TEFL program, so again, do your research.
Part of the packet is to include your visa and some Spanish lessons, well you have a certain amount of time to do complete your lessons so they consider themselves a school or an academy, but in this case, it is not an academic school; therefore, they are an elective school. You elect to go to this school and you elect which program you want. From this, they feel they must control the rest of the outcome with little input from the consumer.
If you start to work after TEFL, then those Spanish classes become very difficult to attend. Going into the summer time, they have very little to no staff; therefore, even if you are available, they may not be. They shuffle teachers around so much and have you bounce from teacher to teacher. Each teacher teaches differently and is always starting over in the program. TTMadrid feels it is their right to move you to where they feel you belong rather than what you want.
As all of this is going on, you are losing time on your visa which you cannot complete your prepaid Spanish program. This is a way the company gets to keep the money without having to actually provide the credit to you. So, it becomes a lose lose on your behalf while they rake in the money. Then, if you bring this to their attention, sure they will always defend "why" but at the end of the day, it is the consumer that pays the price; in multiple ways and the consumer is the reason they are in business. TTMadrid even mentioned they can give a 3 month extension to our visa to try and finish the program, but actually, you are automatically given the extension to take care of an extension even without the school; so they try and make it feel they are there to help.
So, do your research, because other schools in the area can give you all of this, mean what they advertise, provide you with an actual job, and provide unlimited visa renewals; something TTMadrid cannot live up to.

Completely worth it!

This course was great. I loved that we got so much practical experience, as we were able to teach 6 lessons, to different group sizes, levels, and age groups. This means we leave with some experience, for new teachers like myself. They had great online resources and we studied everything from grammar to phonology. Andrea, Brittany, and Helen were fantastic, supportive and kind. It's a lot of hard work, there are a lot of assignments and deadlines, but you leave completely prepared to teach. I would 100% recommend the course!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Probably the first lesson I had to teach! I felt extremely nervous but Andrea was so supportive. I prepared really well, and I was able to do the class.

Setting you up for success

This program really sets you up to be a competent and knowledgeable English teacher. The classes are filled day to day with lessons such as grammar and phonetics but also with practical information about what it is like to specifically teach in Madrid and in Spain. With intense training and teaching practices, there is constant support from the trainers as well as important feedback. I was hired within my first week of finishing the program thanks to TTMadrid sending out my CV to multiple contacts.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Opening up a bank account with only an A2 level of Spanish. Spoiler alert: after one hour of miming and basic communication...SUCCESS!

Great course!

I had a great experience doing the TEFL Course at TTMadrid. It was hard work but I totally recommend it. The trainers were always available and a great support during those 4 weeks. Classes were fun, teaching practices were very helpful to build confidence as a teacher and gain experience.
This course will take over your life for a month, so make sure you are prepared to focus on your studies for those 4 weeks.
If you are well organized since day one, you won't have any problems in getting your certificate.

What would you improve about this program?
I wouldn't mind the course being 1 or 2 weeks longer. The schedule was quite tight and there wasn't much time to do anything else but study, prepare classes and assignments.
