Costs and Scholarships

Global Gateway for Teachers cannot provide exact cost information since costs will vary throughout the year and from one individual to the next. Please note that all estimates are listed in U.S. Dollars. Keep in mind that foreign currency exchange rates will affect the value of the U.S. Dollar and hence your budget.

Teaching Responsibilities

Students will teach conversational and written English to a variety of grade levels, but it may be possible for them to teach specific subjects using English as the medium of instruction. Further, it may be possible to fulfill practicum requirements in Spain for the ESL/ENL license addition.

Other Considerations

Proficiency in Spanish is required. Participation is not limited to students pursuing ESL/ENL certification.
