Paulina from Ireland. The time really does go by quickly. I have no regrets. I am glad I applied for this program as I am gaining teaching experience and I see what the day in the life of a teacher looks like.

In the school: One of the best moments for me is seeing a personality change within the group of teenagers that I teach. Some of them went from having no interest and not participating to making jokes and laughing and enjoying the class. It is nice to see that change happen, the students become more open, and they give me ideas on what they like to do.

Rebecca from Ireland. I would definitely recommend the program, as I’ve mentioned already, the work/life balance is great, you are gaining so much experience but also have free time to do whatever you want!

My expectations have definitely been met while on this program - maybe they have even been exceeded. Teaching is always something I was interested in doing and this experience has solidified that for me! You don't get opportunities like this in Ireland so I am very grateful that this program has given me the space to find out for myself if teaching is a career path I would like to explore further.

Loretta from Ireland. I have no regrets in joining this program. I would highly recommend coming here if you would like to experience teaching and the experience of living here in Spain.

So far, I have become more confident when it comes to preparing materials for the classes and now I know the level of English for each class. I have also become more confident and independent as a person as this is my first time in a different country on my own.

Day out in BCN October 2023

In October 2023, our new Voluntary Speakers gathered in Barcelona for a day of connection and sharing experiences. They're already making a difference, building bonds with their host families, and enhancing students' English skills in their assigned school while learning to become future English teachers. Wishing them luck until their December return home! Interested in joining us for the January 2024 intake? Reach out for more info! 🌍🗣️

I have zero regrets joining this program and if I could I’d do it again! I would recommend this to anyone with a friendly attitude and an open mind. It is something you won’t regret and remember for the rest of your life. I would highly recommend this for someone who is looking to teach English abroad, as it gives you a real taste and experience of what it is like to teach English.
