"Things will happen in Spain, whenever Spain wants them to happen, and the joy of being alone for the ride is more exhilarating, boundary-shattering, and eye opening than I can possibly articulate with something as simple as words," Kati S., Meddeas' Language Assistant 2016/17.

Nearly two billion people - that's almost one in three people - study English as a non-native language. In the developing world, English is less of a foreign language skill and more a tool synonymous with development, expanding a country's economy and increasing its connectedness to the rest of the world. And for small countries with few native-language speakers, it also makes sense to learn a little of the world's lingua franca for business and ...

One of the things that struck me most following the showcases is how often the students go out of their way to make me feel special. Even though the school's week of festivities may officially have come to an end, the work experience is still fun and every day is full of surprises and smiles. How many people get to say that about their job?
As the year quickly comes to an end, my teaching-in-Spain days have been full of moments where I think to myself, "How did I get so lucky?" Like anyone...

Intentan mejorar los resultados académicos de alumnos hispanos. Las autoridades educativas de EEUU están cada vez más preocupadas por encontrar profesores que sepan español. Actualmente el 21 % de los estudiantes son hispanos, mientras que solo lo son el 7% de los profesores. Las autoridades piensan que si contaran con más profesores familiarizados con la cultura y …

This experience in Spain to date has been incredible and I regret nothing: I am learning more Spanish working with kids and living with a Spanish family than I ever would in University. I love the independence that Jerez has offered; it’s been an incredible experience so far. I can’t comprehend the fact that I arrived to teach in Spain almost two months ago.If someone could please slow down time that would be “estupendo”, I really don’t want to leave!

A new type of culture shock had hit me, what I could only describe as a “big-school breakdown.” Week by week I’ve adapted to the big-school culture, and with the support of more experienced full-time teachers and a lot of hugs from happy students the shock is finally wearing off and I’m hitting my stride.
In the beginning of the school year -as I teach English in Spain-, there were days where I felt like I had been thrown to the wolves as I rushed between...

Aside from the tune Old McDonald being stuck in my head when I get home, there are many pros to this program: I live a few blocks from the beach where it doesn’t go below 50F all year; everything is very, very cheap. There are many Spanish holidays. After being here for less than two months I have already visited Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, and Granada along with attractions where I live in Málaga. I feel grateful that I have the opportunity to live in this laid back, paradise of a beach town I now call home… So I’ll clap my hands!

Cliché as it sounds, there is only one word to sum up my experience in Spain and it’s a strong and proud Andalusian “oooooooooooooleeeee”.
Megan will be with Meddeas in 2016/17 programmes again!

Even thinking about these impending goodbyes makes my heart hurt a little. I’m going to skip all the emotional stuff and just say thank you: to my host family, to my school, to my students, to the friends I have made in Jérez and beyond, thank you is not good enough for all you’ve shown and done for me. I am forever grateful.
Before we get to the dreaded tears that are bound to occur whilst I write this, let’s talk about the good times that my time abroad as a Language Assistant

My new status as a tabula rasa in Spain has given me the chance to experience new things as if I were a Spanish new-born. So without further ado, until living in Spain, I had never: been a teacher, worn slippers, had a brother, ridden a horse, or eaten so much food in my entire life.
