This course is for people who are working or want to work as teachers of Spanish as a foreign language. It is intended both for Spanish and foreign students of Spanish philology (or other philologies) who either want to teach Spanish or who already teach but need a refresher course to keep up-to-date with new methods and materials. With this course, the participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on how to deal with specific problems of teaching Spanish as a foreign language. As well as providing information about the theoretical and practical aspects of the teaching of Spanish to foreigners, students have access to numerous teaching materials which are updated regularly (booklist, texts, listening, games, videos, Internet, etc.). The course is organized into two separate blocks, each lasting 2 weeks.
Teachers (some of them):
* Rosa Tejero, a Philology graduate. She has been giving language classes at our school for ten years. She taught in Cairo for five years at the Instituto Cervantes. An avid reader and cinema-goer, she seduces us with her style.
A cultural program consisting of talks and cultural visits is included in the price of any course. A talk on Granada (which includes practical information about the city, location of places of interest, restaurants, etc. on a map, opening times) and another on the Alhambra in which important information is given before the visit. The cultural visits are to different places in the city of great artistic/historical interest or with stunning scenery and views. Visits are organized to the important historic quarters, and also churches, monuments and museums. A teacher from the school, who is an expert both in the subject and the teaching of Spanish to foreigners, is responsible for the entire cultural program, and can therefore be easily understood by students who do not have a good knowledge of the language.
Our accommodation is located in the Albayzín (the old quarter of Granada) and is very close to the school and to the city centre. Family accommodation, however, can sometimes be in other parts of Granada and a bit further away from the school. The city centre is about a 20 minute walk from the school but there are also good bus connections available.
