IMPORTANT: Please note that while you may be in Madrid for the four-week course, your fifty hours a week workload will give you very little time for social activities. Please consider this when choosing between our Madrid and live-streaming course. Both courses are identical except for where you learn. However, the course costs are not. On average, you will save around 2,000 Euros in living expenses by taking the live-streaming course. In addition, if you choose the live-streaming course, you can still come to Spain on our Road2Spain one-year Spanish and Student Visa programme.

If you want to teach English abroad, at home or online, you need a highly-respected and valued TEFL certificate. Many teaching job listings name the Trinity CertTESOL qualification as a requirement. The Trinity CertTESOL is one of two global TEFL certificate leaders; the other is CELTA.

EBC is proud to be a Trinity College London Trusted and Validated Course Provider and part of the world’s largest non-profit educational organisations.

EBC’s TEFL course Madrid Spain staff all wish you a warm welcome.


Madrid is the best place to find a job teaching English in Spain.


Madrid has a terrific nightlife for those of you who like to let your hair down after a hard day’s work, but it is also an excellent city for the arts, culture, history and sport.

Madrid is the capital of Spain and is located almost in the dead centre of the Iberian peninsula. It is the highest European capital, sitting some 646 metres (roughly 2,200 feet) above sea level and has a population of over three million.

Madrid is a cosmopolitan city but still retains a very Spanish outlook on life. It is characterised by intense cultural and artistic activity and vibrant nightlife or, more than often, lively early morning life. The Spanish even have a verb: “madrugar”, which means to stay out partying all night and get home at 7 or 8 the following morning.

Madrid is undoubtedly the place to immerse yourself in Spanish culture. There is plenty of intellectual stimulation available at some of the best museums in Europe like the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemizsa.

If you want to sharpen your Spanish language skills, Madrid is the place as not many Madrileños speak English. Moreover, Madrid is the Spanish capital and Spain’s business and financial centre.

EBC delivers high-standard courses along with competitive moderators and keen methodology. Having said this, high-standards comes with high-expectations! If you put all the work and reel into the structure and rationale of the programme, you’ll exponentially enrich your educating skills in general. The evaluation they give when it comes to work output is fair. They constantly acknowledge your strengths and remedies your weaknesses. Having two moderators (and a student advisor) for check and balance plays an important role in sharpening teaching skills. I always believe that it is important, as an educator, to consider your learners. Their methods align with this personal take. EBC, in their programmes, carries out this approach while imprinting the same technique for their trainees to use during the programme itself and soon as they start with their careers. When it comes to application, registration, and the works, I didn’t encounter any problems as their student advisor is always available to assist. In the near future, I’d like to undergo another course with EBC. Best of luck!

The Online Trinity CertTESOL/TEFL course at EBC Madrid surpassed my expectations. As a native English speaker with some teaching experience, I expected a refresher course with an intensive workload. The programme turned out to be a one month challenge that has equipped me with the tools I need to be the best teacher I can be. I will be forever grateful to Tita and the exceptional trainers at EBC whose unending support was invaluable. If you want to excel as a professional English language teacher, I highly recommend EBC Madrid.

The Online CertTesol at EBC is an intensive program that will give you real and useful professional tools needed for a language teaching career. The course is given by professional and encouraging trainers, and the tasks given help you get a real insight of what teaching english as a foreign language is all about .

The strategies and techniques you learn here help you become a better professional, and they also offer assistance for job search afterwards. I only have good things to say about EBC and their staff.
It's a great opportunity to attend an intensive course and become a teacher. The teaching methods we obtained are unique and effective.

I would definitely recommend EBC Madrid. The course organization and content both are brilliant. The course opened my mind about methodology and classroom management, increased my consciousness about learners needs and communicative methodology in general. Also, we had fun teaching and learning, especially with the Norwegian lessons.Without Tita and John's engagement and encouragement, it wouldn’t have been possible.EBC es un lugar ideal para este curso. Dudaba mucho antes de elegir academia, pero la experiencia con EBC ha merecido la pena. Me encantó el nivel de profesionalismo de los profesores: John es un ejemplo perfecto del profesor que sabe motivar a sus alumnos. En EBC me apoyaron en cada etapa del curso que me hacía sentir muy a gusto. Mil gracias!

I love EBC and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to teach English. However, it is not a cake walk and is an extremely intense course with daily submissions. It is extremely professional and has a dual certification of TEFL and Trinity CertTESOL. EBC also provides lifetime assistance for job search. EBC is genuine, has warm people and excellent staff. Brilliant learning and teaching experience!!

I had a remarkable experience over here. Teaching is my passion but I had never taught a foreign language to a class of adult students. I learned a lot of teaching techniques and strategies over here. I had a good brush up of my English Grammar and was well prepared to teach in the real world. I had immense support and proper guidance from John and Tita, and a lot of co-operation from William throughout the course. So, a big thank you to the entire EBC team.

