WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?
If you speak Spanish you can communicate with 500 million people in the world! Whether you want to improve your career prospects, make travel easier, or want access to the countless masterpieces that have been written in Spanish, then Frontier's Spanish language immersion programme is right for you.
Spanish is the world's third most spoken language, after Chinese and English, and ranks second in terms of native speakers. At the end of the 19th Century, 60 million people were Spanish speakers. Today, nearly 500 million people across the world speak Spanish. Indeed, Spanish is the second most used language in international communication, and is an official language of the UN and its organisations.
Not only does this project provide you with the opportunity to develop your Spanish skills, but you will also be able to make your own contribution to the local community and the future prospects of the young generation, teaching English and other subjects in which you have experience and interest. The concept of a mutually beneficial placement is innovative and you will be sure to see the appreciation in the faces of the community that will quickly become your home.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
Starting early in the morning you will begin your days by teaching an eager class of children, using your enthusiasm and creativity when following the curriculum provided for subjects involved, which could be teaching English and sports. In the afternoon you will move on to your Spanish classes, picking up on colloquialisms whilst mastering your pronunciation. In class exercises, reading, writing, and grammar will all be covered, ensuring that you master the fundamentals before moving on to more complex subjects as your confidence grows. An evening of practise over a home-cooked meal will revitalise you and prepare you to start a new day of teaching, using your new skills to impress your students.
