Teaching English Abroad - León, Spain


Exploration Seminar: August 18 - September 8, 2012

Available to graduate students and advanced undergraduates with an interest in language teaching



We are excited to be offering a TESOL internship teaching English in León, Spain. It is open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates (with senior status at the time the program begins) who have a desire to gain experience teaching English as a foreign language. Students must have excellent English and a strong interest in language teaching.

Students will teach conversational English to local Spanish-speakers at the University of Leónís Modern Language Center, while living in a delightful city with a rich history dating back to the first century BCE. Professor Sandra Silberstein will lead the accompanying seminar, designed to support internsí teaching through instruction in language pedagogy.
