Alguien sabe que es el mejor sitio para citas (frases) en la lengua española?
Me gusta una cita de Groucho Marx: "Encuentro la televisión muy educativa. Cada vez que alguien enciende el aparato, me voy a otra habitación y leo un libro."

Hi, I've found this site useful in the past, when moving to Madrid:
If you click on >Work and Residency > Teach in Spain > English Teacher Advice, there's quite a lot of useful info for those wanting to find work in this field. (there are other categories in the Work and Residency, I don't know how useful they are though).
Also >Student & Student Life > Language Schools displays a useful list of potential employers !

I'd imagine you'd have a similar problem teaching Spaniards English.
for more advanced students the problem would be less.
(I'm not saying they are right to want this - one of our most successful Spanish learners was a Polish lady (without English) who HAD to learn)
