I would say that overall the Teach & Learn in Spain experience teaches you much more than you would learn within just the confines of an education classroom. You are given the opportunity to jump right into teaching in a Spanish classroom and learn about a different culture, people, education system, and methods first hand. For non-education majors such as myself, Alcalá’s curriculum courses were beneficial in developing school lesson plans both in Spain and in the US. Since my year in Spain, I have continued pursuing education-related opportunities and find that potential employers are very interested in learning more about this program. Salud to those who decide to spend the year in Madrid. Have fun!
