I am an American chosing between Trinity TEFL in Madrid or IH CELTA in Sevilla. Of course Sevilla sounds wonderful due to the fact that I want to be in Andalucia and closer to Portugal. Any comments on which certificate is most useful in Europe and whether finding jobs in either city is more probable?
Also I would be pleased to hear from anyone with experience in Portugal. I hope to venture there after the certification.
Madrid does seem to be a better choice for all of these reasons. I'm just concerned that the cost of living will be very high and that travel to Portugal may also be expensive. I am able to afford the course but will need to spend as little as possible until I have found work. Sevilla strikes me as more simple which I like. (I have spent the last year in New York City and am looking forward to calming down.)
