Your gateway to TEFL in Andalusia and beyond

The South of Spain has a rich and varied tradition of outstanding food, art and hospitality as well as one of the most desirable climates the Mediterranean has to offer. Here at Oxford TEFL we offer courses in two beautiful locations, Cadiz and Malaga, both perfect for training for an accredited TEFL certificate and both with tutors who are experienced and qualified to Dip TESOL/ Delta level and are ready to support you throughout the course.

Cadiz. Cadiz is a lively, intimate and friendly Spanish city on the beach; often described as “the real Spain”.

It has a big international airport and the city provides easy access to other cities such as Sevilla, Granada, and Cordoba. The average annual temperature is 23ºC or 73ºF.
