The city of Cadiz
It has a long and fascinating history, absorbing monuments and museums and some enjoyable places to eat and drink – yet it’s the people of Cádiz, the gaditanos, who make the place truly special.”
With an approximate population of 130,000, it is large enough to have plenty going on but retains the intimate feel of a small and friendly town. Often referred to as “Little Havana”, its people are proud of their openness, warmth and love of life.
Andalusia, and especially Cadiz, conjures images of fine sandy beaches and low-cost water sports (sailing and surfing, and wind and kite surfing are particularly popular), flamenco, “tapas” and “fino” (or sherry, but not like your grandmother used to drink).

Throughout the world, and especially in Spain, teaching younger learners (3-18) has become a key part of TEFL teachers’ remit. We offer a short introductory course which gives you the skills you need to start teaching younger learners feeling well-prepared, confident and enthusiastic. The course covers key areas of methodology alongside practical applications and will leave you with an extensive range of ideas and activities to use in the classroom. The course has been designed in close collaboration with a large number of employers and is targeted to give you exactly the skills they are looking for and that you need. The TYLE course takes place over three days and involves four and a half hours per day of workshops, discussions and video observations. Course cost: 195€.
- Combine your TEFL course with learning Spanish
The Spanish component of the course is provided by a sister school in Cadiz, where a lot of our trainees go to learn Spanish. They have all been very happy with the course, which has a small class size of a maximum of seven students to ensure progress. Classes are available from beginner level upwards.
