Barcelona In-Person TEFL Course FAQs

How much time will be dedicated to class sessions and coursework during the program?

Students should allocate a minimum of 50-55 hours per week for the course. The class hours typically run from 10:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (or 9:30 p.m.) with breaks throughout the day and a one-hour lunch break.

Here’s a simplified breakdown:

  • 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.: In-class sessions with a trainer for course material.
  • 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.: Lunch break.
  • 3:00 p.m. onwards: Depends on whether you have teaching practice that day.
  • If you’re teaching, it looks like this:
    • 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.: Lesson planning with a trainer.
    • 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.: Two trainees perform teaching practice.
    • 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.: Receive feedback from the instructor.
    • Some days, teaching practice may start at 7:00 p.m., in which case:
    • 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.: Lesson planning with a trainer.
    • 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.: Two students do their teaching practice, and feedback is provided the following day.

Students should plan on being present for a minimum of 8 evenings until 7:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m., either for student teaching or working on their final course assignment.

Is there enough free time for me to sightsee in Barcelona?

Due to the busy schedule, it’s best to save sightseeing for before or after the course.

For class assignments, there are about 25 of them over the 4-week course. These assignments include lesson plans, reflections, essays, quizzes, and a one-to-one learner profile project. Plan to spend an extra 2 to 3 hours each night and 6-8 hours on Saturdays and Sundays on these assignments. You’ll also need time to plan your lessons during the week.

Alumni Tip: “Here’s the deal: you’ll need to hit pause on your regular life for a bit. Weekends won’t be available for getaways, so if anyone plans to visit, it’s best to schedule it for after the course. Weeknight parties? Not really on the agenda. The TEFL course pretty much takes over your life for a whole month!”

Is grammar part of the course content, and are there supplementary resources available in the course materials?

Yes, Grammar is taught during the course, but students should review grammar points before starting.

More class time is dedicated to teaching grammar rather than reviewing it.

Students are highly recommended to complete the Grammar Module before the first day of class and conduct additional grammar review on their own.

There’s an optional grammar book available for purchase, titled “Grammar Fundamentals for Teaching English as a Foreign Language: A Teacher’s Reference,” but it’s not required.

Alumni Tip: “Prioritize all of your work. Don’t just do assignments as they come in. Do important things first, lesson plans and task-based Moodle assignments have to come first. Ask as many questions as you can. Pay close attention in class and take notes during all of the lectures. You’ll remember more if you take notes and you’ll value them later when you get behind on Moodle reflections. Godspeed and have fun!”

Could you provide some information about the types of English language learners I'll be teaching during the practicum?

We provide affordable ESL classes for adult learners in Barcelona. Our students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and have varying English proficiency levels.

Alumni Tip: “Be prepared for the intensity of this course; it’s more challenging than most college or grad school programs I’ve experienced.”

Are there any specific technology requirements for the course?

  • Laptop: You must have a laptop with a minimum 4-hour battery life. Tablets, Chromebooks, and mobile devices won’t suffice.
  • Flash Drive: You’ll need a flash drive that works with your computer.
  • Word Processing Software: Ensure you have reliable word processing software like Microsoft Word on your laptop.
  • Adobe Acrobat: You’ll submit assignments as PDFs. Most computers can save documents as PDFs.
  • Google Drive: Familiarize yourself with basic Google Drive usage. You can find tutorials on YouTube.

How can I prepare for the course? Can I begin working on my assignments prior to the course?

Before the course begins, it’s a good idea to refresh your grammar skills. If you need resources, websites like the British Council and English Grammar Online offer excellent grammar sections. Additionally, consider getting the TEFL Coursebook.

However, please note that due to assignment requirements, we don’t advise attempting to complete assignments before the course starts.

Alumni Tip: “Stay organized! Keeping everything well-documented saved me multiple times. Falling behind in this course isn’t ideal, but if you do, reach out to your instructors right away.

What should I pack, and what preparations should I make before I leave?

For those who haven’t traveled abroad before, you might be unsure about packing. Our advice is to pack light. Unless you plan to stay in Europe long-term or travel elsewhere after the course, it’s best to bring only what’s essential. If you won’t use it, leave it behind.

When it comes to settling into your new home in Barcelona, we’ll provide you with guidance upon arrival and during the course. We’ll help you with getting a phone, opening a bank account, finding gyms, places to shop for materials, great dining spots, and more. So, no need to fret.

Does BeyondTEFL recommend housing or arrange it?

Yes, our partners in Barcelona provide a list of recommended websites where students can find shared apartments. We can also offer advice on convenient locations within the city, often near train or bus stops.

Our partners in Barcelona also offer accommodation arrangements. The options available may vary from month to month but typically include a private room with a single (or occasionally double) bed in a shared apartment. You’ll live with the apartment host and possibly one or two others, who may or may not be Barcelona students. These apartments are generally within a 25-30 minute commute of the school and may involve a short metro ride. All apartments are located near the city center. The room prices range from 550 Euros to 600 Euros, covering accommodation from the Saturday night before the course starts through the Saturday night after it ends. Any additional nights before this period are charged at 25 Euros per night.

Staying in the same place after the course depends on availability, as we often need the rooms for students starting the following course.

Alumni Tip: For future TEFL students, it’s important to disconnect from the outside world during the certification. Remember, your classmates will be your support system, and collective thinking will get you through the program.

What should I bring on the first day of class?

On the first day of class, please remember to bring the following items:

  • TEFL Course Book
  • Pre-Course Tasks
  • Notebook
  • Laptop
  • Pen

Alumni Tip: “STAY COMMITTED. Your dedication in class participation and completing the assigned work will see you through. The end result is entirely rewarding!”
