The Teaching Development program is designed for students who are considering a career in teaching foreign languages. Through the CIEE program, you will take courses focused on education and teaching alongside Spanish students at the Universidad de Sevilla and/or the Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO). You may also register for CIEE classes offered through the Liberal Arts program.
You will gain valuable hands-on experience teaching English or Spanish classes in an international and multilingual environment. CIEE will place you as a teacher in pre-schools, middle schools, high schools, or other private firms. The classes in which you will teach are small, typically no more than 10 students per class. Your students may have a wide range of language levels, and could range in age from three to 50.
You will take the Intensive Advanced Spanish Grammar course offered during the Intensive Session. At the completion of the Intensive Session, you will take the required CIEE Professional Teaching Development class, one required CIEE Study Center course, and two electives chosen from the CIEE Liberal Arts program, direct enrollment courses at the Universidad de Sevilla or UPO, and/or Cursos para Extrajaneros at the Universidad de Sevilla.
All courses are taught in Spanish.
