Extensive Spanish Teacher Training Course in Seville
The content of this course is exactly the same as our Intensive Spanish Teacher Training course, but it’s designed for people who only have availability in the evenings and is spread across 10 weeks instead of 4. You will learn essential teaching skills and get to practise these skills on our willing volunteer foreign students (honestly, we don’t even have to force them) on this extensive Spanish teacher training course in Seville.
Countless studies have proven time and time again that we learn best how to do something by actually doing it. Reading textbooks and writing notes is important to build a theoretical foundation, but if you want all that information to sink in, you’ve gotta use it! On your extensive Spanish teacher training course in Seville, you’ll learn from experienced and passionate teachers, practise those skills on real students, and then receive vital feedback and discussion from your teacher and classmates. By the time it comes to teach a real class of your very own, the practice you’ve had at CLIC Seville will be invaluable!
Why CLIC Seville?
You want to be sure that you’re being taught how to teach by teachers who know what they’re actually talking about, right? Then what better place to become a teacher than in a language school that sees thousands and thousands of students visit us all year round. We’re kind of experts at the whole “teaching Spanish” thing. We do it literally every day.
When it comes to teaching Spanish, you will be learning from teachers and a school that has spent years perfecting its teaching methodologies and practices. And do you want to know the best thing? We’re going to teach you everything we know! We’ve spent decades discovering the best teaching methods so you don’t have to. Aren’t you lucky?
And let’s not forget one of the best things about learning Spanish teacher training in a language school – all the students! We have hundreds of Spanish language students who are more than eager to get some extra classes in with a trainee teacher. It’s a win-win situation for everybody.

What our students say
The course seemed very good and as I said the last day exceeded my expectations. I really liked that it could be adjusted to our needs and allowed us to attend several observation classes.
Not only the material was very clear but also the teacher explains it in a very simple way.
Actually, I ended up very happy and immediately recommended it to a Spanish friend who is starting to teach Spanish here. Not only did the content seem good, but also the willingness to help us.
Thanks and best regards
First of all, I would like to thank the tutor for all the help given throughout the extensive course. In my humble opinion, the course is really useful to train potential teachers of Spanish as a foreign language. The fact that I was able to do it in the afternoon to do the course and combine it with my work has been one of the aspects that has helped me the most and one of the possible success factors of the course, since we are working in some other thing we do not have too much time to comply with pre-established schedules and restricted schedules.
The course seemed totally appropriate to the idea of teacher training and I hope that in the not too distant future I can make practical use of the knowledge acquired in it. For all this, I can only congratulate you for the magnificent work done.
