There are two lodging options: full board accommodation with a host family or independently housing, depending on your own interests. Families in these programmes are linked to the school and chosen by its principal. In fact, they host the Language Assistant on a volunteer basis to experience a cultural and linguistic immersion.

The more Spanish you speak before your arrival the more you’ll learn while you’re here. If you are going to live with a host family, we provide you with a Spanish language online course before your arrival in Spain to help you make the most of this experience.

In this unit i learned how to become a good teacher,the role of the teacher , how to handle students.A teacher must care about the students and not about how his/her teaching.A teacher must know the students well so he/she can give them a better learning.reading again and again this unit give me a litle confidence to my self that becoming a good teacher is not hard if you will work for it.This unit helped me define the different roles of a teacher. It gave me a good preview of the differences in teaching young learners and adults. I also learnt about cultural differences that might influence the learning and teaching approaches. This first unit showed how the relationship between learners and teachers is important and how the involvement has to be mutual to be successful.