I found the instruction throughout the course to be very effective and I finished the course feeling excited and prepared to begin teaching. There is nothing fancy about the EBC facility, however this doesn't in any way reduce the overall quality of the course. John, the instructor, has extensive experience (both as an TEFL teacher and a TEFL course trainer), which is evident in the thoughtful organization of the course. My class had only five students, which created lots of time for personal attention and advice. Make sure you come prepared to work hard!

One thing I consider a necessary evil in my chosen profession is the tedious and arduous task of lesson-planning. Fortunately, I consider my training in this regard to be one of the best (courtesy of EBC). The four weeks I spent with them to eventually gain my certification in TEFL/TESOL were some of the most grueling I've experienced. And despite my graduating five years ago, I am still regularly in touch with them, whether for random things, or to specifically ask for help in going over material for my students (help which, I must say, they're more than happy to give).

Un curso muy intensivo e intenso, se trabaja mucho pero se aprende muchísimo. Muy recomendable si quieres ser buen profesor de inglés, aprendes todo lo que no sabías que habías olvidado de gramática inglesa. El profesor es excelente y sabe muchísimo sobre gramática, técnicas de enseñanza y motivación, y métodos de aprendizaje. Acabo el curso muy cansada pero satisfecha y lista para empezar a trabajar. A mejorar: las instalaciones son un poco vetustas, no ponen la calefacción, las fotocopias podían ser más oscuras para que los alumnos vean bien los trabajos, y el ordenador que hay para el uso de los alumnos es gótico, aunque el WiFi funciona muy bien.A very intensive and intense course, lots of work but you learn tons! Mandatory if you want to teach ESL and pick up lots of resources and tricks. You will relearn everything you didn't know you'd forgotten about English grammar. The teacher is highly knowledgeable about all areas related to teaching ESL, and gives lots of support and ideas. I have finished the course quite tired but content and ready to teach. Areas that could improve: the premises are a bit aged, they don't turn the heat on, students have a hard time with the quality of the photocopies, and the one computer they have for student use is from the last century, although the WiFi is very good.

EBC is a great certificate program to prepare anyone who is interested in teaching English, regardless of the country/native language where they want to teach English. The hands-on practice that you get teaching actual classes is probably the most helpful part. There are also a variety of teaching resources made available to you, including activities, expert teaching guidance and direction, and printing assistance for materials.

EBC is a great school. Theoretical basis AND plenty of practice with critique. I had no difficulty in being offered 2-3 jobs in Madrid as EBC had a good reputation for producing competent teachers with local employers. Madrid is a great place for s stay, plenty of interesting things to see and it's steeped in history. Moreover lifetime help with getting jobs after leaving. Unfortunately I had to move to the Far East to be with family, but STILL they help me! Thoroughly recommended!!

Great course. Looking for my first TEFL job was easy because our resumes were blasted to lots of good schools in Madrid. I was getting calls from so many schools, sometimes it was overwhelming. EBC was also forwarding us emails from academies contacting them for teachers. It was very intense, the job placement help they give but it is great to have so many choices. Fantastic job placement. Definitely recommend it if you want to see Europe and find work fast. It was more than I expected. Thanks guys.

I had a great experience at EBC. At first, I thought that it was going to be one of those things where you pay your money and basically just get a certificate, with maybe a little bit of training or information thrown in. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the course was rigorous and that I learned a great deal. I earned that certificate! My instructor was excellent and the experience helped me a lot. The staff are all very friendly, professional, and extremely supportive. I very much recommend EBC.

Their support in finding work in Argentina was invaluable and their continued support throughout the years has been most welcome. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a TEFL certificate.

I had the privilege of taking the EBC International TEFL Certificate in October 2007. What an amazing experience!! This course is very comprehensive, increasing the knowledge and understanding of native English speakers in how they use their language to communicate. A lot of instruction, practice teaching, and fun is jam-packed into 4 busy weeks, in one of the great cities of the world. The professional staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in assisting students to achieve the objectives of the course AND enjoy their experience. Perhaps most importantly is that the instruction is superb with a teacher who models so well the principles being taught in the course. It’s one thing to acquire the information on how to teach; it’s so helpful to see the “how-to-do-it” in action! Finding a job is what it’s all about, right? At EBC, the lifetime support offered to their graduates in finding suitable jobs wherever they are located in the world is a gift beyond measure. If you’re reading this review, thinking you might like to take a TEFL Course and teach English, this is the course to take. It will start you down the path of a wonderful educational and enriching experience which might just change your life forever in a most marvellous way. I love the EBC family!

