Health & Fitness / Muay Thai (Thai Kickboxing) Lessons | MMA
« Last post by Ajahn-Neil on Yesterday at 01:20:23 PM »
Hi. My first post here. Just a quick announcement.

After ten years living in Thailand, I will be relocating to Spain permanently in September/October.

I will be opening an MMA branch gym in Madrid/Barcelona (or both - I'm still checking premises and locations)  in the near future.

In the meantime, if anyone would like to workout (men, women, bring your kids....all welcome) for fun, weight loss or self defense send me a message and we can work something out at the local parks or something.

All the best

Does anyone know of a good certified translator to translate my Medical Certificate? Does it also have to be certified and notarized or just notarized? This is so confusing.

Thanks, Dan

Super helpful thread. I'm with Striker -- I'm going through the LA Consulate and am confused as to what documents I need translated. Both times when I called, the woman over the phone said I need a certified translation for the FBI Background check. She didn't say that I only needed it for Spain or whether I actually needed it for the appointment, although I'll call again.

One woman also told me that I need to get the translation certified, notarized, and Apostilled too. Talk about making things even more complicated! Has anyone recently applied at the LA Consulate (or another that requires Spanish translation) and know if any of this is true?

Also, if I get a certified translation for the FBI Background Check...does that mean I have to get the Apostille translated too? Im waiting for the FBI Check to come in the mail and it would be a lot easier if I could make a copy and send it off for translation, while I mail the original back to DC to get the Apostille.

Hi Everyone,



This thread has helped me answer so many questions for my upcoming appointment with the consulate on August 17th. Thank you!

I have a question for anyone that's gone to the Los Angeles consulate recently: if you used the notarized letter from your parents as evidence of funds, were you required to provide a bank statement? If so, how many and did it have a minimum balance?

The website doesn't mention anything but when I e-mailed they said to bring 3 statements. But I've also talked to someone from that went last month and they said they didn't need to bring any statement. I'm confused and would greatly appreciate any answer!

Thank you all!  :)

taylorgreer, I haven't been to the LA Consulate yet and have an upcoming appt, but the website says to provide "EITHER" of the following: (and lists the 3 types of documents). So if you just bring the notarized letter from your parents it should be fine. Although, if it's not too much of a hassle, I am going to bring bank statements just in case.

Hi, I was also placed in Castilla la-Mancha, #391 and this morning I received an email stating that due to unforseen circumstances, they haven't been able to send out the cartas but they plan to do so as soon as possible. Still not much information but know that you're not alone. There is a group on facebook for auxiliares in Castilla la-Mancha. There are about 19 of us and no one, besides a British girl, has received their cartas :(

You should join the group

North American Language and Culture Assistant Program / Carta de Nombramiento
« Last post by Maninskovij on July 26, 2015, 08:25:37 AM »
Has anyone received their carta yet? I was placed in Castilla La Mancha (inscrito 1520) and still haven't gotten mine. I've emailed them, emailed my education officer in the U.S., he even copied a different email to the one I sent. A week has gone by since he's done that and I'm getting worried now. What should I do?

Hi All,
My name is Darcy and I am a new member and first time poster. I know that you all have probably read these types of posts hundreds of times but I am in need of some advice or assistance or anything really. I am from a tiny twin Caribbean island known as Trinidad and Tobago. I am a recent university graduate (BSc. Psychology) and I also have an intermediate Spanish level. I have been helping Spanish speakers with English online and in person for almost 5 years and i feel in my heart that i have truly found my calling. For me the ideal experience would be for me to work in Spain but I am starting to feel like there are no avenues for someone like me. I know my chances would be better if i had a TEFL or CELTA certificate but the cost of doing it in my country is almost twice or three times the average price. I considered doing it online but i really don't want to miss out on the practical aspect of the course. I see that there are some jobs which would hire persons without the certificate but i realize the chances of getting those are next to none. My country was recently granted visa-free travel to Europe but even with that I would still need to do the impossible, which is obtaining a work permit. I feel like I am out of options but I don't want to give up on something that I really want to do. Has anyone ever been in this position? What would be the best step? I am willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish this.

So sorry for the long post :/

Thanks in Advance guys! ^_^
