Move to Spain - Have my life! It´s easy

Move to Spain - Have my life! It´s easy!

Last Sunday, this is how we spent our Sunday afternoon, chillin' up the Mountain at Montserrat! Just another mountaintop Benedictine monastery you know!

Hello, Hola! Buenos días!

So, hello to you from us lot, just a few of the Oxinity team of English teachers here in Barcelona. We're all lucky enough to live here and this day out is typical of life here in Barcelona... either chillin' in the mountains or chillin' at the beach! It's Spanish life and we love it! Move to Spain, have my life - it´s easy to do!


Let me introduce myself, I'm Ryan, and I'm from London.

   ¨Here I am at a Barca match at Camp Nou. I'm in my 30's (let's just say that!) and I've lived here in a Barcelona for 2 years now. I'm an English teacher here in the city, and I live by the beach....it's heaven.¨

My friends that I work with are from all different places and are all different ages... and we met here doing the same thing...being teachers! We are all part of the Oxinity team, check us out here on our social media links to see what kind of people we are and what our lives are like.

If you are feeling inspired, and interested in doing what we do then connect with us because we love to share our experience with others and to inspire people to do just as we've done.


Paulina 23, from Ireland.

"I've been here for 9 months now, and I am loving life in the sun, rollerblading down the beach and paddle boarding at the weekend. Before this, I was an adventurer stuck in University studying in the rain!! So hallelujah I found out that I could move here and be an English teacher!"

Nick 30, from South Africa.

"I completed a 4 week TEFL training course here at Oxbridge  2 months ago and I've been working as a teacher here since then! My first 2 months has been awesome, and it's payday next week! So I think it's time to party!"

Looking for a change?

If you are looking for something new and exciting to do or needing a change in your life, change of scenery and some time in the sun, move to Spain, have my life - it´s easy to do!

You see if you speak English it´s all you need because you can live here and work as an English teacher just like us. The only requirement is that you can speak English and that you love people....EASY!
