“I went to CIES to just learn English; however I left CIES having also learned how culturally diverse the world is. Today I know how it feels to step out of my comfort zone and embrace other cultures as my own and I owe it all to the unforgettable experience of having been part of CIES.”

"Getting my TEFL certificate at CIES was a wonderful experience! I spent a year in Madrid teaching English afterwards and felt much more prepared and confident in the classroom due to the TEFL course. I highly recommend studying here if you're looking to teach English abroad!”
