Teach English in Spain

23rd November, 2015 | Article By Parábola Homestay Exchanges

Come to Spain for a few weeks or months!

Families will host and provide meals to Native English Speakers, under 30 years old, in exchange for English conversation.

Homestays with families in Spain (Madrid, La Coruña, Vigo, Málaga, etc.).

Middle-class families in Madrid and elsewhere in Spain, offer full board (free meals and accommodation) with your own room in the family’s home. This offer only applies to Native English Speakers from the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. There is no compensation, this is an Accommodation English Exchange.

Most people who take advantage of this are typically under 30 years old. This is what families request. This is on an individual basis, never for more than one person, and no children. Host families can’t wait to have Native English Speakers to stay so they can practice English at home!

In exchange all you need to do is engage in English tutoring for 2 hours every evening with the host family, Monday to Thursday. You can do your own thing during the day and Friday to Sunday! Your obligation is making sure your host family engages in English for TWO hours per night Mon-Thurs, and for this you are getting full board and free accommodation.


This is NOT a job I am offering, but a chance to come live in Spain for a few weeks or months and enjoy the Spanish lifestyle at its fullest!

This is an offer of accommodation with nice families who have already done this in the past and can’t wait to practice English at home, with you.

You are responsible to keep your own room tidy and proper at all times. This way, if there is a maid in the home, he/she can easily clean up. There is NO eating in the room. Eating should be carried out in the dining room or kitchen.

You can earn some money by privately tutoring English outside the family, take Spanish lessons, visit the city or travel during the weekends — this is totally up to you. If you can legally work in Europe you can also find a job.

If you are interested in this fantastic opportunity, or know someone who might be, please send me your Resume/CV and I will contact you for an interview over Facebook or Skype. Before you commit, I will put you in touch with the family (via email or videocall) so that you can find out more about them, making sure it’s a good match.

I will also NEED a police background check / References and testimonials upon request.

Homestays are usually a minimum of 1 month, and typically last for up to 3 months (length is flexible).

There is an administration fee of Euro250, payable only once you have met the family in Spain via videocall and once you have all their details in terms of location, address, phone and e-mail. This fee is paid once (NOT per month). If the Homestay Exchange is longer than 3 months another fee will apply.

Plane Ticket to Spain is NOT included. You must pay for your own plane ticket to Spain.


The process is as follows:

1. I need your résumé/CV, age, 3 pictures and period of the year you would like to come.

Please send to homestaysinspain@gmail.com

2. Then we need to schedule a videocall interview on Facebook or Skype.

3. After the videocall I will start proposing a family to you (their location, photos, time of the year and period).

4. If you like the family I proposed then we shall schedule a videocall with them.

5. If both parties think it is a good match it is a go!

6. Payment via PayPal will happen ONLY once you have met the family via videocall, and before paying you will also have been provided with their phone, address and photos.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

You will see attached to this post, pictures of different Americans and Brits who have stayed with families in Madrid, La Coruña, Vigo and Málaga.
