My TEFL Experience is a small, family-run organisation that arranges volunteer TEFL teaching experiences in Granada, Spain.

Since September 2014 hundreds of new and experienced teachers have helped us run our English courses for students with limited financial resources. We began our journey in Valencia, and are now excited to continue our fantastic adventure in the beautiful city of Granada.

If you are a new teacher looking for an opportunity to gain practical teaching experience, or a seasoned professional considering a working holiday, then look no further! Our placements are perfect for those who want to jump straight into a formal classroom environment and also for those would prefer to take it easy by participating in a more relaxed way. Whatever your preference, we have the perfect experience waiting for you.

Head over to our website to see exactly what's on offer, and how you can get involved right away.

  • Develop your teaching skills in a relaxed, professional environment
  • Teaching practice with real students
  • 24 / 7 support
  • Career development through observation and feedback
  • Accommodation included


Since arriving in Granada we've teamed up with the Andalusian branch of the internationally renowned ALOHA group, who are involved in the Andalusian education system for both adults & children, to bring you a brand new opportunity. With their help, we are able to continue our focus on teaching English to people with fewer financial resources while giving TEFL teachers a perfect practice environment.

Not that I know of! We are 67 and 68.

You’ll get to practise in Valencia but for teaching you don’t need Spanish.

You don't get an allowance with My Tefl Experience, I don't know if usual to get one but it's a not for profit so I guess they have very limited funds.

Teach English or do the same old thing!

Having completed my CELTA in Seville I wanted a taste of another Spanish city to identify :

Is this going to be as much fun teaching , as it had been learning ?

Will I have the confidence to move to Spain and teach new students , with the support level offered by this school ?

The answers were a resounding yes !

The accommodation,planning,transport and introductions were all professionally managed . This resulted in me improving my confidence and knowledge of these areas , and have re-assured me that this is the path I want to take for the future.

I am now planning to move to Valencia in the next month to find work , having had this great opportunity with "My TEFL Experience" .

What would you improve about this program?
The one area I would introduce is grading of the students English language abilities through some form of early assessment.

The students I taught had varying levels of ability and while this was fun to use those more experienced to mentor/support those who struggled , it did at times reduce the further development of those more able .

I would maintain the 8 week continuous learning strategy which the school has developed , together with the detailed lesson plans provided , but integrate the lesson plans with areas of "differentiation" which would allow this development of small groups of students.

Thanks Tom!

We have definitely taken your comments on board and are working on bringing in a new level, so that we can put our students into classes where everyone has the same level. It's all a learning curve, I guess!

Thanks for your feedback, and the photos - they're fantastic!

Hope to see you in 2015.

Best regards,

My TEFL Experience - changing lives

A philanthropic educational programme where the students have a genuine desire to learn, where the staff couldn't be more supportive and where you know you will have made a difference. New teachers get a chance to put theory into practice and the students benefit from the diversity of teaching styles. Detailed lesson plans provided. A safe and welcoming home and teaching environment. Fantastic social programme. What's not to like? My only regret is that I wasn't able to stay longer.

What would you improve about this program?
More teaching hours - like seriously.

Thanks for your lovely comments NJC!

We're still working away, finding more students to teach every week. Any time you fancy another break in the sunshine, you know where we are!

Best regards,
