How to Live in Spain – Teaching English

Teaching English for The Auxiliares de Conversación Program

Ever wanted to live in Spain but didn’t know how to realize your dream? Spanish culture is widely known for Flamenco music and dance, bullfights, fantastic beaches and lots of sunshine, not to mention an incredible artistic heritage; El Greco, Dali, Picasso, just to name a few. Spaniards also happen to have a great desire to learn English and right now, the government is recruiting native English speakers from 18-35 to live and teach in this amazing country – no formal teaching skills required. Picture yourself living there, enjoying siestas and tapas with new international friends and making enough to live on…

Lester Herrera did just that and now he lives and works in Madrid teaching English, doing what he likes to call, “his first retirement.”
