The figure on utilities is now way off. As of January 2022 I'm paying €144 a month for electricity alone, and that's without air conditioning or central heating. Estimate now €200 monthly just for electricity and water.

Hi, I'm from Lithuania and I'm planning to try to work remotely from Valencia. How about internet speed in and coworking spaces in Valencia?

Globetrotter I don't know if you will ever read this. Nevertheless I will reply. Teachers have no minimum wage as it depends by the company, school, academy... and as well as your experience.

Spanish is not a must (just really basic) if you want to teach in an International School or in an international language.

With your career and experience, expect at least a wage of 2.500€ brut per month in a private school. It's easy with your profile, you will likely find a job easily and if it's not in Valencia city it will be somewhere in the surroundings, the north-western part of Valencia has plenty of private and international schools where you can go with your CV and experience. Good luck!

Hello! We are a family of 3 who currently lives in Yaounde, Cameroon. We've been going around the globe as international educators. We're in fact finishing our African adventures in 2021. We fell in love with Valencia and we've decided to buy a property in 2020. Although, we're wondering if we can continue with our teaching careers in Valencia. How possible is this? Would schools hire teachers with non-Spanish credentials? Our experiences are mainly outside of Europe; international schools with various curriculum experiences - IB, American, Montessori, AEFE and English National Curriculum. We hold French nationality.

What would you say is a minimum wage for teachers in Spain?

Thanks for your input!

This is actually quite accurate.
I live in Valencia myself (originally from Holland) and write a lot about moving to and living in Valencia on SpendLifeTraveling.com but never did much about cost of living so this is a great resource, thanks.
