International Institute in Madrid
The International Institute in Spain has been one of Madrid's best kept secrets up till now. I hadn't heard of them till 2004 even though they've been around for over a hundred years. Where some schools exploit their almost non-existent infra-structure in every and any way possible, these guys have got "the" incredible "university-level" infra-structure without any of the corresponding fame. (They do share their space with American institutions like Boston University, Syracuse and Stanford.
However, despite all the beautiful architecture (the building's on the National Historical Register and is incredible inside and out), the English language department seems to operate just like in any other normal academy although it has American Cultural Studies, varied mini courses and activities and clubs for kids. Teachers here get 750€ for a 10 week, 30 hour course (3 hours per week) and unless my math is failing me, that's about 25 euros an hour (more with a master's degree), which makes this one of the better paying "on-the-premises" jobs in Madrid.
