My wife and I are looking for teaching positions anywhere in Spain. She has a graduate degree while I attended college - both of us have experience teaching at a private language institite outsdie of Europe. Neither of us has EU passports. Is there hope for us?

Hi,

If you visit Spain you can offer your private lessons on different boards in order to find students. This is one among dozens:

Hi Cinders

in Madrid, there is still lots of demand for native teachers, economic crisis notwithstanding.

This means that while some acadamies will refuse you point blank, others will hire you on the spot.

But some forum posters have said that immigration laws have become stricter in Spain and that non EU nationals can stay for 90 days and then must leave for 90 days before returning. But I suppose if you avoid problems with the police, then no one will be any the wiser

Hope this helps

Hi,

You'd better ask in your nearest Spanish embassy or consulate before taking anything for granted.

Hi,

The reason you havent been able to find anything yet is that very few companies recruit teachers from abroad, to teach in Spain.

For the simple reason that most hiring in Spain is done in person. If you want a teaching job in Spain, you're better off just coming over and visiting the schools.

With an abundance of teachers right at their doorstep, why would Spanish companies hire from abroad?

Any more questions, please feel free to ask

best wishes

I know a lot of people who have taught in Spain who don't have an EU passport. There are different ways of doing this. There is the no visas, living outside the system way. Whether you want to do this is completely up to you.

There are American schools where I know quite a lot of Americans who have taught there and they didn't have EU passports. If you are looking for language school work then contact American language schools and explain your situation. They can get you both over on student visas. Or at least I know of people who have done that.

But as Walter said, most hiring is done in person. It doesn't hurt to call a few places though.

Is it legit to do this?
In many countries the visas don't allow for this ...

You may be able to apply for the Ministry of Education program offered in Spain to US and Canadian citizens. It might not be the perfect fit for you but it's always worth looking into.
