Educational & Cultural Development Program in Spain

VOLUNTARY SPEAKERS IN SPAIN Is a 3-month unpaid volunteer training and development program provided by Educados International. Our program is designed to offer participants a unique cultural and language immersion experience whilst developing and gaining English teaching skills in a classroom in a Spanish school whilst living with a volunteer host family.

Placements & Locations

Becoming a Voluntary Speaker abroad in Spain is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but we have a hunch you’ll come back again and again. Life here is just too good!

School Placements:

Placements vary from Spanish infant, primary, and secondary schools in Catalonia. Teachers can usually expect to teach children from early ages to 18.


You will be placed in picturesque Catalonia, a fantastic location to serve as the backdrop of your epic life abroad. Chockful of culture, cathedrals, plazas, and churros, this province allows for a truly immersive experience without sacrificing comfort. Do you know that there is more than one official language in Spain? For example, Catalan is widely spoken in Catalonia!

The Experience:

Your week runs weekdays, with 20 hours of classroom time. This allows plenty of time for lesson planning and any extracurricular activities.


In addition to three perfect months in Spain, placements are in amazing Spanish schools and housing is provided with a host family. Positions are perfect for people who are starting out or thinking of a career in teaching English abroad but first want a fully immersive and safe experience living and learning from the locals.

My experience with the school has been extremely positive. Overall, I get on brilliant with the teachers, have many chats, great lunches, and coffees with an element of language exchange too. My host family have provided me excellent meals, hospitality, great company, family trips and are very understanding if I need anything. They also don’t mind if I want to do things independently which is brilliant and would recommend any Voluntary Speaker to come to stay with my family.


My experience so far above and beyond what I imagined. From the first day in the school the teachers are all so nice and always make me feel welcome. The students have been like a dream even the naughty older teenagers. With my host family I feel so comfortable around them all. The family haven’t let me pay for anything so far, I have tried but they will not accept as they know I am volunteering on this project, and they insist on looking after me.


I don’t have any regrets about joining and I would recommend the program to others. It’s normal to feel nervous, especially if it’s your first time doing something like this but don’t be. Remember, you´re a native English speaker and you know the language inside-out and you have so much that you can impart to the students about English and your own country. Get involved with what the host family is doing as much as possible, and this will help you to connect with them.


Absolutely no regrets, I am so glad I decided to do this, even though I missed my family a lot, it was worth it. I would absolutely recommend this program to everyone! I think it is an amazing way to get experience teaching in a foreign country. Don’t even think about it, just do it!

My general experience of the program has been amazing, I’ve loved every moment of it.

This experience has helped me to plan lessons and tailor them more specifically to certain age groups. Additionally, successfully integrating myself into an already functioning workplace was a very useful experience, let alone in a different country. I have absolutely 0 regrets, and I promise I’m not just saying that. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone thinking about teaching English abroad or even living abroad.
