I don't think Spanish will help you much in Germany or Switzerland... try French or Italian.

As your post title is 'job as a primary school teacher' (although you don't mention that in your post), to gain recognition of a foreign qualification in education you need to contact the EDK . Please note that although parts of their website are in English they will expect you to communicate with them in one of the national languages.

Re: job as a primary school teacher

An excellent level of German will obviously be a pre-condition to work as a teacher. Try looking at opportunities in the Zurich area: they are really missing teachers at the primary and secondary levels, from what I've heard in the news. Apparently they are putting up programs to get people from other professions to become teachers. Try contacting the Pedagogische Hochschule for info: http://www.phzh.ch/