My Husband and I had a fantastic experience with Olga and Anna at EBC in Chania, Crete. They were fantastic teachers and wonderful people who helped us successfully pass the course and became great friends as well. The added bonus was that EBC sent our CV's to a number of schools and we got a job immediately. I could not recommend the course more highly.

I got my TEFL certification from EBC in 2005, and even after 11 years, I know that I can still rely on them for support, and that in and of itself is an indication of excellence. The attention that I received and still receive today when I need it is exceptional. The course itself was engaging, with really dynamic teaching methods which I still use today, since I am still in TEFL, having decided to make it my long term career after being inspired, in large part, by EBC. Taking this course is a huge part of what made me decide to stay in the field, and with this certification, I have travelled through Asia, Europe, and South America. I have lived in the UK for 6 years, where I continue to teach and use EBC as a reference. The facilities were great, and although I took the course in Buenos Aires, I went to Spain and got exactly the same great attention and warmth that I had received in Buenos Aires. The employment opportunities which are offered after completion are to fine institutes, and no matter how much time passes, your CV will always remain with them, and their large variety of possibilities will always be available – just as they are still available to me. If you are looking for a course which is dynamic, intensive, engaging, and also great fun, exploring all of the elements that a TEFL instructor could possibly need, this is the place for you. I am thankful to have found this gem with which to carry my career forward.

I took the course almost 6 years ago, and I am now a mentor teacher working in a university in Vietnam. The course is very well structured with good support from the trainers. Almost every aspect of teaching is covered, and the practice classes are exciting opportunities to put into practice what you have learned. There are plenty of opportunities around the globe and EBC will try and support you all the way.

Excellent course and very helpful team! Lots of support throughout the course which made the challenge much more easier and pleasing. The support continues after the course has finished and it is very easy to get a job as EBC send out your cv to many schools. It is more than I expected and I would highly recommend this course/EBC if you are looking to do TEFL.

The TEFL course was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and met my expectations. It was well structured, covering teaching theory, methods, best practices, and English grammar. In addition to this, there was a sufficient amount of lesson planning, preparation and teaching to adult learners. I left feeling confident in my abilities and would recommend this course.

My experience at EBC International has been very pleasing and fruitful. Being the eldest in the student's group brought a little hesitation in the beginning of the course, but my amazing tutor, Mr. John, made me feel equally comfortable in the teaching and learning process, just like the others. This boosted my confidence in putting my maximum efforts to achieve good results. I will always be grateful to my tutor for bringing out the best in me. The journey at EBC International has been a smooth and challenging one. I would recommend anyone and everyone to be here at EBC International to achieve their goals in the teaching profession.

My experience at EBC was great, i really got what i wanted. I was trained to be a good teacher, they teachers were helpful througout the course and always gave me feedback. I had a fantastic guide towards developing my own teaching style, the classes were assigned that i saw a range of different groups of people, levels and ages which was extremely helpful. The teaching practice was essential in my training and guided me towards my career. Thanks to EBC.

A very supportive language school! I called many places before deciding on a program because there are so many options, and it can feel overwhelming without some research. I put in a lot of research! I chose EBC because the head of the school spent so much time answering my questions on the phone and making me feel at ease about the transition to Spain, not an easy task! They were very responsive to my emails and I had continued support throughout the course. I was even able to get hired at a school on my last week of classes, major win! They help you find a job and have a very good reputation with schools from my first interview experience.The course is very well organized and our instructor is beyond qualified and delightful. He has a PhD in linguistics, which I discovered secondhand because it's not something he brags about. It is clear from his instruction that he knows what he's talking about. He was very patient and knowledgable and the class is a lot of fun! It's a quality class with a team of very experienced and helpful people. I've made friends, laughed, and learned. I couldn't be happier with the program and I feel lucky to have found it!

The experience I had at E B C was what I cannot forget. During the time of the course, I learned a lot of new words and their uses. I also realised that it is not just knowing the subjects that is important but also how to teach them is what matters a lot. The lessons, vocabulary, the class evaluations and activities all put together makes the course efficient. How knowledge is best imparted to the students is also something I learned at E B C and at the end of the course I am now able to teach English effectively.

The job placement is excellent. I just came back to Europe after working in China for almost a year. EBC is as helpful now in helping find teaching jobs in Rome as they were placing me in Shanghai last year. Thanks. You guys still in Orense St? I'll drop by when I'm in Madrid. Thanks again. Ciao.

Amazing experience! I learned a lot in just one month from lesson planning to classroom management and assessing students. John, our professor, taught us to teach grammar in an easy, well-organized and understandable manner. William and Tita accommodated us very well especially during our teaching practice. For those who want to have a TEFL and TESOL certificate, I highly recommend EBC.
