Lunch is from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. From 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. trainees prepare their lessons with the assistance of the instructors and then from either 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. they teach their lessons to Spanish students. These lessons are followed by immediate feedback from the instructors. You will not be teaching every afternoon, we aim to provide six to eight hours of observed teaching practice over the 4-week course. These lessons are taught from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, trainees are free after 12:30 p.m. and the weekend is also free. You are, however, encouraged to take your books with you to the beach so you can study over the weekend! In addition to these hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.
