Program Overview

Seville

Participants are trained to teach English before leaving. There are two obligatory orientation meetings and four optional curriculum meetings. The two orientation meetings are 1) Living in Spain (Student expectations) and 2) Spanish customs (Target culture expectations).

Participants will have teaching placements from 9:00-1:00 Monday through Thursday with free days or planned excursions Friday through Sunday. Most days, student participants will also meet with the program director to discuss their teaching strengths and areas for further teaching improvement.

Highlights

  • Teach for 100 hours in a mix of private schools, public schools, private English schools, etc.
  • Explore Jerez and Puerto de Santa Maria, as well as a Spanish cooking class, Flamenco show and a tour of Seville

Eligibility

This program is open to graduate students from all academic disciplines, although students with a background in Spanish studies or students wishing to pursue teaching English as a second language will find the program particularly appealing. Undergraduate students may apply only if they are seniors nearing graduation at the time of their application and with the permission of the Program Director.

For more information on how to apply to the University of Kentucky as a visiting student, go to UK Graduate School Admissions. Non-UK students should consult with the program director prior to applying to ensure that they have the proper academic background for the course.
