Advance Institute

Madrid is the political, and cultural capital of Spain, with a huge variety of cultural and non-cultural entertainment, all of which is available on a limited budget. Three world class museums (Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofia), palaces and cathedrals will delight the lovers of culture, and innumerable areas within the city centre offer different atmospheres, entertainment and the nightlife for which the city is famous: Madrid is truly the city that never sleeps.

The Advanced Institute enjoys good relations with many employers in Spain and supplies a good number of their teachers. As there are many more openings here for newly qualified teachers than in other western European countries (particularly in Madrid), given the tremendous demand for English, Spain is the perfect place for taking a TEFL course.
