Trip overview

A home away from home in every country in the world – a traveller’s dream. It’ll take a while to do this in every country in the world, but we can help. Starting with Spain! 

Get taken in by a local family with a private room in their home and full board – in exchange for some English tutoring (..and no tutoring or teaching experience is necessary!).

On this life-changing trip, not only do you become part of a local family for 1-3 months while you help them learn English, when you go with Global, you get: 

  • Host Family Match - Personally approve a family (via access to family profiles and optional video calls) before you even leave home. 
  • Private Live-In Accommodation - Rent and utilities are included on this trip, which means you get your very own bedroom in your host's house. 
  • Unlimited Host Family Rematches - Contract over but you’re not ready to go home? Enjoy unlimited host family rematches to keep the adventure going. 
  • + way more! 

This is the perfect trip for someone looking to have a meaningful travel experience in a limited time frame. There’s no special visa required for this trip – only a standard tourist visa. Which means you could call Spain home for up to 90 days! 

Can you picture it? Living it up in Spain, being immersed in Spanish culture as you explore the intricate streets, varied cuisine, and passionate people. 

All while having your own private room and three meals a day provided by your host family. 

Your tutoring responsibilities – a couple of hours a day teaching English to the children –  only happen in the afternoon. Which means your mornings are free to spend how you please. 

You could have a sleep in after spending the night dancing flamenco. Or get an early start to beat the crowds as you hit the highlights of your new home. Before heading back to your host family for your afternoon duties. 

Having a home away from home in a foreign country is bucket-list stuff. Especially when it comes with a private room and full board with a local family. 

In exchange, you tutor the children (and sometimes the adults) to speak English for a maximum of 15 hours a week. 

And when you book with Global, you book with the best. You get the full experience for a fraction of the hassle.

Your host family placement is confirmed (by you) before you leave, so you know exactly what you’re getting into.

Trip details

If you’re reading this, it means you have one of the most valuable skills around the world: an understanding of the English, German, French or Italian languages.

Although we probably take it for granted because it’s all we know, these key languages are a very important tool for peoples' employment opportunities in foreign countries.

Families are eager to give their children the best possible advantages in life as well as becoming more proficient themselves. Having a live-in tutor means that families will be able to listen to and practice it in the privacy of their own home.

Our Tutor in Spain trip is designed to have you become a family member within your host family, which will allow you enough time off to truly utilise your time abroad.

Our expert team offers assistance with all those essentials you need to get set up overseas, like finding the perfect host family and 24/7 support to live-in accommodation.

Simply, we’re here to ensure your transition to living abroad in Spain is seamless.

Arrive into the country with the confidence that you are many steps ahead of all the other tutors in Spain.

You’ll arrive knowing that you’ve got an approved placement with an incredible pre-screened host family.

With your accommodation taken care of and your agreement arranged before you go, you’ll be able to settle into your new home straight away.

Get to know your new family and embrace the Spanish lifestyle with open arms.

We are here to guide you throughout the entire journey to ensure you feel confident knowing you are in the best hands possible.

With most of your living expenses covered, you can spend your travel budget exploring the beauty of Spain!

You can tour the different landscapes and join your family on weekend getaways. If you’re looking for a trip that allows you the time and freedom to explore, this is it.

Don’t waste your precious time sweating the logistical stuff. That’s exactly why we’re here - to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of having to return home early.

Make your time count on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and prepare to immerse yourself in the laid back and relaxed culture, foster your personal growth and develop important life skills your future-self will thank you for.



To qualify for this trip, you will need to have some form of tutoring or child-caring experience, have your high school certificate or diploma and meet the visa requirements. EU passport holders do not require a visa. As a Tutor, you can not smoke or have suffered from any mental health or eating disorders in the last 12 months. You'll be required to obtain and pass a medical examination as proof.

What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, souvenirs, daily subsistence & spending money.

Accommodation & meals

You’ll be staying in your own private room in your host family’s home. All meals will also be provided by your host family. 

You can see yourself as part of the family, living in their home and eating meals with them in exchange for your English speaking skills. 

This means you’re expected to help out around the house as any other family member would.

Trip itinerary

Before you leave

Meet your host family over video calls following a thorough matching process, before you leave home.


Once you land at the closest major airport to your placement, your host family will be waiting for you. You’ll meet the family and set off to their home. Spend your first few days settling into your new home while you explore your surroundings and get to know your host family.

Week 1+

Since you chose your host family, agreed to your responsibilities, and signed a contract before you left home, there are no surprises when it comes to your specific responsibilities.  You’re spending a few hours each day playing with the children, teaching them to speak English in a playful way in the process. Most weekends are free. Giving you plenty of time to explore the rest of Spain.


We’ll constantly keep in touch with you throughout your stay. If at any point during your trip you need advice or support, our team will be on hand to answer all your questions. Don’t forget you can jump on our social media pages too or buzz our 24/5 emergency support line for urgent matters. Remember, you have 5 nights of free hostel accommodation up your sleeve to use at any point during your trip in Spain! You can squeeze in a trip to Ibiza, San Sebastian, or country-hop over to your European neighbours like you’ve always dreamed of...

