  2. My partner and I plan on moving to Puerto Rico as soon as we can. Ive been many times on holidays and love it! I myself am 22 and from Ireland. I do speak a bit of spanish but not a lot.(I plan on studying it more) I am a qualified Montessori teacher for ages 3-6 but at the moment just work in a pre school. I am wondering how difficult or easy is it to get a job similar to this in Gran Canaria. Also i heard teacher assistnat jobs for english speaking people are good/in high demand?

    My partner is a panel beater (fixes crashed cars) and so were also wondering is this a difficult job to obtain? All in all how difficult is it t find a job, as we plan on just going over with a one way ticket. Also is there any cheap accomodation in puerto rico to rent? Any websites etc. would be great. Any help/advice will be highly appreciated, thanks 😀

  4. Hi,
    Can anyone tell me the latest news regarding TEFL jobs in Gran Canaria? I am hoping to move over some time later this year and have heard varying reports from ‘no chance’ to ‘piece of cake.’
    I am CELTA qualified and have been working in Malta for the last four years.
    Thanks – any information would be much appreciated.
