The Master in Learning and Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language is part of the Teach & Learn in Spain Program and is aimed at native English speakers who are interested in developing the skills for learning and teaching Spanish as a second language.
The focus of the program is on developing and enhancing knowledge and skills in language, language acquisition, and language instruction, that are essential for both effective teaching and successful learning. It also guides understanding the process of second language acquisition in general, and of Spanish in particular. All classes are taught in Spanish.
The Master in Learning and Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language is structured into three distinct areas: academic courses, a life experience portfolio or practicum, and the development and submission of a Master's Thesis.
This program runs for one academic year (nine months), from September to June, and is worth 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. It combines onsite classes (Fridays) with online sessions (during the week).
This is a one-year Master propio and is accredited by the Universidad de Alcalá, a public university in Spain.
Students in this program have the option to be language assistants* in a school in Madrid, through which the student will come into contact with the social and cultural diversity of Spanish schools today.
*The language assistantship can only be offered to students with passports from one of the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, the United States, the Philippines, Finland, Ireland, Jamaica, Malta, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom or the Netherlands.
