Should you decide to remain in Barcelona, our local knowledge and contacts are unparalleled due to our associated training company Orbit Training, prevalent in the Spanish corporate training market. Opportunities exist in the Barcelona area, not just within the city, but also, if you prefer a quieter and more traditional “Spanish” lifestyle, throughout the whole Catalonia province in which Barcelona is situated. Other towns in Spain such as Madrid, Valencia, and Seville also offer great teaching opportunities.

Barcelona Accommodation

When it comes to accommodation we know that our students have individual tastes and preferences. With this in mind, we offer clean, affordable and fully serviced facilities in a number of locations throughout the city. The cost of staying in our “standard” accommodation for the duration of the one month course is €450. You will be housed in a clean, attractive, comfortable apartment, shared with two or three other students, either completing a TEFL course or studying other educational courses. Most of these apartments are in the “Eixample” area, the city’s main shopping and business district and near to the centre. There are plenty of reasonably priced places for food and this is a good place to be at night because many of the city’s trendy bars and restaurants are located here. Should you wish for more luxurious up-town accommodation, with a quieter and more sophisticated ambience, this can be arranged, albeit at extra cost.
