One of the main keys to be a good Spanish teacher is having a vocation. Feeling passion for teaching and transmitting that love for the Spanish language to Spanish students are the bases on which the best Spanish teachers build their teaching careers. If to these valuable qualities, necessary in a good Spanish teacher, we add an excellent training in which they instruct us on how to teach Spanish to foreigners, we will have our future as Spanish teachers guaranteed.
If you already have experience teaching Spanish to international students you are probably thinking about how to continue developing as a Spanish teacher and improving your classes so that your students are more seduced by the idea of studying Spanish. With these teachers in mind, Latino Schools organizes seminars for Spanish teachers interested in taking the teaching of Spanish a step further. Check our Spanish courses at Latino Schools.
Like any living language, the Spanish language has many peculiarities that it is convenient to study separately. For example, the large community of Spanish speakers around the world brings cultural, grammatical, phonetic or literary variations to Spanish, to name but a few.
Therefore, the seminars for Spanish teachers that we give in our schools in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia (Quito, Cusco or Sucre, which is your ideal city to learn Spanish?) revolve around different topics such as cultural differences, Spanish and Latin American literature and Spanish grammar, conversation in Spanish and the construction of texts and phrases in Spanish. if you want to know more about the varieties in Spanish, check “Spanish: the same language, multiple accents“.
Learning other ways to teach Spanish
During the two weeks of our seminars on teaching methodology for teaching Spanish, you will come into contact with other Spanish teachers from different parts of the world, in groups with a maximum of 12 students.
This cultural diversity makes the exchange of opinions and personal experiences even more enriching than in other seminars where there is not as much variety of nationalities.
Regarding the number of hours of class, the program includes 40 hours of seminar each week. In addition, each student is asked to do a quarterly paper and attend an individual seminar with the program director.
In addition to the theoretical part, there is also a language laboratory, where you will carry out a conversation exchange in Spanish with a native Spanish speaker and analyze publications in Spanish.