Why Tutor

Imagine being an English Wizard, casting knowledge spells on eager kids in a stunning location!

You'll empower young minds and in return get a cozy private room, yummy meals and the security and comfort of a fully background-checked host family to welcome you with open arms.

And only being required to tutor for 15-30 hours per week means you'll have plenty of time to explore and soak in the world-renowned Spanish culture.

English has been a global language for decades. And with globalisation showing no signs of slowing down, being able to speak English is getting more and more important. 

Hiring a live-in, English speaking tutor is a popular way for the whole family to learn English in a comfortable environment.

Something you’ll be doing on this trip! And by doing so, you’ll open up the whole English-speaking world to a Spanish family. 

This rich cultural experience is the best way to get to know a new country. This is the way to get to know the real Spain – first hand.

Are flights & insurance included?

While we would love to include flights and insurance in our trip packages, it is not feasible to have a fixed price due to the diverse destinations, trip durations, and individual coverage needs of our travellers from around the globe. However, once you register for the trip, we will assign you a dedicated Travel Concierge. They will work closely with you to arrange the ideal flights and insurance tailored to your specific adventure. Rest assured, our team is here to ensure you have a smooth and hassle-free travel experience from start to finish!

Will I get to meet the host family before I go?

Just like our Au Pair trips, we are renowned for our exceptional matching process. We invest time in understanding your preferences, enabling us to provide access to a diverse range of family profiles and involve you in the matching process. Through video meetings with parents and children, we encourage a strong connection and compatibility. As your departure approaches, you will have the opportunity to reconnect with your host family. We take pride in this thorough process, ensuring that uncomfortable situations are exceedingly rare. However, if any unforeseen circumstances arise, rest assured that we are committed to finding you an alternative placement. Your satisfaction and well-being are our primary concerns as you embark on an incredible tutor experience, creating cherished memories with your host family.

How many hours of tutoring is expected, will I have much free time?

We typically require tutors to dedicate around 15-25 hours per week to tutoring. These sessions are usually scheduled after the children return home from school, giving you lots of free time to discover and explore the incredible surroundings of your new home. This balanced schedule ensures that you have the opportunity to make the most of your tutor experience while also immersing yourself in the vibrant culture and attractions of your destination.

Do I need a special visa to be a tutor?

For most placements that are less than 3 months in duration, tutors typically travel on a tourist visa. However, if your placement extends beyond 3 months, our dedicated Trip Coordinator will guide you through potential options for obtaining a long-term visa. We understand the importance of compliance with immigration regulations, and our team will provide the necessary support and information to ensure a smooth visa process for your tutor journey.

Do I get any pay as a tutor?

While some tutor trips may offer a small weekly stipend, most placements are unpaid. Instead, in exchange for your valuable assistance with the children, you will receive full board, including a private room and meals. In certain cases, additional benefits like access to a car may be provided. Furthermore, you will have the privilege of staying with a welcoming host family who can offer guidance, support, and the firsthand knowledge of being excellent local tour guides. Your rewarding experience as a tutor comes with the security, comfort, and incredible cultural immersion that a host family provides.

Do I need any tutor experience?

No, prior tutor experience is not required at all! While having some childcare experience is preferred, it is not necessary for you to have any formal tutoring background. As long as you possess a strong sense of responsibility and are proficient in English, you will be able to excel as a tutor. Your dedication and expertise in English skills will enable you to guide and support the children in their learning journey. We prioritise your enthusiasm, commitment, and willingness to make a positive impact as a tutor in creating a valuable and rewarding experience for both you and the children you work with.

Why should I book now?

After the last unexpected disruption to travel caused by the..c word..people are now more eager than ever to venture out and explore the world, determined not to miss out on any experiences. Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12+ months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global. This is where you will find exclusive Marketplace Deals, a unique social network to connect you with other like-minded Global Travellers, access to our Academy with an ever-growing range of skills & languages, and so much more. Think all of your favourite apps merged into one, but like, better? Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend or partner?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together! But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join. And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

Can I bring my pet along?

At Global Work & Travel, we share a deep love for animals and fully understand the special bond you have with your pet. We recognise the challenges of embarking on a trip without them. Due to travel restrictions, requirements, and limited pet-friendly accommodations among our host organisations, we regretfully cannot facilitate their inclusion in the journey. However, many of our customers choose to entrust their pets to a family member or friend, embark on their adventure, and return home to wagging tails and furry cuddles.

What happens if I need to cancel my trip?

We know that life can get in the way of travel, so all our trips come with a great deal of flexibility. In most cases, if you cannot travel on your selected date, you can place your trip on hold to deal with whatever is holding you back, and continue in the future without incurring any penalty. You may also have the option of transferring to an entirely different trip and destination as well, or even transferring your trip to a friend or family member. In the event that you need to outright cancel your trip, if you give us 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put toward any other trip that we offer, including tours through third-party providers, as well as holidays through, and is valid for 2 years from date of issue. As international travel can be complex, your options are based on the progress of your trip organisation and our support team can assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
