The RVF International Teaching English in Spain Program

RVF International cooperates with public schools all across Spain that are looking for native English speakers from the United States and Canada to teach their native language (English) as language assistant teachers.

Our RVF International Teach English in Spain Program provides visa support, support moving to Spain, support with residency status in Spain, Spanish language courses and cultural immersion opportunities, and complete support throughout the duration of the entire first year.

The local regional governments in Spain completely operate and manage the school placements and the connection with the schools, while RVF International supports applicants throughout the entire application process, placement process, visa process, residency process and everyday matters both big and small.


The only requirements to participate are as follows:

  1. Must hold an American or Canadian passport
  2. Must hold at least a four-year university degree (Associates Degrees not accepted)
  3. Must be between the ages of 18 and 59

No prior teaching experience is required and only a basic level of Spanish is needed to participate.


“They help with all the bureaucratic nonsense that I would not be able to do myself…they make sure that everything, every form, every application, everything, is filled out correctly, they make the appointments for you…I would not be in Spain having this incredible opportunity if it weren’t for RVF International.”

-RAYMOND (CONNECTICUT)

“I felt very overwhelmed, frustrated, and wondered if coming to Spain was even worth the headache. A friend recommended that I reach out to RVF International and I am so thankful I did. RVF guided me through the aspects of my move to Spain that were causing a lot of anxiety.  They quickly responded to my emails, answered any questions I had via a Skype call, and sent additional step by step resources to help me transition to living in Spain for a year. Even though I speak fluent Spanish and have spent a lot of time traveling abroad, working with RVF gave me the peace of mind and confidence along with the resources I needed to make this transition as smooth as possible.”
