Many teachers are already in the country when they are hired to, because of this many of the hjob opportunities in Spain never get advertised outside.

At private institutions, you will teach around 20-22 hours per week, and get paid anywhere from 625-1000 EUR. Cost of living is estimated at 500-630 EUR with living out of the major cities being much cheaper.
