I want to do the Trinity CertTESOL course in Madrid in the summer
“I want to do the Trinity CertTESOL course in Madrid in the summer” is a statement we hear a lot from our trainees on the July, August and September Online Trinity CertTESOL courses.
You have friends in Madrid and shared accommodations. You want a genuinely accepted, recognised and accredited TEFL certificate, not a cowboy one that will get you nowhere. Friends and even teachers back home have told you that the Trinity CertTESOL certificate is the best. With the Trinity CertTESOL, university credits are also awarded towards UK and international degree programmes. There are many jobs available for those with a reputable certificate in TESOL or TEFL in the UK and worldwide. Trinity’s TESOL qualifications are accredited on the UK government qualifications framework as follows: CertTESOL: Level 5; CertPT: Level 6; DipTESOL: Level 7.
The Trinity CertTESOL is the best, and it answers all your requirements.
But how can I get a Trinity CertTESOL course provider in Madrid when EBC, Madrid’s only Trinity CertTESOL course provider, offers it online?
Easy! Look how you can stay in Madrid, enjoy the summer and the never-ending “fiestas”
The Online Trinity CertTESOL course runs from 3-7 pm, Monday to Friday. That tells you, yes, come to Madrid, do the online course and enjoy your summer.
Many Madrid loving trainees were in their online CertTESOL class from 3-7 pm. They did the homework and assignments right after class from 7- 9 pm or 10 pm. In Spain, especially in the summer, dinner is not until 9:30 or 10 pm. Clubs and discos don’t open until midnight and stay open till the wee hours of the morning! So your typical day could be:
- 3-7 pm – Online CertTESOL course
- 7-9/10 pm – Rest, Homework, Reading
- 10 – 11 pm – Dinner
- 11- 6 am (Madrid Fun time!)
You can sleep late because you don’t have to be in your online CertTESOL class until 3 pm!
The summer months in Madrid go from July, August, and September to mid-October. An alternative to doing your course in the summer in Madrid is to do the online course in July. At the end of the online course, you fly straight to Madrid already a fully qualified and certified English teacher.
What about a F2F course in Madrid?
A typical F2F Trinity CertTESOL course is as follows:
Monday to Friday from 9-5, you are in school. Depending on where you live, you won’t be home until 6 or 7 pm. After being couped inside a classroom for 8 hours, you won’t have the same energy level as you would have on your Online CertTESOL course. You then have to do your homework which will take about 2-3 hours. Remember, this is after you have already been in class for 8 hours!
Pre-COVID, we were only running Face to Face CertTESOL courses. After transitioning to the Online CertTESOL course in April 2020, we have seen a lot of differences in trainee performance, quality of work, energy levels and teaching practice classes. Bottom line, our trainees on the Online CertTESOL courses were more relaxed, with hardly any student drop-out and, in general, just a group of trainees having fun while studying for their TEFL certificate.
I sometimes hear comments about being with the locals, learning Spanish quicker and living in Madrid!
But you can do all of that on these 2 options. If you did your CertTESOL at home and set off for Madrid straight away, you will be in Madrid, ready to experience what it offers. Is there any better local contact than living and working in Madrid? By teaching in Madrid, you get to know Madrileños and other nationalities living in the city. By doing the CertTESOL at home, you would have saved money because you didn’t have to spend on living expenses while doing a 4-week course. However, suppose you are lucky enough to have accommodations in Madrid already. In that case, you can still do the Online CertTESOL from 3-7 pm in your flat or AirBnB.
Lastly, a very important FYI! In Madrid and Spain in general, from 2-7 pm, the city is almost at a standstill. Why? The heat! From 2-7 pm, you can see temperatures as high as 38ºC (100ºF) or more. This explains why Madrid comes to life after 10 pm all through to 7 or 8 am the following day. And surprisingly, it’s still business as usual at 9 am. Shops, offices, stores, restaurants, leisure centres, the whole city opens as if no heavy partying ended just a couple of hours ago. That’s the “gato” in madrileños for you.
Our successful Online CertTESOL courses are full of hands-on practical activities delivered online over Zoom by one or two of our experienced tutors. The Online CertTESOL course teaches you how to plan, prepare and provide fun and engaging lessons for all learner levels and age groups.
Even though the course is entirely online, don’t expect to be lectured. This course is full of fun and practical activities that will give you the confidence to write and deliver your lesson plans. You will have the chance to teach real ELLs (English language learners) in your teaching practice classes. In other TEFL schools, you teach your peers in their teaching practice class! How can that be learning to teach? Will your peer “pretend” that he doesn’t understand English?
This is one thing we do not understand at our Trinty CertTESOL course. How do other TEFL schools expect to teach their trainees to teach ELLs when they practice with their peers during the teaching practice sessions!
Not a chance on our Online or F2F Trinity CertTESOL courses! You teach ELLs, and that’s that! End of story.
We understand you are looking for high-quality TEFL tuition at an affordable price. The Online Trinity CerttESOL is well priced for what you get. The Trinity CertTESOL is one of only 2 certificates accepted and recognised by the British Council and most international schools.
Trusted, reputable and genuinely accredited TEFL course, the Trinity CertTESOL has been leading the way in quality TEFL courses for years. Our course tutors are highly experienced, having taught across the USA, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Central and South America, Africa and online.
Where will TEFL take you?
We give you our Worldwide and Lifetime Job Placement Service as part of your course fee. You pick where you want to work, and we will put you in contact with our partner language schools in the city of your choice. They contact you for an interview to fill their English teaching availabilities. And remember, you can use our Job Placement Service anytime you want; there are no limits, and you can use it to find an EFL job at any time you want.
